Stock fresh C heads, stock forged crank from a Cobra, billet rods and probe pistons.

You'll also need to completely overhaul the suspension, chassis, fuel, driveline etc...

What are you trying to do with this car? What are your goals? Have you ever had a 4 figure HP car before much less 500 or 600?

Looking at about $20k for a well done 1000hp built car and that's if everything goes to plan.

Honestly I haven’t ever owned have driven my buddy’s 72 nova with 700 hp car a few time and my uncles 76 fair months that had close to 900 hp but that’s about it so I have had the feel of it. And pretty much street car I’d like to take it to the strip a few times to actually get on it but mostly for bragging rights I suppose. And it’s a project car so it’s nothing that I’m trying to get done right this second gonna take my time with it but would like to accomplish it within the next couple years

I'd say you start with just a good build and a supercharger. Make the bottom end 1000hp capable if you WANT but not really needed. Start at 400-500 and move up from there.

Honestly if you want to do it the easier and probably cheaper (or the same price) way, sell your car and buy a new 2019 GT. Exhaust, tune and tires and those run 10s.

TVS 2.3 and you'll be good for more power than you'll be able to use on the street. You need to make sure you can put that power to the ground.
