Talk to John at Lab22.

OS Gikken will custom build a set up for you. I would go that way. But your half shafts will eventually shatter. I broke two with only 300rwhp.
Drive Shaft shop will rebuild your half shafts to handle 1000RWHP.

Nothing on your BMW is gonna stand up to repeated wot applications from a 1000hp engine. Not the engine, not the clutch, not the driveshaft, not the differential, not the subframe. Why do you think top fuelers rebuild their motors after about three minutes of operation. I know....been there.
