That's just what buschur told him so I am just relaying info. I don't claim to be an expert on the enemy (evos).

To the OP, if you are gunning for an Evo, stick with the 5spd. I would look for an SSL SE, or the version with the sunroof.
He actually did a 5spd conversion with the finish in 4th option. That way you can refrain from shifting to 5th when you are running like a 9 second quarter mile.
