You will get all kinds of answers to that question.

IMO for a street car,largest displacement you can afford.

500-600 would be pushing a stock block. I know some have gotten away with it but if you want to not worry about when you hammer on it. Then you have to decide which way you want to get there. Naturally aspirated, nitrous, boost, (super charged or turbo ) . Carb or efi. If sticking with the stock block I would limit it to 475-500 hp.
