    How can I get an ECOTEC motor making 1000+ hp and 9700 rpms? Cost? Goal 6-800 hp

    I am thinking about buying a turbocharged ecotec motor for my kit car, because I recently heard about what they can do. According to many articles and posts the crazy little motors can make over 1400 hp and rev to 10000 rpms? I don't need that much power, but I'd love to see those revs and a decent amount of power. Is there somewhere I can get a motor and turbo built to make/take this kind of power and revs? It said it was a 2.0 turbocharged ECOTEC, am I looking for an LNF or a different motor? If I can't buy a pre-built motor, Is there somewhere I can get a kit to build it up, a turbo kit, the injectors, or parts for this build? Is there a recommended tuner(s) to get the job done? What kind of money would I be looking at If I were to want like 600-800 hp and a 9700 rpm redline (approximately)? THANKS!!!
