    You should talk with said shop about their recommendation and of they are willing to take on the install. As another member said, be prepared to spend some $$ on labor if they have to end up fabbing something or sourcing parts.

    The only way I see to save money on a custom kit is to buy used and DIY the install.

    Keep in mind that the manifold you use will affect downpipe and intercooler fitment. This is why using a kit can be a benefit. You will at least need a "hot parts" kit to get started.

    yea, cutting corners and budgeting isn't the way to go when force inducting a car (I know from personal experience when I was younger). You gotta pay to play. Even my supercharger build has me pushing close to 8k+ right now. You have to consider all the other things too: clutch, injectors, aftermarket ECU, tune, fuel pump, fuel return system, tires, etc. It ain't cheap. A kit gives you a baseline and proven system.
