No such thing as an actual "kit" available for retail purchase. You need to search the site, there's tons of info on the swap though; much of it from myself. You're not too far from me, I may be able to lend a hand.

Clue me in on any correspondence on the matter. I've got a dog 150 hp auto I'm itching to get converted to a manual as well. Trans, driveshaft, pedals, firewall grommets, Engine control module, am I missing anything?

No firewall grommets needed. The computer will also work fine without the auto. Ran mine around for a couple years without issue. Don't forget your hydraulic hoses or cable setup depending on what flavor tranny you end up with.

The transmission cross mount is different, and does not plug into the same spot as the auto. It will be obvious where the new crossmember goes when you're under there.

The speedo/reverse pigtail is nice, and the other end is up under the dash behind the radio otherwise you can splice in the existing wiring.

A transmission tunnel cover is needed if you don't want to cut yours to fit the 5 speed shifter. The cover is only held on with a couple 8mm sheet metal screws and tons of that goop/sealant that factory uses. If you peel up the carpet around the console you'll see what I mean.

Not totally true...you do need the steering column boot/grommet if you are doing the 87-88 hydraulic clutch set-up. The clutch master cylinder mounts there...
