Re: Taller 5th??
In the NA market
86-88 Samurais have the 0.795 fifth gear
88.5-95 Samurais have the 0.865 fifth gear
You'll actually need two gears-the 5th gear and the 5th counter gear. Both are quite easy to get to once you have the tranny out and pulled apart.
Like the others, what I suggest is to find a tranny with the fifth you want, rebuild the sucker (easy if you've go access to a press), and bolt it in.
