Default Difference between NA and NB 5 speeds

I know theres some small wiring changes you have to make to put a 6 speed in an NA for reverse lights and what not. Not really sure on the specifics of it. Does anyone know if you have to do the same thing for NB 5 speeds or are they the exact same trans as NA 5 speeds?

Maybe I'm failsauce but I searched and found nothing.

the nb 5 speeds are just like the nb 6 speeds as far as wiring/sensors. so you'd do the same

Mechanically and strength-wise, are they (NA/NB 5-speed) any different?
