C41 Processing FAQ/howto; chemistry options are listed near the bottom. Sure you can homebrew or use the wrong chemistry (wtf, why!?) but I would suggest that you use the proper chemistry for your first attempt so that you at least eliminate the chemistry as a source of error. Ag Photographic will ship you a Fuji or Rollei kit and it will work perfectly.
The Fuji kit for example has enough developer chemistry to do 80 rolls (makes it well under $2/roll including shipping for chemistry) and enough bleach/fix for 160 to 240 rolls. I would suggest starting with the kit and once you run it out, consider buying more developer to use with your existing bleach/fix. Bleach is the most expensive part but has a much greater capacity than the developer, so you definitely want to keep that from the kit.
Vanbar's prices are pretty crazy-high compared to the international market.
