I'd look into a hightech B2, either the 62/14 or maybe a 64/14, they are supposed to be a very drivable and cool really well up top. those Hx40's are known for grenading unless you get something Like a PDR hotrod 40 with the bigger shaft. Twins would be great, but the HighTech turbos are really nice. I'm not such a big fan of Bd products myself.

The super B special is supposed to handle more power, but I don't know anyone that even has one to compare it to.
The new High Tech Series turbos or Super Phat Shaft turbos with the killer wheels sound like some turbos for his setup. They should cool better than a standard HTB or PS series turbo. I would think he would want something in the 64 range. 62/?? is kind of small for his use.
All in all any of these turbos will be better than the hx40 he had.

My vote would be for a HTTB2 64/14. They will handle well over 500hp, while keeping things plenty cool and they will take a lot of abuse.
