NEED INPUT! SHOOTING FOR 500-600 HP!

Doing research for my roomate. He had a guy come into the shop and wants him to build a 2002 7.3L. Hes giving him free range and a $20,000-30,000 build budget. They are going to deliver the truck on the 23rd and he has 3 months for the job. The customer wants reliability (not a daily driver though) and is shooting for 500+hp range. This will be his first build on a 7.3l to this extreme. I have a 2001 7. 3l so I'm a little more familiar with them, so he asked for help w/research. I need suggestions for a turbo (twin or single), injectors, HPOP, intercooler, Fuel upgrades, tunig, & any other suggestions. The block will need to be bored, i do know we will need to get rid of the PMR, so Forged or Billet? Headwork any suggestions? I'm guessing forged pushrods & heavy valve springs for sure. A chassy dyno and engine dyno are available, to test the end result. Any input would be appreciated. I will update later on how the project goes. You might even see it in diesel power magazine, that is one of the goals also. Thanks ahead of time.

Isn't there a sticky on here about power levels? Over on psn.com I think they might have a write up on a 500hp 7.3. All power to you but trying to build a 7.3 like that just isn't worth it
