This kit is designed to turn the 10th Gen Civic's OEM shifter into a finely tuned piece of machinery. The short throw adapter and rocker upgrade help to reduce both gear throw (foward/back motion) and gate spacing (left/right motion) while stiffening up gear engagement and lateral feel. The shift cable bushings and shifter base bushings help to remove unwanted compliance from OEM rubber bushings to help remove flex while improving tactile feel. The upgraded centering spring helps to make quicken centering action for a snappier feel while removing unwanted lateral play while in gear or in neutral. Consider adding optional shift knobs or shift boot collars to further customize the feel or style of your shifter. Add the interior panel removal tools as affordable protection against damaging interior panels during installation.
Note that non-Si trims will require use of one of our 1924 shift boot collars to hold the shift boot up when using an aftermarket knob like our ESCO or ESCO-T6 design.
Bundle and save! If you're in search of a bit more refinement than our Stage 1 kit can offer, then this Stage 2 kit may be right up your alley. This kit includes our Shifter Rocker Upgrade (1922), Short Throw Adapter (1923), Shifter Centering Spring Upgrade (1918), Shifter Base Bushings (1914), and Shift Linkage Bushing Upgrade (1881). After installing this kit, you should notice a substantial change in shifting feel. Expect narrower gates, shorter throws, a substantial reduction in that "mushy" feeling at the end of shifts, as well as snappier centering action. Add an ESCO or POCO shift knob or boot collar to further customize the look and feel of your shifting setup. Please note that use of the ESCO knob on the Sport or CTR model may result in improper fitment of the shift boot under the shift knob. This can be corrected using one of our 1924 Boot Collar Upgrade kits.
Important Note for FK8 shifter users: If you are using an FK8 Shifter in your Sport or Si, the 1923 Short Throw Adapter will not work on your shifter. Instead of this kit, you should purchase the Stage 2 kit for the CTR, which omits the 1923 Short Throw Adapter.
