A guess:

Heads/valve gear to support that level of hp: $3000-3500, plus porting/labor costs
An Eliminator or Ford Racing block to reliably keep it together: $2000-$2500
Roller camshaft/valvetrain, & assorted pieces like stud girdles:$1200
Various block pieces/hardware/misc.: $800
Carburetors:$1800 up
Intake: $600 up for sheetmetal tunnel ram
Oil system: $1000
Custom headers: $1000 for someone else to fabricate them
At LEAST $6000 or more for machine work & engine shop labor to build it
$1000 for all the crap I've forgotten right now

A 6-71 blower kit: difficult to say, but about $3500 for one that fits stock heads; you will need to use C-460s, EX514s, or better, & therefore a custom manifold is required

Transmission/converter that will hold together: $1800 or more
Rear axle: $1200 + labor
Chassis mods, tires, wheels, etc. etc. etc.
