You definitely need a car lift.

I assisted my dads mecanic when he got his tranny swapped.

He had to take out the entire exhaust pipe...then jam his hand in there to unscrew this bolt (ya should of heard this guy curse at this bolt..it looked hard)..

then take out the tranny...of course there were other steps which i'm not sure of ...

but thats basically the gist of it.

Dude I recommend you research this deeply or have a professional install it for you, no offense but you seem a little down witted on the mechanical end, but what do I know... You can pick up a Haynes or Bentley manual to assist you to some degree... Good Luck
From what I know you cannot change the synchro gear to anything else due to the fact it would throw off all the other gears. If your engine sounds like its ganna blow in a overdrive 5 speed gearbox then there is a problem, the swap from the 4 speed to the 5 speed is ment to get rid of the high RPM's at highway speeds.

you can probably just buy a rear differential with a slightly taller ratio to get your highway rpms down, of course it'll take away a little acceleration
