The Ultimate 10th Gen Civic Shifting Package

This kit represents the best of the best when it comes to 10th 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. The change from stock is substantial and will change how you look at a stock shifter. This kit will likely become one of your most loved upgrades. The increased rigidity and centering force can take a few days to get used to, but for the civic and its uninspiring shifting system, the improvement is very welcome.  After experiencing it, you'll quickly understand why we say this kit is as at home at the track as it is on the street. 

Please note that on all trims except the Si, the factory shift boot collar will not work with typical, flat-bottomed aftermarket knobs like the ESCO knob that is included with this kit. In these cases, one of our Shift Boot Collar Upgrades (click here to browse) will be needed to hold the shift boot to the underside of the shift knob. Without a solution, the shift boot will sag, exposing the shift lever directly below the shift knob. To some, this is a desirable look when a high-end short shifter, like the one in this kit, is equipped. The choice to use a 1924 boot collar or not is purely cosmetic and up to the end-user's preference.

Robust enough for the track, Refined enough for the street:

Easily the most capable shifter available for the 10th Gen Civic, the beauty of the ACUITY Fully Adjustable Performance Shifter is due in part to the careful attention to detail and rigorous testing that went into its nearly 2-year design process. Gear throw and gate spacing are independently adjustable and allow for mild to rather extreme reductions compared to stock. Using these adjustments, it's quite easy to tune the H-pattern spacing of your shifter to your exact liking. To permit the most personalized shift, the knob is both height and position adjustable, with laser markings indicating safe adjustment ranges.The shifter's frame is built from a careful combination of aluminum and stainless steel, to improve the frame's stiffness while being mindful of weight. A large-diameter, aluminum pivot ball in a wear-compensating, spherical race provides smooth shifting with minimal friction and great long-term resistance to play. Centering is quick, decisive and consistent, compliments of a thick, over-wound centering spring and re-engineered spring perches. The spherical joint in the rocker has been heavily upgraded over the OEM design to allow for wear-compensation, to avoid the play that typically develops in the OEM shifter. To aid in installation, this shifter is equipped with unique base bushings that feature an o-ring fastening design that allows them to stay affixed to the shfiter. 

 

About the ACUITY Shifter Cable Bushings for the 2012-2015 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 2016+ 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.

 

What to Expect:

Expect a significantly different and more sporty shifting experience, even when compared to our Stage 2 shifting kit and other aftermarket shifting upgrades. At first, it may take some time to adjust to the extreme reductions in throw and gate spacing, as well as the stiffer centering action, but in a short while, you will find the shifter's precision, short throws, narrow gates and snappy centering making every driving experience an opportunity to put a smile on your face. You will likely find that the improved precision will lend to more confidence in quick shifts and more consistent shifting in general. Because the shifter is made from much stiffer materials than the stock shifter, shifts will feel more rigid, defined and confidence-inspiring during spirited driving. The discerning driver will notice more feedback from the gearbox compliments of this rigid construction; this can be useful in determining the quality of your footwork on the clutch and shift timing. The exact shifting feel is largely up to you, and we highly suggest you take time tuning the gate spacing and throw to your liking before reinstalling the console. The exact ratio of throw distance to gate spacing is a very personal matter; take advantage of the adjustments to make the H-pattern perfect for you. The joints in Acuity's shifter are carefully designed to be low-friction and very efficient at wear-compensating. This means that your shifter will give you a much longer service life than an OEM shifter before any signs of wear are noticeable.

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.
