Looking to build a 1000hp STi what block?

I have been looking at block and that for the STi and havent quite found anything that im sure about. Though I was looking here http://www.xcceleration.com/engine-p...ceengines.html

And was wondering what you guys think. If I have an sti would I be able to jsut get some headwork new pistons crankshaft and what not. maybe use the 10,000rmp head from them?
I know Ive got alot to learn but ive got alot of time

I wouldn't deal through Xceleration..

Call Andrew at AndrewTech and order his built 2.8L and a 5 speed DogBox for you STI Transmisison.
Call Ron at AxisPower and get your Heads fully worked over
Call ATP and get a Garrett GT42R Trubo
Call Someone? and get a 100 shot NOS setup for spooling the turbo on your hole shots.
Call Phil at Element Tuning for a Hydra EMS to control it all.

Not to mention all the little odds and ends..

It's going to cost about 30,000 to do it right.

Also call your insurance broker and get more life insurance coverage.

Can the STi driveline even handle that much power? I would think you'd almost snap a driveshaft...

I was under the impression that it was good up until about 800 horsepower so 1000 would definitely be pushing it.
