Talking diy short throw on 04 six speed

this dyi mod was done on a 04 accord six speed with the HFP package. Remove the Type R shift knob first. Next remove the retaining bolt that is located underneath the shift knob. Reinstall the type R shift knob. You will notice that the shift knob now sits about an inch lower. It has a better look and you lose about an inch off the throw.

It does work, but for the stock knob its almost impossible to line up the numbers vertically.

I can do that on my Spoon knob but I perfer the higher position because our seats are designed so high.

This is just like the countersunk knobs for S2k's

Basically the knob is threaded really far into the knob so it ends up sitting lower on the shaft

Nice DIY

I tried this before, i didn't like the way part of my hand was grabbing the boot everytime I grabbed the shift knob. So I put it back up. Maybe it's just me.

An inch lower? After I did this, it was maybe only 1/2 inch lower if that.
