If you want to keep the 4.6 then be prepared to spend close to 20 Grands on it, and I'm pretty sure you'll have to stroke it in the process.
All the work will also have to be custom, nothing off the shelves available to reach those numbers.
And after it's all said and done, that mill won't be street friendly of course.

chevykiller had a thread around here maybe 2 years back about reaching 850whp.. it takes a lot of money and a shop that knows what they are doing.. then to actually use the power is another story.. a turbo or 2 will be easiest to reach your goals with, I dont know if the KB mammoth or the big whipple will get you there. to use the power you need full suspension and new rims/tires.. you'll probably be looking at sinking 20,000-40,000(I think pascal was erring on the side of cheap) into it by the time it's all done right.. the engine itself needs a ton of work, fuel delivery, forged parts.. you'll need a new transmission.. if you can dig up some old threads by chevykiller from like 2008 he was going through his build process, just mimic him.. i can't remember what he spent on his 80 thousand? I dont think he knows.

So your "goal" is to beat Z06's?

At the track? Will you ever go there?

my goal to reach 1000 hp ,any ideas ?

If all you want to do is get a pretty dynosheet to read 600-700-800 rwhp or whatever, forced induction with supporting fuel and other mods will do it and you will spend $X. If on the other, you want 600-700 rwhp and actually use it on a prepped surface like a dragstrip for ETs, then you will no longer be modding your car....but rather rebuilding it, and that will cost you $2X or even $3X.

That's why so many folk on these types of forums have high hp goals and not low ET goals.
