I was interpreting it as a comparison between a 4.2 car converted to a 5spd versus a 3.6 5-speed converted to 4.2.
Maybe I misinterpreted. Give the above, I would think there'd be no difference really.

You not only have to account for the final drive but also the torque
multiplication in each gear, the 5 spd wins hands down in first and second.
Lower friction loss
Lower rotating mass
