THE START. E85 1000hp 12c build

Hey guys! So after owning this car for three years I’m bored and decided to build it and coming from building other cars figured I’d do this with out any over priced kit or fancy $8k exhaust and to do it the tuner way with guys that build 1500whp 7sec imports with out a supercar price tag with the help from the 12c homies XPRD and ima2rn. So here is list and money spent thus far.
Money spent to date
Wiestec Turbos $5000 w
eistec BETA 12c vta valve $300
1300cc Injectors and CLIPS $2070
Xprd BETA fuel rail $1000
Custom Raw Performace 3.5in Exhaust/downpipes and Labor $2000
K&n Intakes $110
Exhaust Heat wrap $50

Money still to be spent
Tuning $2000-3500
Labor $2000
Dyno time $500

Extras
Darwin pro carbon wing $1100 (optional)
ImA2nr headlight fix $50 (optional)

More pics to come

PIC UPDATE!

So today is a good day, turbos are in the 3.5 inch down pipes have started. We cut the strange mclaren flange off stock downpipes and tig welded them to the 3.5 in pipes and checked space to make sure we had enough room for engine movement under a load and well went well. See pics attached.

ALSO FOUND OUT today MY BABY TO BE IS A GIRL !!!! God is good.

Cool project. Not to be a buzzkill but its my understanding the 12c block is only good for 850hp? Hope i'm wrong on that. Keep the pics coming!

What I mean is, McLaren put a 3.8 on a bench and kept cranking the boost to see where the limits are. At (whatever the boost level was I cant recall) the motor grenaded, and they backed the number to 850HP.
