Ok well I am trying to finish gathering everything for my k series swap in my eg and just need a tranny. Just wondering will my car be significantly slower if I have a 5 speed? Can a 5 speed be converted to a 6? The thing is I have a spare 5 speed for my turbo k series crx and wanted to use it if I could thanks for the help

Put the 5spd in and be done with it.... The gearing on a 5spd is better for turbo.
Yes a 5spd can be converted to 6spd..

Either or.. It doesn't matter which car it is going on.. You just wont be shifting so soon. The car will not be significantly slower. MPG will suffer a little bit since the Ep3 has a higher Final.
