after my comptech install, it feels a little more sticky coming out of second going to third. the other gears dont have this problem. i put a little grease around the outside ball. i'm not sure what you mean by "stiffer".

It does feel stiffer at first. However, I found that after a weeks time I got used to it and prefer this a lot more. In fact I would hate to have to go back to the stock throw.

Shortly after installing I was questioning if I made the right decision. The shifter no longer slid into the gears, I felt like I had to push it into each one. As Title101 stated, after a few days (or weeks) you'll get used to it and love it, it is a huge improvement over stock.

Now, if a company made a complete replacement shifter, I would consider buying it. I have had pro 5.0, B&M ripper, and hurst shifters on previous cars. The short shift adapter doesn't give a 100% precise feel like the replacement shifters, there is still play on the shifter when in gear.
I have a feeling that by making this statement I will get some feedback from others saying that I am wrong, and that the SS adapter is the best thing since sliced bread. Just my $.02

same here. I really did question my buying the ss since it was really hard to shift into each gear. Even when racing... i would need extra force to put it into each gear, therefore i always feared that i would mis-shift because my foot worked faster than my hand. but give it some time. now, its as smooth as ever, and i would never go back.

Agreed. Now All Comptech needs to do is construct a flywheel, pressure plate and clutch so we can start having some "REAL" fun!

Actually....(hate to bring up an OLD topic), but they do ComptechAccord4...

I did some research, and the clutch assembly and flywheel is the same as the 2003 CL-S 6 speed, which they sell an aftermarket clutch/flywheel on Comptech's website...before getting all happy....I would NOT buy it.

Unless you are made of money you can, but here is the issue.
3 out of 4 CL-S owners that bought this have gone back to stock due to a lot of issues, especially with it chattering and they have to keep realigning everything, for some reason it just doesn't fit perfectly. You can give it a shot, but it costs somewhere between $1000-1200 :-/
Not in my interesting to do that....I'm still trying to pressure ACT into making an aftermarket clutch.

On a side note, I am thinking about buying the Comptech SS...is everybody VERY happy with it?
