You're going to struggle to get 700hp out of a single turbo car for the street and keep it pleasant to drive, it'll have to have a big laggy turbo, or be running really high boost, lumpy race cams etc.... And reliability will suffer.

What is all that power for? High speed runs, 1/4 mile runs, standing mile stuff? It will all make a difference to what you do, a 'reliable' 700hp engine is a different animal to a traffic light (10 second chassis dyno) tyre shredder. If it has to deal with sustained 700hp then you'll need a serious intercooler, lots of work on the case, shuffle pinning etc..... And if it's long high speed runs you are doing then even gearbox cooling would be a good idea.
What RPM range is the engine going to be built for?
