You'll be hardpressed to find something. Inductance and voltage are
extreme. Without tackling MOT's or similar, then maybe just look for
unwound bolt up IE cores to easily set an air gap without hacking at the
core. Wind the inductors yourself. This is probably the best method as
you can build in the current and voltage. Similar to what Richie Burnett
did with his homebrew ballast.
