With the money you would have invested in your 12 bolt, you would have to alter it drastically.
And the added weight to do so would make it much heavier than you would want.
Strange and Currie would be on top of my list to build a rear for your application, and probably do it cheaper that you doing your 12 bolt yourself.
1000 horsepower you say

for that kind of power you need a Dana 60 or a 3/4 ton or 1 ton truck axle (which a Dana 60 is...). A Ford 9" would take a lot of work to handle the power, but would be easier to do because of the plethora of aftermarket parts. Even then you wouldn't want to use the stock housing.
