Eyvind, I don't have all the info, but generally speaking, and frankly, I think it would make more sense to buy a proper 5 cylinder car considering how much they cost these days, and the cost and amount of work required to fit a 5 cylinder motor in a 4 cylinder car.  Why are you consider converting a 4 cyl. car anyway (out of curiosity)?
