I agree. Unless you are going to do a full swap, or go boosted, there really isnt going to be much gain in going 6speed vs. 5speed. And frankly, I would build up the engine first and wory about the tranny last. The Auto can handle much of the power you can build out of the engine after a tune anyway.
