Your car looks great BTW, good luck with your build!
That is going to be a fun ride. We worked on this in pieces and did a lot of non conventional stuff including using the CTS-V which no one wants due to shifter placement and the guibo so our engine including cam, upgraded heads, hd chain and gear, and all new gaskets for the miata was around $850 and the transmission was $1300
The rear end was $220 and the custom axles $245 and we pulled alot of the stuff ourselves at local junkyards.
