You would need much more supporting parts than just the turbo to hit 1000 hp in that motor. Those mods would be to strengthen the assembly and to allow more air flow than the stock motor would allow. For $10000, I don't think it's possible without creating a gernade. I mean it might hit that on a dyno for a few pulls but there is no way it will stay together for any length of time. There are many people hitting the 1000 hp mark in that series of Mustang but they are V8 powered...turbo Ford mod motor or LSx Chevrolet for instance. Those two motors are able to make that kind of power with a turbo because they already have a foundation for strength and air flow that the Essex V6 can't approach. And yes...it's not a typo. You would be surprised at the number of LSx powered Mustangs out there.
