Default NEED help with new del sol

Hi guys
this is my first post ( i don't know a lot bout cars)
So I bought a 93 del sol. I'm looking to make it a lot faster ( bc its slow as ****) its automatic> is it expensive to convert it to manual? what would be the best jdm engine to put in it?
Thanks

costs around 500-800 bucks to convert if you do it yourself.

There is no "best engine". Do a search. Why does it have to be JDM?

only 500$? I thought it was an expensive job? by "best" i meant what is going to give me the most bang for my buck?

500-800 i said
500 if you get great deals, 800 if you don't know how to shop

best bang for your buck is relative. what are your goals?


once again, why only JDM?
