    im pretty much sure you wont get better fuel economy with the 6 speed and your car will drive bad.
    If you want the get the 6 speed than you have the get the correct diff ratio with it...and even, your fuel economy wont improve considering also that this setup will cost you a lot of money.
    stay with a 5 speed....my advice
