The Devil is in the Details
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.

Just did a quick test drive with my new @acuityinstruments short shifter.... And let me tell you...... Wow no play at all very short throw. Thanks again to @axion_industries for providing another awesome product for my 9th in just 2 days shipping #acuityinstruments #shortshifter #honda #civic #si #fb6 #kseries #9thgen #k24z7 #9gensosiety #axionind #hpd #hfp #ktuned #skunk2 #godspeed #prlmotorsports
I purchased the acuity short throw, transmission cable bushings, and the boot collar. Excellent products! The bushings really tightened that terrible play in the shifter and the short throw reduced my shifts dramatically. The boot collar is well worth the money to replace the stock plastic one that breaks constantly. I also received some really nice stickers, wrist bands, and air freshener! Great company and I'm glad I finally purchased everything I wanted!
Upon examinating the built quality of this shifter it's clear that Acuity has put way more time and effort with this part than the oem manufacturer themselves.
One of the best Honda stock shifters I have felt is of the S2000 and it can't really be compared with a transmission with shifter cables. However, after installing this shifter, shifts felt way better than the s2000 shifter after testing them back to back.
Installation is simple. I installed the shifter first and then the cable bushings the following day to see the difference they made and it is tremendous, shifts feel much more crisp. The fact that it's fully adjustable is a huge plus point as well.
I would recommend this shifter to anyone looking for a high quality part made to last the life of the car.
Absolutely love it! Shifts smooth and looks incredible. It's all metal and feels amazing. Crazy adjustable i have the throw set to the shortest setting and the gate set about half. It feels like a crossbreed between an sti and a civic si gearbox. Nothing better.
Absolute amazing piece of equipment. Best bang for your buck. Makes my FG4 so much more fun and enjoyable.
Sorry I took so long to write this review. I bought and installed this MONTHS ago. Completely worth every penny. Install was a breeze and the quality cannot be explained in words. The changes and level of difference is otherworldly. I bought a cheaper a shifter and immediately regretted it. Pay the money, get this shifter, have a blast. I purchased the springs and bushings but have not gotten to installing them, but have been very anxious to do so. Acuity makes quality and great products to improve your driving experience. Spend the cash and have fun ripping around.
