Holy cow dude, you have big dreams. That motor only had 140 hp stock. Supercharged and with around 8 lbs of boost it still only made 230 hp. Granted headers and a ported blower opening would get it over the 250 mark you seek, but to get there with an NA (naturally aspirated) version isn't going to be easy. And being "reliable" with that HP increase is a contradiction of terms.
