Default OT:Boosting w/a 5 or 6 speed

Would it not benefit to have a 6 speed as opposed to a 5 speed so that you have an extra gear and don't run out?...
I thinking this because I read an article about the new RSX-S and it mentioned that the new 6-speed was the same size as the old 5 speed. Would it not be a good investment?...

I am pretty sure the RSX motor spins the other direction... so unless you want to go really fast in reverse...

Anyways.. how many people here actually get through 5th gear in the 1/4? That would be a 162mph trap speed. 6th gear on the RSX (and S2K) is just a longer gear to reduce the RPMs at highway speeds.

Also, the RSX uses a cable shifter (not linkage like the G3 integra).
