The 5.7 may well not fit; I don’t know anything about the external dimensions of either motor. Maybe a bore-and-stroke on the factory motor and a centrifugal blower is the way to go.

This is the most correct take of all possible takes. Perhaps a Magnuson supercharger on a Toyota 5.7 liter V8; that combination makes 550 hp and 550 lb/ft at the crankshaft without much noise or fuss.
