Hahaha! Yes yes, it was a very good explanation.

I didn't have a 5-speed to compare with but my gut instinct is that the 5-speed may have a slightly deeper reach on the input shaft of the transmission. I know that the pilot bearing sits inside that recess on the crankshaft and the flywheel bolts to the crankshaft. Logically i don't think it would work because the 6-speed would be fitting into the pilot bearing further outside the crankshaft at the flywheel.
