5 Speed of 4 Speed?

My 3 spd auto tranny is on its way out majorly!!.

ATM i've got two tranny's in mind a 5 spd or 4 spd

What would be the better option for say a quicker take off or do both have the same ratio?

Obviuosly i need to change tailsaft pedal box etc for these manuals...

The other alternative is to just buy a reco 3 spd!

What do u pples recommend?
