Default Twin turbo shelby gt

Hi I'm new to the forums and just had a question. So I'm in the marines and my mustang is at home(New York) I'm currently in California. I was putting a twin turbo kit in. Two garret garret 2871 r turbos.
With 50lb fuel injectors, dual high flow fuel pump, precision 750 hp inter cooler and a custom tune. I was getting this because i would like to continue onto the engine soon and i felt i could get more hp out of this as i go. My question is how much hp am i going to be looking at now with this set up. I want to keep it safe my shelby only has about 19000 miles on it. Any ideas or suggestions?

to make it safe you would need to add forged parts to the interanls of your engine. forged pistons, forged rods, crankshaft. these parts will allow the engine to take more stress. might want to look at stronger/bigger cams also

Watch your transmission with that set up. the automatics definitely cant handle that power, and I'm not sure how long a manual will either..

yea, might want to buy a transmission that can hold all that power. Pretty sure the stock one won't handle it too well at all.
