Thats BIG turbo territory.

you wil never have a Nitrous LS or any SB live at that power level. even with Allpro/ET/Edelbrock Victor race heads you will have a hell of a time making 900 on motor. how do you plan on making up the extra 900? not only that but you also have to figure in all the other required components.

98mm turbo on a 400ci motor. That'll handily get it done. You can even use inline heads to save some money.

lmao @ wanting 2000hp out of a nitrous SB engine... Not only are you dreaming, but you just wet the bed. lol I know you have an LSX block, but its still not that simple. VA Speed does a lot of prep work on the LSX blocks before they put 2000hp to them and the only way you will get 1800+hp (and not kill it every other pass) is gonna be with a turbo set up. If your only goal is to run mid-low 5's you can do that with 427-440 cubes, solid roller, big heads (ls7, etp, etc) with two nitrous kits. There are plenty of guys in the mid-high 5's with stock iron blocks and cathedral heads.

depending on the heads, you won't need 427-440" to run 5.0's @ 3000... you need a proper designed combination.

Shit, you only need 400" with the right stroke and bore to run in the low 5's with a good set of heads and two stages @ 3000lbs
3.750 stroke, 4.125 bore, PI intake, solid roller, two foggers and 3000lbs will get you solidly into the 7's with heads that flow 380/260 cfm or better.... people been there, done that with a sbf/ single stage @ 3000lbs on a 275.
