I had blown up to 8 X 12 with no problems at all! It depends on lotsa factors too. The lens play a very important role when come to large enlargement with little loss of qualities.

I've even seen Fuji Press 800 at 10x15, so 400 should not be a problem.

Depends on two factors: (1) lens quality (2) proper exposure, or, rating the film at the correct ISO.
I've rated Superia 400 at 320 and shot with my 50mm and 100mm lenses and have had some blown up to 10x15". They are excellent and detail is very good for a film of this speed. In fact, on one occasion when I was out of film, I used a friend's Kodak Max 400, re-rated it at 250 and have a wonderful 8x12 enlargement from that.
Last week, I got a 20x24" enlargement from Superia 200, sent in via Colour Lab to a CSI LightJet machine. I was really taken aback by the quality. Don't worry, films these days are capable of capturing excellent detail.

Does rating films below their ISO improve the quality (eg grain)? I have heard of pushing (but have not tried it) and pulling is still relatively uncommon....
