Best way is to add 1 liter of displacement, 2 more cylinders, and a supercharger. You'll never get 400 RWHP out of a 4.0--either the OHV or SOHC--you'd be looking at around 500 HP at the flywheel, and reallistically, that's just not gonna happen with these motors.

Agreed, for the amount you'd throw into a 4.0, it'd be cheaper for a v8 swap.
