Fiat Siena 1.7TD

Hi, can anyone please give me advise about which other models' gearboxes are interchangeable with the Siena/Palio models?

I have been advised before to leave the Siena's gearbox as is. For those not knowing... it's a Palio with a boot.

I agree with the advise, but the problem is that I do a lot of long distance travelling and at 75mph the car idles at 3500rpm.

If I can find a gearbox with a "longer" 4th and 5th gear that fits the Siena/Palio model's engine, I would be over the moon.

Can anyone give advise please?

Kind regards
