    Ls tranny and GSR tranny are geard differently my fav trannys of choice are b16,CTR, and ITR now to answer your question about the 5th gear there doing that because the LS 5th gear is longer then the GSR 5th gear. your shifting patterns wont change much from a gsr to a ls the ls final drive (5th gear) is longer and better for gas milage

    I do not think you need a LS 5th in a GSR. The GSR 5th isn't that bad. It will rev higher than the LS 5th but nothing owrth the work and time to switch it out in my opinion.

    Now a B16 transmission.....yes 5th gear sucks. 4Krpm's at 70mph in 5th,
