A 5s board will not work in a 5 body. The screw layouts are different as well as all of the flex cables.

he is right but with the right tools you could replace the processor in your iPhone 5 with the iPhone 6 processor and believe me it will me a lot more faster every way possible and thing is that you need skills to pull that successfully without breaking your phone I did it myself and I gotta say that not only its faster now but also it feels amazing knowing that you've got the right skills to pull something like that off.

This is most likely not possible or true. Do not attempt this. You need BGA rework skills. Also, an A8 processor has a different pin layout than an A6. So no.

Did You try to do that?

I don't have to try. An A8 would not fit where an A5/6/7 goes. Even if you could make it fit there, the newer processor uses a different instruction set. It wouldn't work.
