the chips go up to 32mbit with 50mhz to 75/85mhz and 8 pins, but i wasn't able 
to find them in europe until now. 64mbit are only available with 16 pins.

farnell has an sst chip with right pin position, speed (50mhz) and 16mb in its 
store. which cost's about 3€.
farnell has also sockels for that chips in his store, but they cost much more. 
(about 22€).

i've an second MX25L4005 here, if someone would like to have it, i can send 
it. (the chip will be for free, and shipping costs maybe to, depends on how 
much this will be.)
