400-500HP for a 930 is almost common in the world of normal mods.

Let me throw something else in the mix for you to chew on.
Torque.
What a lot of folks don't understand or don't realize is that the 930 engine is capable of laying down some serious torque at a very low RPM. You can win many street battles that on paper should not have been won because of the long flat torque curve these monsters have.

For example, I know of a certain 911Turbo laying down a little shy of 400RWHP that recently spanked a 500HP Z06 in an agreed upon drag race, even after a boggled shift. 400+ ft/lb of torque from 2500rpm to redline can bring down a lot of iron!

There are lots of threads that will tell you what it takes to get to 500HP.
Basically it's EFI and headwork in combination with a big turbo and headers. Just be sure to bring a big bag of cash.
