mate 5 speed all the way! forget cam and head packages, the conversion is easily the best mod you can do without going forced induction!

Get the 5-speed ... and then get theh cam dialled in for the manual (ask ReGiE .... it makes a hell of a difference).

Also stall converters in autos rob power anyway ... so going to manual will give you more usuable power ... and better in-gear driveability too.
