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 Shifter Cable Bushings for the 10th Gen Honda Civic

Years of experience have taught the engineers at ACUITY that there are many elements to a refined, responsive shift. Compliance from flimsy components in the shift linkage leave the driver feeling detached from the transmission. ACUITY combats this by replacing the OEM rubber bushings with much stiffer Acetal and 6061-T6 Aluminum. A large-diameter, custom spherical bearing minimizes long-term wear and tear while eliminating the binding that is caused by most aftermarket solid shifter cable bushings. Loose fitting components also contribute to a poor shifting feel. That's why ACUITY uses integral o-rings on the outside of each bushing to provide a perfect fit with your OEM cables. Tested on street cars, track cars, and ACUITY's unreasonably violent shifter testing machine, these bushings are designed to be robust and proven to last. Each bushing kit is laser etched with a unique serial number and includes stainless steel hardware to help prevent long-term corrosion, keeping your bushings looking great even longer. And if all of that isn't impressive enough, the bushings are over 20% lighter than their OEM counterparts, weighing in at only 48 grams (with hardware).

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.

5 Stars all around

So ... I decided to look into upgrading the shifter components for my '18 Civic Si not long into owning it. The car is fantastic but the shifts for mine were a little rough (partly me being in too much of a hurry to get to the next gear, and partly the car shifter just being a touch rough around the edges).

After poking around some of the forums... they all pretty much agreed on one brand of aftermarket parts - Acuity, and I have to say that I 100% back that up. From the customer service to the parts they produce they are 5 stars all around. I had several issues with my order (wrong address, one part of the order not shipped) and Russ got back to me ASAP, and when I say ASAP I mean the fastest turn around I had was around 15 minutes from contact to resolving the issue. Really I didn't know customer service could be that good, and I hope that never changes. One of the parts I ordered wasn't even in stock (Rocker arm) and they took the order and fulfilled it as soon as they got stock (exactly when they said they would too).

Okay to the important part - the parts - on the expensive end? a little? hard for me to tell because this is my first foray into car modification, the quality however? 5 stars, they are truly fantastic, and they really do change the feel of the shift.

Parts I installed:
- Stage 1 Shift kit
- Base bushings
- Shifter cable bushings
- ESCO Shift Knob
- Centering Spring
- Shifter Rocker
- Shift boot collar upgrade

It's a little hard for me to tell you what really made the difference in the shift, but each piece adds up to a much better whole. The cable bushings really make the feeling of sliding into gear much more satisfying and smooth. The base bushings provide a really stable base to operate from - it really firms up the shifter vs the standard bushings. I was a little worried about the cost of the ESCO Shift Knob, but it is just amazingly well made. I was burning my hand on the stock knob everytime it sat in the su...

New Car

Ever since I have installed the stage one shift kit, I now drive for fun. Along with the centering spring and short shift adapter, it practically feels like a new car! So glad to have made this purchase! :)

Please note that all shipments ship the business day (mon-fri, except on holidays) after they are received. 

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. Similarly, 2-day shipping takes 3 days since the order is filled the next day. If you require faster shipping, we recommend you contact one of our vendors that carries inventory.

Shipping Options:

Everyone loves lots of shipping options! We offer USPS First Class, Priority, and Priority Express for shipments to most countries and states. We also offer UPS Ground, 2-Day, and other options for most US states and territories. Please remember, all orders ship the day after they are placed. 


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.

 

Taxes on International Shipments:

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.

Guaranteed Times by Carriers and Related Reimbursements:

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. Please note that a full refund is typically not provided by the carrier. ACUITY does not offer full reimbursement of shipping costs, but ACUITY will pass on 100% of any reimbursement for shipping costs from the carrier to the customer.

Domestic Transit Times:

For orders shipping within the continental USA, USPS First Class shipments will usually take around 5-7 business days for delivery. USPS Priority usually takes closer to 2-4 business days, and Priority Express usually takes about 2 business days. Your exact transit time will vary based on your location. 

 

International Transit Times:

USPS First Class International shipping is very economical, but the transit time can be very slow. Please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery of orders shipped via USPS First Class International. USPS Priority mail is typically faster, normally taking closer to 2 weeks. USPS GXG is faster still, typically taking only about 1 week. Your exact transit times will vary depending on your location, and it is possible that your exact transit time will exceed the values provided here. We also offer UPS international shipping options for many countries.
