Hyabusa conversion = seriously big money
Any engine conversion = seriously big money

Think about it. What's the difference between a Hyabusa conversion and say a Honda Hurricane conversion? About $1000 bucks -- just the cost difference for the donor engine == everything else requires the same work (all custom).

Your best bet for the money, is still probably to buy a stock one and drop a turbo on it, unless you can do most of the work yourself and you are willing to spend a few thousand hours of labor into one! See Barney's Toyota conversion, or go to the sponsers link for Sinister Sand Sports and check out what is envolved... not a little.
