+1, it's probably expensive and time consuming, why do you want to do that anyways?

its not worth it to go to the 5 lug balts have. we have 5x110 which is a pain in the a** to find. stick with the 4x100 and you have a lot more options. if you want to do the swap, you'll need to find a donor car with the 5 lug(so either ss or lt2) and from there it depends which one you find(ss has discs, lt2 has drums). in the end its gonna be much easier to stick with the 4 lug

The only benefit with going 5-lug is really bigger SS front brakes...

For front, you'll need wheel hubs, calipers, new pads and bigger rotors... for rear you'll need a 5 lug drums, not that hard to find... if you want disks in the back you'll need the whole rear SS axle setup

The SS brakes are no more than 1.3 inches bigger stock.

I think before we can answer this question properly we need to know your intentions.
