Cost for Forged Internals

I am purchasing this vehicle as a project car. I intend to supercharge and then go with a forged bottom end. I don't have experience with rebuilding the internals of an engine. Can someone with experience please give me an idea of what a fair price to have this done would be? Also, I am located near DC, can someone recommend a reputable shop? I would prefer someone close, in case I need the vehicle serviced. Thanks.

From ~$4.2K to ~$6K depending on work and parts, and up from there.

That is a pretty good bet if you are having the work done by somebody. It could get higher due to the removal, and reinstallation of the engine. Also teardown and machine work is not cheap.
