Default hx vs vx tranny

i have a full hx swap in my car right now. but i also have a vx tranny in the garage. numerically lower final drive in the vx so rpms less on highway. my cx got better mileage in 4th than 5th. gears were too long. but i didnt know if my hx motor would have better luck pulling itself around. but do you think i could get better mileage with the vx tranny.
