Can I swap a 6spd from a 02 svt to a 5 spd

HELP !!!!! I have an 02 svt ztec with a 6 spd, I have too much gear in 3rd. I race on an oval and 3rd gear is too much and 4th is not enough, The specs say the 6spd trans 3rd gear is a 1.42 and the 3rd gear in a 5 spd is a 1.29
or could i take the 3rd gear out of a 5 spd in install it in my 6 spd, any help is greatly appreciated.

I believe I remember reading that the internals of the transmissions can be swapped but you must use the case that matches your engine.

I dont care about 1st gear, Dont use it, Restarts are in 3rd gear
I have read other post where the 5 spd will be a direct fit, Have to use 5 spd axles and flywheel and clutch

What tire size are u running? One of the local guys did a Svt 6spd swap into his sedan. Im sure u can do the opposite. I thought about this too. Cheaper lsd, 4:10 final drive, cheaper clutches and flywheels when u go to the 5spd.
