Default Bravo One service interval? How much power

Going to buy a large single. Looking at PQ 280s and Bajas. Most that I'm looking at have Bravo One's. What's the rebuild interval on one of these with a 496HO? What parts are replaced and how much does the service typically cost? Budgetary numbers only please.

Also, one boat has a built 502 that puts out HP525 power with 540hp and 611lbs at the crank. It still spins a stock Bravo One. Can it handle it?

My drive before it was rebuilt by Doller Offshore had around 700hours on it. I have a built Gellner Powered 454 around 550hp. Doller Inspected the drive and said that it was pretty spotless inside.
