I had about $5000 into it. That is buying all top of the line parts. It could be done cheaper, but that's up to you. I am very happy with the adapters and wiring harness from Novak. I know there are others who will do it cheaper.
Getting the motor, trans, and ECU for a good price is critical. I paid $1500 for everything out of a wrecked out 2004 truck. Make sure you get the wiring harness and gas pedal assemblies!
After you get all that horse power, you're going to need better axles. I babied my stock ones for about year before doing a D44 swap with ARB lockers. Another $3500!
I have to say, it was worth every penny!
