The kit is a great place to start for tuners that want an excellent shifting experience at an affordable price. We've coupled our our compliance reducing shifter base bushings with our innovative spherical shifter cable bushings and timeless ESCO stainless steel core, acetal knob. If you like a very stiff centering action, you can add our upgraded transmission select springs for a small additional fee.
About the ACUITY Shifter Base Bushings for the 10th Gen Honda Civic
The OEM base bushings on most Hondas and Acuras are made from highly compliant rubber. Thanks to leverage, the small amount of compliance the rubber adds equates to a very noticable "spongy" feeling in the shift knob during shifts. This bushing kit replaces the OEM rubber bushings with rigid 6061-T651 aluminum making for a much more decisive shift, even with a stock shifter. As an added touch, the bushings are coated in a purple Type 2 anodized finished, laser etched, and paired with class 12.9 flat-head mounting bolts.

About the ACUITY ESCO Shift Knob for the 10th Gen Honda Civic
Heavy shift knobs have long been regarded as a way to improve shifter feel by many tuners. The truth is, a heavy knob simply hides slop in a worn or flawed shifter and shift linkage. ACUITY designed the ESCO with the hopes of providing a more refined shift that makes the driver feel more connected to the transmission, and ultimately the car. This was done by use of a barrel-shaped acetal outer shell and a large, stainless steel threaded core. This gives the knob a mid-weight at around 172g...about the same as an aluminum knob of a similar size. The difference between the ESCO and an aluminum knob becomes most apparent on hot summer days. The ESCO knob remains cool tot he touch on days when an aluminum knob would be scolding hot. To top it all off, ACUITY has added epoxy filled lettering to the top of the knob and an engraved logo at the knob's base. The finished appearance is simply classic, showing obvious inspiration from supercars of years gone by. For the best shifting experience, pair your ESCO knob with ACUITY's shifter linkage bushings and/or performance shifter.

The stage 1 kit is made of all high quality parts. It did make a difference in the how sturdy the shifter feels. But I ended up upgrading to the stage 2 shift kit because I wanted a bigger more noticeable improvement. The parts look like they would easily outlast the factory parts. I had to order a boot collar so I could install the shift knob. So if you are going to get the stage 1, make sure you order a boot collar if you need one so you get it in all at once. I consider this a beginner shift kit, and you should just go ahead and get the stage 2 in my honest opinion

Next-Day Shipping Policy:
Shipments are sent only after payment has been received. ACUITY Instruments LLC reserves the right to delay shipments temporarily if credit card fraud is suspected. ACUITY Instruments LLC ships all orders on the next business day. This means that if you purchase the "next day" shipping option, next day shipping will go out the next day, meaning a total transit time of 2-days.

Shipping Insurance and Signature Policy:
Acuity insures all packages it ships. This insurance covers damage to or loss of the product while in transit only. This does not cover theft of the package after delivery. Because of this, a signature is required for delivery of all orders over $100 (before shipping costs). If you will not be available to receive the shipment, many carriers permit the recipient to leave a note on the door instructing them to leave the package. If you choose to do this, please remember that Acuity Instruments LLC cannot insure packages that are stolen.
Free Shipping Options:
Occasionally we offer shipping specials where orders over a certain amount are free. If we are offering this, you will see the free shipping option in your cart at checkout. If no options is visible at checkout, then either there is currently no free shipping offer or you are not in a zone that qualifies for free shipping. Most states in the continental USA qualify when a shipping special is being ordered. There is no choice of carrier for free shipping, but typically we will ship your order will likely ship using either USPS or UPS. If you'd like a faster delivery, you can opt out of the Free Shipping option in favor of a faster, paid, shipping option.

It is against Acuity's policy to falsify tax documents during the shipment of goods to locations outside of the USA. The tax documents for your shipment will reflect the price you paid for the parts. Please do not contact us requesting us to falsify tax documents so that you do not have to pay taxes on the shipment as we cannot do this.

On some shipping services, like USPS Priority Express, the service provider (USPS, UPS, DHL etc) will offer a shipping reimbursement if the order does not arrive on time. ACUITY does not assume responsibility for tracking these matters. If you suspect your service may have a delivery-time guarantee and was delivered late, please contact us with the order # and delivery info.
