I'll keep this short, I want to make a pitch shift, I wanna be able to switch it down an octave in whole step increments, How doable is it?

I think you need to be a computer engineer.

I found a couple kits, but for the most part they just don't go down low enough. The reason I wanna build it though is because I joined a deathcore band (I'm broke, don't judge me) and I really like the feel and sound of this .10-.60 set in E standard, and I'd like to set it up to play with these strings in this tuning, but I don't want to have to worry about fret buzz when I tune back down to play, and our other guitarist insists that we play in Drop G (which I ****ing hate BTW) but our other guitarist and I both hate the tuning so we're gonna try to get the tuning to a tolerable level hopefully.

It would be a good idea to see if anywhere near you stocks the commercially available drop tune pedals like Morpheus or even a Digitech whammy. Give them a try and see if you like the sound. A lot of pitch shift effects sound a bit too synthetic.

Honestly your best bet is to see if you can find a cheap guitar to string up with the bottom 6 from an 8 string set.
Well, I'm hopefully getting a seven string, I just don't have much money on tap. I still need a couple cabs, a new set of tubes, and a decent speaker cable, all of that is probably gonna run me another $500 or so, before I can get the seven string I want.

The pitch shift in the Whammy pedal sounds like fart when you play two or more notes together.

I don't know if all pitch shifting pedals are like that.
I'm not sure, but I don't think you can make a pitch shifter with analogue circuity. The digitech whammy is all digital anyway.

It might be cheaper just to buy one.
Was lacking a decent sig. Still is.
I'm not even sure you can build an analogue pitch shifter pedal. Honestly, the prices that those sort of pedals go for, you'd be better off buying a new guitar anyway. They really don't sound that realistic, especially when you're going down as far as an octave. You can get some decent 7-string guitars for not much money these days.

^I suspect you are correct due to the fact that pitch shifters use algorithms to double the length of the signal, then play it at double the speed(assuming an upward shift of double the wavelength), Which I suspect would be difficult(read: impossible) to do that with analogue circuitry.
I did find a decent looking 7 string for $200 on rondo, mahogany body and grover tuners, seems rather nice. The only thing that worries me is the LFR, however should I find it insufficient a block of wood will make a good substitute for the springs.
