Are you insane? 400X cannot hold a candle to Portra 400. It is horrid by comparison.

I recently pulled Velvia 50 4 stops to salvage gross overexposure. It is unsuitable for projection (unless you have a colour balance function on your projector) with an extra strong projection lamp.

Last time I did something like this it was a cross-process in C-41 combined with a pull just to get the images off the film, colour corrected the results were much better and much more strongly saturated - you generally don't intend for low saturation when pulling out slide film.
