Neuspeed Short Throw

I was looking into purchasing the Neuspeed short throw adapter for the 2003-2004 Accords and i was just wondering what everyones input was on it. I mean, is it worth the extra money even though it does shorten the throw by 30%?



Also, what are some good sites that sell this product at a reasonable price?

Neuspeed Short Shift Kit

I bought the Neuspeed kit, and could not be happier , it only cost me $55.00 from my friends shop, other places wanted $80.00. It really does make a difference, plus when you are as limited in performance products as us 7th Gen V6's , every lil bit helps. i recommend it.

I have heard so many horror stories about short shifters, and grinding gears. Not many stories so far from the accord, but others. I would love to get a 30% reduction, but I am worried about the ill effects on the tranny. How about some feedback from those who have it installed. thanks

Has anyone installed stiffer bushings like Energy PolyUrethane Shifter Bushings? It makes the shifts much more solid and cleaner. I have a neuspeed short shifter on my 93 integra with the neuspeed polyurethane shifter bushing, and i've yet to miss a gear or grind. It's truely amazing.

Anyway, it's very different than my shifter in the integra since it's the entire shifter, not just some adapter thing at the bottom. I'm still confused to how the adapter works =P

It adds length to the other side of the lever. So the side that's longer (bottom of fulcrum) it shortens the distance ABOVE the fulcrum, which makes for shorter throws.

With the short shifter adapter, is the notchiness of the cold transmission any more noticable?

everything you've heard about short shifters on civics and integras, and even older accords, throw out the window. 7th gen transmissions are cable-shifted in a completely new way.

for for bushings, there is no directing "bushing" per se for the 7th gen. there is no play mechanically, since all moving parts are directly connected by metal, to metal. the closest thing is CapYoda on H-T has some shift assembly bushings that go between the plastic assembly and the body of the car, and these were designed for the RSX-S. not a perfect fit, but comes damn close.
