Wanted some feedback and suggestions on this:
My 71 El has an automatic with a 350, and I'd like to switch over to 5-speed overdrive standard for the gas savings. So.. what 5-speed is suggested? Are the bell housings different from a 4-speed, and would I have any problems with the old linkage? I've done this work before to a Nova and 72 El, but it's been years. I almost forgot, how about the crossmember? Thanks !!

The Tremec 5 speed is a common choice. Someone makes one that bolts to a Chevy motor. There is an article about the swap in the tech referance section of this site.
