Injectors, turbo, chip, and trans. That ought to get you started.

You can get 500 streetable horsepower to the wheels......
300-350 is a good number to shoot for but go with what 66Bronco said. With the stock setup and a chip, the most you'll ever see is about 200-220 RWHP. In addition, your automatic transmission is going to be hating life with much more than that so plan for a full rebuild before it breaks.

How much money do you have? Anything's possible.

The valve body won't make the transmission any stronger. If you're going to add one, just spend the money and get a new "built" transmission.

yes, but a valve body can prolong its life, by making the trans shift quicker, thus putting less wear and tear on the clutches
