What capacitors should I use for an ac tesla coil? Answered

I have just finnished my tesla coil build and I had been using a dc flyback to power it.  Now I have a dual mot set up and it outputs ac. To rectify it would cost over $300, so I need to find caps with a good ac raiting. Does anyone know where to buy these?

Look for AC motor, starting AC capacitors...

Voltage rating?
Price range?
Cheapest might be a stack of capacitors as used for induction cooktops....
