Twin Turbo Chev Build

I have a 72 chevelle that i am building a 454 with twin turbos. after reading other posts there is some information that all you people want before you can provide me with the information i need. i have a family friend building a 67 nova thats all fiberglass with tube chasis and he is putting in a 650ci with 300 shot of nitrous on it it is putting down just shy of 1000hp so figuring power to weight ratio should come out to a 8.3 to 8.5 unless our math is off lol so needless to say my chevelle has to be faster but also has to be daily driven on pump gas i ran into a guy at a car show today that had a tt 350 in his car he said i have to go with one carb and to stay away from edelbrock becasue they leave pwoer behind also said that he is making 860 at the wheels on pump gas at 8psi is this accurate you think i never saw a dyno slip

so here is the deal daily driven twin turbo engine that is capable of being electronicly upped to 1200 to 1500 hp on pump gas let me know about what boost you think i will be pushing and if there is anything special i need to do to my engine aside from the foreged low compression internals (rotating assembly) i also need to know about head and cam set up because i want to run 6000 rpm aprox if possible if there is anything else you guys need let me know

This question alone tells me that you don't know whether it's Tuesday or 9:00 O'Clock. This whole idea of yours is pie-in-the-sky son, pie-in-the-sky.

Even if you had a budget of $200 a month to spend on it, you could be expected to be able to drive it in the early spring of 2021. That's assuming that you were able to do the research and study it would take to engineer the whole mess.

Any idea what it'd take to keep it in good tune?

Do you own a micrometer?

How can you estimate 1200-1500 hp without knowing all these things? You never did mention turbo sizes so there's another unknown factor.

I wish high power builds were as easy and cheap as people believe them to be. As tech said, Horsepower costs money, how fast do you want to go?
A 1000 horsepower is not very streetable, and since you want such high power numbers do you realize what has to back these numbers?
There is no way to build this engine cheaply, everything,, including the block will have to be a after market bullet proof piece to survive that kind of power. The drive train will have to be one in the same. This isn`t the kind of build you sneak up the power ladder, this is a all out or nothing build. Why I say that is because if you try and sneak up the ladder you`ll be against the weakest link of the engine everytime you fire it up and when that part breaks, you replace it with a beefier one and than something else folds up so in the end it costs more money than had you went all out in the first place.
I`m not trying to say you can`t do this, and I`m not trying to put you down or discourage the idea. All I`m saying is be realistic. In the end your talking a ton of money.
