I have a 2021 GT500 been reading about engine tuning. What do you do to these cars and how to make them 900+ HP. Not that it needs just curious

Porter blower, intake, throttle body, injectors, e85, and probably a little smaller pulley.
You'll want to upgrade intercooler brick too.

If I wanted to add power like that, I’d contact a reputable tuner like PBD, Lund or VMP and ask them what I needed.

Here is the list of stuff I did. Very happy with the build and the list generally follows a pretty repeatable itemization of what many others have found success with. It is far from cheap (around $21K with labor and everything). Results are great--about 1 full second off my quarter time and stupid fast.

Hopefully the list if helpful. It doesn't mean you have to do everything below, but for my needs, I wanted to get the best possible parts and configurations, while not sparing any expense. I love the results in terms of looks, sound, and of course power.

Power:
980whp / 750 torque

Please note I'm in Denver and DA is 8000, so times are roughly 1 second slower than sea level. We can barely breath up here.

Awesome mods. Any suggestions where to purchase the parts.
I got some through my builder (Peterson Performance in Colorado Springs, CO), some from Palm Beach Dyno, and some from Beefcake Racing. Any of the reputable places will be great. PBD is very good at helping you out and answering questions. I've also ordered from several other online places-all have been good experiences.
