500 HP with no SuperCharger?

Hey guys I'm looking to try and take my SS to the 500 club but I need your help....I only have 3 things in mind

Hennessey Air intake+ Borla Long tube Headers w/ss exhaust+ a tune= 500????

I'm pretty sure I won't reach 500, any ideas how to improve my output without a Supercharger?

It you're talking about RWHP you can get there by adding a CAM.

Max you'll get with your current plan is:
L99 - 380 range
LS3 - 420 range

You won't without some internal engine work. With those mods you'd likely be around 420(ish) give or take on an LS3 to the wheels.

edit: NYRfan beat me to it. lol.

FYI^^they're referring to rear-wheel horsepower, not under-the-hood(crank, drivetrain, flywheel whatever you wanna call it) in which you'll be pretty close.

You have an L99
L99 = Auto - 400 HP from factory
LS3 = Manual - 426 HP from factory

NO PROBLEM,
I have 511 RWHP with SW headers/turbo mufflers, Stage 3 cam, Roto-Fab intake and 4:11 gears.

NO internal engine parts required,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a CAM internal?

I wouldn't purchase the HPE intake, plenty of other intakes out preformed that unit at a better price. Anywho ... Getting up to 500+ NA you'll need all your normal bolt ons plus a aggressive cam and tune to boot. Check out the NA-Bolt on section to get a better idea.
