Not only are you asking a question that's been asked / answered a gazillion times, but you're in the wrong section.

Read the stickies.

Get soft transmission mounts and a stock clutch pressure plate to ease torque feed into the transmission. Also don't be too aggressive when shifting and even the 5MT will hold up fine.

If you're not willing to do the above get a 6MT. You only need the shift linkage and a 60mm shortened propeller shaft.

I was never nice to my 5-speeds but I have yet to break a single one. I would always just let the clutch take all of the abuse, sure it stinks and overheats and you change them often, but I always figure it is cheaper than buying new transmissions, or you could just drive nice, or get a STi 6-speed like you said before. In regards to what one specifically, I am not sure, sorry I am no help haha.
