Depends on what company you go with, I was pricing out some transmissions with Billet input and output shaft and it was around $5200.

2000 F-250
4x4 ECSB
4" DP - 5" Back - 8" Black miter
K&N Intake
Tony Wildman 6pos Chip
Stewart Warner Maximum Boost, Trans, Pyro
35" BFG KM MT's
Jensen 7" Flip out DVD/CD
10" Rockford Fosgate Subwoofer
2400w Rockford Fosgate Amp

Soon to come -
4"-6" Lift
HID's
05+Front end Conversion
Train Horns

Call Goerend Brothers, DTT, or Sunsoast. They will all build you what you need. I prefer Goerend for their price and warranty.

you'll want a 47rh so 94-96 i believe. If you go with a 47re you will run into all kinds of problems with electronics. As far as price goes those guys are pretty much spot on, you will also have to include a core charge since you don't have a core to return, so that'll be another 600-1000 dollars, and then maybe shipping.

Suncoast wants 5200 plus a converter.
DTT is roughly 5200 with a converter,
Goerends I'm not sure about.

yeah it isn't a cheap conversion, You might be able to find a short shift kit for you transmission, my buddy's brother had one in his 6spd and was runnin 13.2's with it, not bad at all for a manual.
