Is the 5th valve REALLY necessary? I went throught the same situation did just last year. I got a super 4 valve horn from Dillons. Sure there's a few intonation problems that the 5th valve might correct, but nothing some slide pulling won't fix. Save yourself the bucks and go for 4.
keep in mind that later if you get a 5th valve installed it's usually about $1000.
it's ultimately up to you...i'm sure you'll make the right decision
