Can you swap a five speed 01 cobra for a 6 speed?

I have a 01 cobra and the main reason I want to swap is because I think the synchros are bad. When I down shift it grinds pretty bad mostly from fifth to fourth but in the other gears as well. I figured it would just be better to get a whole new 6 speed tranny since its going to be expensive to fix regardless. I'm looking to buy the tremec t56 6 speed from American muscle. Is it possible to do the swap or would there be other things I need to swap out as well to make it work?

Your grinding is most probably caused by worn out syncros or possibly even a clutch that is not fully releasing. Is it harder than usual to get in gear from neutral with the clutch fully pressed in? My experience with bad syncros is that they don't all go at once and it was the higher gears first. Bad clutch release will effect all gears. Do much power shifting??
