I think the 1.2 16v ones. Pretty sure these will lower the gearing, so it's not necessarily the "go faster" tweak you may assume. Of Punto linkeages, I know nothing.

i think a 6 speed box on such a little engine is a waste of time and hand movements and a fashion statement now passed
keep to a good 5 box

If you find a good six speed box get the lever and linkage to go with it. But as said its pretty pointless - unless the engine is souped up with fast cams and a narrow power band.
