1000HP Daily Driver... Possible?

I have an 08 6.4L and I currently have a pretty good list of what I am looking to get done just wanted to ask around and see if my goal of a 4 digit HP number and still be able to drive the truck on a daily basis is realistic or not. Any input would be much appreciated.

This is the build list I have pretty much made up so far...

S475 Race Single Turbo Kit
4R100 Built Trans
100% Injector Nozzles
Dual Fueler Kit
ARP Head Studs
Stage 2 Low Pressure Fuel System
Stage 2 Ported Fuel Rails
Billet Cam with Solid Lifters
EDE Ported Heads with Oversized Valves and Stage 3 Valvetrain
Chromoly Pushrods
Billet Flexplate SFI

I personally would run compounds on a daily driven high horsepower truck, but that's just me. It's possible to daily drive a truck making big power though. Erik Clausen (that won the Diesel Power Challenge) daily drives his truck. It's about an 850 HP on fuel truck and can be sprayed over 1,000 HP. Shone Patel (in the DPC last year) daily drives his 1,000 HP fuel only 6.4. Craig Briggs up at Maryland Performance Diesel daily drives his 1,000 HP 6.4. There are plenty of guys daily driving 800-1,000 HP 6.4's with little to no problems. With a build that extensive, however, you have to expect that the truck won't be problem free.
