A transmission crossmember is almost free as usually you can cut and weld a stock one. The expensive things will be a driveshaft, mounts, clutch, fluids, possible different accessory brackets, different intake manifold, tuning, headers, air ducting and filter, maybe a few random sensors need to be replaced- it adds up fast, BTDT. If you don't want to believe it'll take more DO NOT KEEP A JOURNAL. It'll just make you cry. 2G seems reasonable, assuming you do a good job and most of the work yourself.
