switching to a 5 speed

I have a 1980 Z28 with a muncie M-21 in it know runs great no issues mechanically however 1st gear is a 2.20 ratio with a 3:42 rear end, Im thinking to go either with a Richmond 5 speed or tremec both can be set up to my liking gea wise within 2% I have 447 ft lbs at the wheels with my 406 so they can both handle the power even the mucie has so far.
Does any know through experiance which one might be easier to fit into my Z
any 2nd gen f body would do pontiac or chevrolet i dont mind having to adjust my drive shaft but I"d rather not touch the crossmeber in the end Ill do what it takes
