twisting the car

Unfortunately I am not too sure where to post this.
I currently have my Uncle's 86 Camaro z-28. I was thinking of putting a 6-71 blower on it but my question is.
Since this car has a t-bar roof, how will the body and frame take the blower?
Will it be able to handle 500 maybe 600 horsepower without worry of having the frame, body or everything else twist and needing to be replace?

I will most likely add a nice rollcage and 5 point harness for safety.

subframe connectors would be a VERY good idea on any vehicle with subframes and more then 300 HP. Otherwise you are preregistering your car's fate at the scrapyard.

Subframe connectors will be there. Besides that you dont see much of a need to close the top off and such?

Subframe connectors are mandatory on that car with the kind of power you are contemplating as well as tying the roll cage into the chassis when you install it..

Camaros are flexy flyers from the factory and need a good bit of stiffening to handle well..JMHO

I know its gonna need some toughening up. The rollcage will be tyed to the frame as well.
