Default need help with SJ40

Hi was wondering if someone could give me with some info on SJ40 drive trains. Short story is I recently bought a 1982 SJ40 F10A 4 speed hardtop for 500 bucks. After a week it sounded like a diesel so i stripped it, new pistons, rebuild kit (gudgeon pin worn). So iv since decided to strip the body back for rust repair (wow it amazing what you can find when you start looking). While its all stripped back iv got to thinking about gearbox upgrades. My question is can the F10 pull a 5th gear? If so is there a gearbox out there i can find for a reasonably straight forward swap? Is a longer diff a better option just for a bit more speed with out killing it again? Just bought a later model Drover shell for the panels and the guy suggested looking into the early celica 5 speeds, says they where a direct sway? Any ideas?
Thanks for your help guys.
