I think you have a lot of fabricating to do. No way the stock rear will take any kind of serious power but you are using a F**d engine so you should be ok there. (Kidding!) Seriously, swap rear ends and strengthen the frame or subframe, modify floorpan probably for transmission room. Rewire the whole car for safety. As far as cost, unless you can do all this safely yourself it will be $$$$. I also think you would need to rebuild the stock front suspension or replace all of it. You need to upgrade brakes when you add more power and weight in any car in my opinion. A fast car that won't stop is scary. Good luck!
