Conversion parts with the tranny will run you about $600 from the forums.
Keep in mind that you may be also able to sell your old parts, but not for the same price, most likely.

I, too, mentioned what is needed and some other info for a potential buyer in my thread:

Hope that helps.

Well its going to be some work.Im sure once your done it will be worth it.I have a stick and love it to death.If your ride is in as good condition as you say I wouldnt sell it/trade it cause it may take a while to find one that meets your standards compared to the other.Take the time and deal with the conversion.I see Suprra_Girl posted some good information (via Tony!) that you can use.You ready for all that ?

I am about to buy a 1JZ-GTE VVTI from tigerjapanese.com; the motor came from an automatic, and I wondered if that would create any complications with fitting it to a '88 turbo 5 speed.

You will have to get a 1jz bell housing. You also might have to cut a little piece out were the shifter is because it might sit a bit to far back.

Coolness. Thank you for the help sorry but i also had another question for anybody out there. I'm getting the VVT-I to improve overall torque. low and high. I was wondering if having high-flowing heads lowers the low-end torque and raising high-end? I know that's silly to ask, but it happens go big with power 'turbos, cams, compression,connecting rods, etc'; and sometimes science just works weird.
