300HP to the wheels

I would like everyone's opinion on what it would take to build an engine to deliver a true 300HP to the wheels.
The only stipulation is that we are going to be working with a 4" bore chevy block.
The chassis will have a manual trans & lets say 3.73 gears.
Please get as detailed as you would like, the more detailed the better as far as I am concerned.

I guess the amount of flywheel hp required to deliver 300 to the rear tires will be determined by what conversion factor you use. If you feel the drivetrain will eat up 25% of the flywheel hp, then you would need to build a 400 hp at the flywheel motor (400 times .75 = 300). If you feel the drivetrain would eat up 33% of the flywheel hp, then you would need to build a 450 hp at the flywheel motor (450 times .67 = 301.5).

There are many recipes for building over 400 hp with a 350 (4" bore block) including this one I put together yesterday....
