Default Transmission choices

Hello,
I am in the process of enjoying a 46 Plymouth rat built several years ago.
At one time I swapped the 3.0:1 rear for its current 3.55:1 .
Running a Tci turbo 400, powered by a mild 10:1, Ď58 Chrysler Hemi.
Car goes well, really burns the tires. On the highway itís just crummy, really got to spin the motor just to go 60 mph.
So Now Iím wanting for a manual transmission, 5 speed would be good, 6 speed could be awesome.
Are there any salvage yard later model choices?
A Tremec would be great and handle the abuse, but itís 3600 bucks without the bell housing , clutch, pp, and slave cylinder. (Or adapter for that matter)
Any solid choices, or am I going back to 3.0:1?
