I have run both a 96 trans and a sonett trans in my sonett. No difference except for a few rpms which I hardly noticed. The shorter 96 trans gears make the 1st and 2nd gear acceleration a hair faster. A hair, and I'd say the difference is negligible. I dont even know if the mileage difference would be noticeable. I'd said rebuild em both and keep one. Mark Ashcraft sold me a synchronizer for mine.
The only thing I would advise you to keep an eye out for is the early smooth-cased transmissions. They aren't as sturdy as the later ribbed-cased transmissions.
