    The Final Drive is the same...


    5th in the 5 Speed is the same ratio (Speed/RPM) as 6th in the 6 Speed..

    So what the hell are you going to get out of this?

    hes going from an auto to a manual, but i gotta agree, why the 6 speed instead of the 5 speed, unless he plans on boosting, then the 6 speed is stronger
