Headers and a bigger cam would get you some more ponies. I dont know about 350 to the wheels, but maybe to the crank. With a few other odds and ends.

ProCharger, P1SC kit, can easily take care of that 350 rwhp on stock truck. It is designed & capable of 400 rwhp/trq.

Realistically, you should be able to dyno 320 or so easily on an ECSB 4x4.

You need to set track times as a goal. HP is just a number and doesn't mean much if the rest of the truck is not setup properly to utilize all of it.

If he is just looking to have the truck "get out of its own way", than he will be fine with the spider injectors. Even though they are only 19 lb'ers they can support the number he is looking for.

Of course if you want more than definitely do a marine intake swap along with the fuel rails/injectors. A 0411 pcm swap would also benefit the tuning & allow you to rev that motor past 5800 which plagues our black box for performance.
