Default turbo engine needs

ok ive got the 302 stroker kit from BBR, which has the forged cobra crank, manley h-beam rods, forged pistons and whatever... i also have comp stage 2 cams with titanium retainers and beehive valve springs...along with a BBR carbon fiber driveshaft, capable of 1000+ HP and 4.10 gears, a SPEC stage 3+ clutch kit capable of 1100 RWHP, and SPEC aluminum flywheel on the way... i want a HP turbo from turbochargedpower.com, a stage 2 kit capable of 750-1000 RWHP, w/ a 67mm garrett turbo...is there anything else i need that will make this a safer HP level for my car?

Yeah, the knowledge to put it all together yourself, or ask specific questions. Whatthe hell is a "safer HP level for your car?" There is no answer to that question. You don't even know enough about what you're doing to ask sensible questions, and you're going to put 750 hp. in a Mustang?
Do you have a will? I want in on it, 'cause you obviously have more money than you need, and you're probably going to kill yourself. LOL

+1 for sure!

First off, those gears are crazy for that kind of HP. You are going to have one hellof a time getting traction. You would be doing better to 3.73s or even 3.55s. 4.10s on a N/A motor: sure thing. On a motor with that kind of HP? No way. If this is a dedicated strip car with a full race suspension and SLICKS then you might be able to get away with those kinds of gears...but otherwise, no, get something else.

If you are racing you need to consider your safety rules. For the kind of speeds you will be achieving you will definatley need driveshaft loops and you will probably need a roll bar/cage, electrical shutoff, and so on.

Like vsop said, you are going to need a very serious suspension otherwise you'll just be spinning and sliding all over the place.

As for "safe power level" you need to talk to your turbo shop/installer and find out your fuel system needs and so on.
