Probably around 4k for a used motor and around 6500-6700 for a new crate engine. Plus 1500 for controls pack, and you will also need a new driveshaft. Aluminator would cost you about 8500.
And as soccer said, an aluminator with twin turbo setup is going to make way more safe power than a 'stock' 5.8 motor with either a supercharger/twin turbo. Heck people have easily achieved 4 digit HP with an aluminator..something which is not practically feasible with a 5.8 without swapping out its internals.
Ps: I'm just tossing another coin out there, you don't have to like it if you don't want to lol. Check out chevy's LS3 376 crate engine (480hp/475 TQ or the 500+ hp version of it) if your plans is just to stay all motor and if you don't care what 'brand' is making power under your hood. It will cost you about 6700 for a crate engine, with all necessary electronics. However, I'm not entirely sure what else would be needed to make it work. You have to dig up info on it.
