u can use a 5 speed from a 280z or 280zx.
u can use what ever u want if u want to fabrocate a bellhousing for it. but it woudn't be worth it. besides it's not how many gears. it's how it's geared

5th. is mainle for for Ist. use. The other 4 are same as 4spd.
If most of your driving is city 5th is not much use.
For racing 4th. is good for 90+, very little gain in 5th.
I you have a daily use at highway spds.[ 55+ ] a 5spd. will help gas milage, but it will take a lot of gas saving [ 2 to 3 mi/gl. at 55+ ] to pay for the change. Just my .02
