Ls/sc Build Need Help

So I am in the process of a sc build for my ls.
it's a 2007 ls with 60k miles
as of right now I have a CAI, header, DP, exhaust
i know i need to upgrade the pistons, connecting rods, crankshaft, bearings, and fuel system before i even buy the SC kit but i need to know where I can find it and and hopefully not cost too much if anyone could help with that
i'll probably need to upgrade my transmission also and would like to know where i can find that as well
if there is anything that I am missing please let me know and thank you in advanced

You dont need a new crank. How much power are you looking to make? If you plan to build your engine, I would not waste my money on a supercharger

Are you an auto or a manual?

it's a manual (wouldn't want to spend so much money on a car if it was an auto)
i'm trying to get a nice 290 to 320 hp range, somewhere around there is what i want

You wont reasonably get that going SC. It's possible, but it will take a lot more cash that just slapping a snail on there!

but when i was looking at the turbo kits from zzp it was soo much more expensive than the supercharger kit

Gotta pay to play dude. Pointless to spend thousands of dollars on building your motor to slap a $1000 supercharger kit on there and wield 240hp
