There's a lot more to it than just boosting the crap out of an engine. 30 pounds or psi really doesn't mean anything. You could make that kind of power with more than 30psi or less than 30psi, it all depends on the turbo and parts you're using. You'll need engine internals that will hold up to that kind of power. You'll need to pick the right turbo for your engine, as well as the correct parts that go along with that (intercooler, piping, turbo manifold, injectors, etc). Head work (P&P, valve and combustion chamber work) and aftermarket camshafts & valvetrain will help make that goal easier to obtain. Of course there's also the engine management and a professional tune that you will need to have. I suggest reading up on forums for info on turbochargers as well as checking out a book called "Maximum Boost" by Corky Bell.

That's not going to happen. With that kind of power, you're going to running race gas, not pump gas. And it's also going to need enough fuel, big enough injectors, to move the care reliably. So you may be able to get some semi-decent fuel economy, but it's not going to be close to what you'll get with a stock engine. 500whp with a daily driver car also isn't a good idea. I'm not saying it can't be done, but it's certainly not a good idea, that is a LOT of power. And for that kind of power, you're better off piecing together your own kit, rather than buying a premade one.
Check out the http://www.honda-tech.com forced induction forum.
And go to your local book store and buy Maximum Boost, and read the entire thing. Trust me, this book will inform you on every thing you'll need and what things to look for, before attempting something that will end up being too much to handle. Heck, it you search around enough, you can find the entire book in .pdf form.
