Shorter Throw, Less Play, Stiffer Feel:
Refining your Civic's shifting system is a great way to add a sporty feel that will put a smile on your face every time you go for a drive. The ACUITY Short Throw Adapter for the 10th Gen Honda Civic can be appreciated as much during street driving as at the track. The Short Throw Adapter reduces the mechanical advantage of the shifter to provide shorter, stiffer gear throws. The extender is turned and milled from 300 series stainless steel, making it strong and extremely corrosion resistant. Acuity's unique clamping design ensures the extender will stay fastened, even with a modest amount of torque. This pairs very well with Acuity's Shifter Base Bushings (1914), Shifter Centering Spring Upgrade (1918), and Shifter Rocker Upgrade (1922).
By reducing the throw at the shifter, you are effectively reducing the play in the shifter cables by the same amount you are reducing throw. When the throw is reduced at the transmission, the play from the cables remains the same while the throw is reduced. This was the primary motivation for Acuity's choice to make a short throw adapter that fits to the shifter.
Each kit includes an alcohol wipe and grease packet so the spherical joint can be cleaned and re-greased before installation.
What to expect:
On the Civic Sport models, this Short Throw Adapter will reduce gear throw by approximately 26% from stock. Effectively, the OEM Sport Throw is 35% longer than it will be after installing the Acuity Short Throw Adapter.
On the Civic Si, this Short Throw Adapter will reduce gear throw by approximately 24% from stock. Effectively, the OEM Si Throw is 32% longer than it will be after installing the Acuity Short Throw Adapter.

- 2017+ Honda Civic Si
This Short Throw Adapter is not recommended for use with the Civic Type R (FK8) shifter due to excessive shifter cable angle when used together

Detailed Center Console Removal Video:
Shifter-mounted short throw adapters, regardless of brand, tend to cause the shifter to make a slight "click" noise when engaging even gears and reverse. There is a simple, cost-effective solution to this that involves drilling of the stock plastic shifter and installation of two zip ties. The video detailing the source of the noise and the solution is below. Skipping this step will not cause problems other than a possible audible click during shifts into even gears. This solution will also work with any other brand of short shifter for the 10th Civic that mounts to the shifter itself.
Installed on 2018 Civic SI. Shortens the throws just enough. Very well-made, the machining is perfect and it's sturdy. Easy installation but taking everything apart can be tricky (harness clips especially). Get the panel and trim removal tools if you don't have any. I also did the tie wrap mod (see online tutorial video). I installed the other Acuity parts as well and the result is great. I enjoy the feel of the tighter and more precise shifts.
ACUITY Short Throw Adapter for the 10th Gen Civic
Works as advertised. Install is simple. On my 2.0 LX sedan, I combined it with another manufacturer’s transmission short shifter and reduced throws even further.
Although it took me about an hour, the hardest part was removing the center console. On the bright side, installing this part was the best decision I’ve made for my car. And ever since I installed the short throw adapter, my shifts have been short, sharp, smooth, and precise. So glad to have made this purchase. :)
Just installed the short shifter adapter and I have to say is a big difference in throws. I have a sport hatch and the throws were a tad bit to long. Coming from a S2000, I have to say it’s almost as good. When the combination of the spring, springs and base bushings, and rocker arm. It made a whole a lot of difference. It actually feels like a shifter now and not just some plastic. Thanks Russ for the awesome products!
