Sounds, then, like a Porsche 930 with a RUF Short-Shift kit, a RUF steering wheel, and a K27 turbocharger (i.e. not a RUF car).

Assuming you start from a Euro-spec, RoW (Rest-of-the-World), 300bhp 3.3 930, 360bhp is quite easily attainable.. Plucking numbers out of the air as a VERY rough guide :

Up the boost pressure from 0.8Bar to 1.0Bar: ~25HP
Bigger Intercooler: ~25HP (depending on the type)
Replace 3LDZ turbocharger with K27 (7006 or 7200 model) : ~15HP
Higher-lift camshafts: ~10HP
Exhaust System: ~10->40HP (depending on how 'racey'/loud you want to go)

...I'll probably now get people saying, "It's not 25BHP; it's 24!" But you get the picture.
