cost depends on your talent and available metal working tools. V8 without brake upgrades would not be recommended,lol, younger generation, always worried about going fast but not so worried about slowing down, hehe. Be prepared to spend at least $10 000 and 1500 hrs if you are doing all the work yourself as you will find out that EVERYTHING will have to be moved / modified to get all this to work. Don't bother with the stock rear if you are using a V8, your fun time will be short

Remember to have fun

Including engine, transmission and rear end, i have $8300 and somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 hrs into my drive-train alone. I did all of the labor and fabricated a ton of parts myself that i could have bought out but I did spend all of the money saved on a v8r subframe and a foxbody megasquirt.
