Hiya,

You can probably fit a longer geared 'box, but you might lose some torques along the way, making it harder for you to even get to 170kmh.

Or in theory add a 6th gear

I wouldn't know which box you'd have to install .. but do you REALLY wanna go through all that effort and expense for maybe 10-15kmh extra? How often do you drive at 175kmh?

Rather don't do it buddy
Not worth the effort vs. a few extra km's/h (which is not guaranteed as well)
