about 10-15k will be in just the transaxle alone
3-6k in a mercedes 12
500-1k BMW 12
1500-5k in engine management and tuning
kit 3000-6000
chassis 5k
wheels and tires 5-10k
brakes 3-5k
wiring 1k
upholsery sky is the limit
then go up from there when you start adding OE parts

Now the real cost
ASSEMBLY
YOU = free-ish
BUILDER = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ PLLUS a few more $$$$ just in case

Not to mentin the time required, usually twice what you expect

500Hp from a brand new aluminum V8 will cost you $4,000 with a 300,000 mile factory warranty. 500HP from any V12 will cost at least five times that, I could see even ten times that by the time you figure headers and all else.
