A bone stock 350 with 10psi or so boost and a mild cam upgrade will make 500hp all day long. Turbo or supercharger will work, the important thing is properly matching them to your combo.
And while an NA engine can make 500hp it can't come close to making the low RPM power a boosted engine can given roughly equal displacements.
As noted though, a 400hp NA engine is the cheapest option.
