I am not sure I understand the point of all this. You can probably get a 930 3.3 motor to easily break the 1000hp mark by a large margin. Its called good theory plus trial and error. Even today's OEM's work that way, but given advances in computing, the error part is reduced.
People running big block V8's could "theoretically" hit the same HP figures as top fuel cars. Is that a discussion worth having...

But, for all of these, you will pay in engine life.

But we can just go on naming more and more expensive and unrealistic (for the street) methods of making power.
very high octane fuel, high CR, optimized valve overlap and timing, valve sizes (heck - 4 valve per cyl, with water cooled heads), huge air to water intercooler, huge turbo, high boost pressure, blue printed engine, stripped car for weight, blah blah blah.
