How would you go about getting 1000 hp?

I'm sitting here bored at work and daydreaming. Like all of you I have my plans to upgrade my camaro and just thinking about how all the financing is going to work out. What I'd like to shoot for is 600 with bolt ons, including a supercharger. But then I started thinking.... why not shoot for 1000? because really... the only thing better than 600 is... more than 600

so say theoretically you had years to tinker away and pay for it, how would you get to the magic number?

Here's what I'm dreaming of doing:

do what I can with bolt ons, headers, exhaust, CAI, supercharger. But while choosing those things, keeping them compatible with upgrading. i.e. 2" primary headers, probably oversized blower (or capable of pushing more than I'll initially use) and things like that. Yeah they might not be the best thing with my LS3... but I've got bigger aspirations than that, and this way you can do it in baby steps.

then... LSX short block, bored and stroked, transfer my heads (with some porting and polishing mabye) and the rest of my bolt ons.... and transplant the heart. Not really wasting any parts as I could probably sell the LS3 shortblock, and re-using everything i bought before.

I think doing it this way you could hit the magic number at a reasonable price (to some haha)

obviously.... there are other things to consider as well. upgrading axles, rear end, tranny, clutch, tires etc.

but play along.... how would you hit the magic number?

I'd take a road trip to Houston and talk to the Hennessey guys.

I don't have anywhere near the skills it would take to do it personally.

Get an SS, a pair of LT's, some Duct Tape and a ton of Zip Ties....

426 HP + 312 HP + 312 HP = 1050 HP

It's simple math!

$20K no way....It would take a min. $50K for this.

The Henessey package for 1000 hp Twin Turbo Upgrade is like $59,500
