You can either upgrade to a C38 or sell the supercharger. You will make back a large part of your money and you can spend that on a TS2 kit which will get you a very nice powerband.

You can't make 400whp without spending a bunch of money.

You won't make 400whp without spending a LOT of money.

C38 lvl II will give you ~350 if you get cams/headers as well.

That would work also, but 400+HP on a 330, even with a turbo, is probably going to need either a built motor or a race gas tune. I don't think you will get there with stock compression and 91-93 octane. You also have to wait for the HPF kit and I haven't seen any hints that they even started working on it.
