The kit represents the best of the best when it comes to 9th Gen Civic shifting upgrades. We've coupled our incredibly rigid, highly adjustable, high-precision short shifter with our innovative spherical shifter cable bushings and timeless ESCO stainless steel core, acetal knob. If you like a very still centering action, you can add our upgraded transmission select springs for a small additional fee.
Please note that while this kit is compatible with the Si and base model civics, the optional transmission springs are compatible with the Si only. Do not purchase the optional springs if you are planning to install this kit on a base model.

Easily the most capable shifter available for the 9th Gen Civic, the beauty of the ACUITY 9th Gen shifter is due in part to the careful attention to detail that went into its design. The shifter's frame is built from anodized, cold formed, heat-treated aluminum for improved rigidity and light weight. Stiff, 304 stainless steel cable mounting points reduce lost motion due to frame compliance. A large-diameter, aluminum pivot ball in a pre-loaded ptfe spherical race provides smooth shifting motion with minimal friction. Centering is quick and decisive compliments of a thick, overwound centering spring. Adjustments are provided at both cable attachment points to allow for careful adjustment of gear throw and gate spacing to let you tune your ideal H-pattern. And to top it all off, the knob is both height and position adjustable. Each shifter comes supplied with a boot collar and will fit under your console and into your shift boot just like your OEM shifter. A set of anodized aluminum base bushings and Class 10.9 mounting screws are supplied for shifter mounting.
About the ACUITY Shifter Cable Bushings for the 2012-2015 Honda Civic
About the ACUITY ESCO Shift Knob for the 2012-2015 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.
About the (Optional) ACUITY Transmission Select Spring Upgrade for the 2012-2015 Honda Civic
This is definitely one of my favorite upgrades to my car to date. The shifter itself is amazingly customizable and well worth the money. The whole install was also really easy thanks to the install video Acuity has up on their youtube channel. All and all I had an amazing experience all around!
This upgrade is necessary for the 9th gen civics. The own shifter is so sloppy and fells like mush. With the bushings and short shift you can feel it snap into gear. The throw is way shorter based on how I want it. Everything is quality in the package you can't go wrong with this. I didn't get the transmission spring, which I probably should have since you have to remove the cable bushings to access it anyway. Skip the other brands get Acuity buy it nice so you don't buy it twice.
Best/favorite mod to my car yet. When they say there’s a noticeable difference when shifting, there is. The price was difficult for me to pay at first, but after installing and using the shifter, it IS definitely worth the money. Also, when installing the shifter, I stripped a couple screws. I emailed Russ to see about getting replacement screws and he was quick to say he would replace them for free. He is definitely a great person to do business with. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and will do business with Acuity again!
