you could drop in the auto rear end... that would make the gears a lot taller! and would probably give you top speed in fifth. Not sure what the acceleration would do...
(also not sure if this is possible/feasible)

Stock manual at 6200rpm
1st 52.8
2nd 78.9
3rd 108.1
4th 140.5
5th 175.6
6th 223.0
reverse 48.4
(final drive ratio is 3.73)

with auto rear end:
1st 61.0
2nd 91.1
3rd 124.8
4th 162.2
5th 202.8
6th 257.5
reverse 55.9
(final drive ratio is 3.23)
