Does anyone know what is the maximum horsepower I can get with twin turbos and E85 and all the matching parts without blowing it up?

You're going to have to be more specific, the stock crank supposedly can handle 1000hp, mainly because it will flex before it snaps.

1,500hp-1,800hp with Callies DragonSlayer crank, Callies H-beam rods, JE pistons, AFR 230cc (2.02/1.60), Brian Tooley springs, Scorpion 1.6 RR, and Custom Tick turbo cam.

Crank and block are good for that much. Not sure about those rods and Pistons though. I think those both go around the 1200mark
Might want to look into the ultra-billet rods for that goal.

I wouldn't feel comfortable pushing a stock block to that power level. Check out Josh's car...allout06 on LS1Tech. Similar build to what you're looking to do. I think he made around 1100 rwhp through a 4L80

This. Also you have to think with a stock iron block you are putting alot of side load on that stroked crank so it's going to crack the cylinder walls at higher power levels. It's the reason why most guys shy away from a stroker setups on turbo applications. I have an iron block as a backup motor and plan on keeping it stock displacement/stroke.

Alright so just upgrade the stock internals to the stock specs and go from there?
