Maximum hp output before changing internals?

Vortech 2 supercharged 2003 mustang Gt. Currently at 9lbs and pushing 400 rwhp. Iíve been told Iím playing with fire. I donít even gun this car cause Iím scared to itíll blow and because itís the only thing keeping me happy these days. I absolutely adore this car. Itís only got 87,000km. Garage kept etc etc. Iíd love to push this beauty to 600 and beyond. Why? I honestly have no idea. I donít race. I donít take it to the track. I think itís just the potential power that these beauties can produce with a forged short block internals. Other then the block, rods, pistons, what else should I change to make this car absolutely fail safe? Thanks for advice.

Thanks for information. I was looking at this block a couple weeks ago as well. Curious to see how much total installation would be?

Depends on the shop I suppose. Iíd guess around 10-12 hours of labor.
