Swapping the auto for a 5 speed. Opinions wanted.

Wife has a 190e 16V with an auto. The trans shifts good, but leaks a bit. The car really deserves a 5 speed, the way most were delivered.

All 5 speed 16V's came with the Getrag trans with the direct drive fifth gear.

Is it possible to use the regular 190e trans with an overdrive fifth? Would the ratios be that far off? It would be nice to have the overdrive on the highway. Are all of the 190e gas and diesel manual trans the same?

Curious.
