Default SC400 manual swap kits?

So I just got my hands on a 95 Black SC400, everything is great about it. Only has just over 97k miles, and the previous owner has taken care of this car. (It also has a black interior which I fell in love with!!!) anyways i love almost everything about this car (Except for how much gas it guzzles) but man I just need that feeling of a manual transmission. Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a Swap kit for a decent price I am still a high school student so it's hard to the money for things haha.

This looks to be a way nicer kit than previous set ups. My buddy's 1UZ/W58 corolla uses that awful hydro-throw out bearing as opposed to a true slave. It's torture to drive!

watch out on alot of those kits they want you to remove the starter ring gear from the auto flexplate and have it welded to their flywheel.
There are companies that make a proper flywheel with the ring gear instead.
