$15k easy...not sure about everyone else that has forced induction but plan on spending some money on your transmission. Either upgrades or a built unit. My stocker just lasted 1 yr before gernading.

Yeah I plan on doing the transmission as basically the first thing, so I can get that out of the way. You have a paramount performance right? I looked at their site and if I was looking at the right thing, it's only 3k for the upgraded tranny, which aint bad at all because if I'm not mistaken a regular replacement tranny is also 3k.

Call Builder Bill at Paramount and let him know what you're working on. They have a couple different options. The street rod tranny is $2999 but the higher performance one with new clutches and modified VB is $3499. They also have a performance converter for $900 that is bad ass and they suggest using their converter with their tranny. I had Edge and they said if the converter caused the tranny to fail then it would void the tranny warranty.

Alright thanks for the info. Prices don't seem too bad for a built up transmission.
