Dual vs. Single bend shift lever ergonomics explained
#21
does a del sol shifter bolt right up to an ek? and does it actually sit shorter?

The single-cam Del Sol shift lever is the same one used in the single-cam '96-'00 Civics. Same part number and everything.

which b&m shifter do you have? i know theres like a sport model and a race model. im trying decide what short shifter i want to replace my current one with.

i installed an integra shifter into my ej8 like a week ago
had to grind off 2mm of the shorter side and 8mm off the longer side where the linkage bolts up
pretty simple if you have a dremel or at least a handheld grinder
i had to use my mounted grinder since i had neither at the moment and my hack saw blade was dull lol
turned out a little bit sloppy which i think is why the shifter moves a little more than normal side to side when it's in gear
but very much worth the $15 i paid to get the shifter
sits much closer to me than the stock one and the throw is a bit shorter
im used to it now so i dont notice it any more lol
but i've heard someone mention that they used b series linkage im guessing on their d so i dont know maybe it's just the bottom piece but planning on trying that out once i get b series shift linkage

^^ Do you have pics of the work and the final product installed? I'm always fascinated when I see someone actually take the time to do this project.

the bottom part being longer makes it a short shifter

just to point out those shifters are clearly not the same length, its impossible to have the bottom that much longer and the ball and tops almost perfectly aligned and still be the same length, pretty sure that short shifter is a bit taller to retain an "oem" height to the shift knob cause most are proportioned differently they ball gets moved up the shaft to make the lever action longer.

pretty simple to make your own by cutting the ball out in an uneven manor, ie 3" on top and only 1" on bottom then flip it over, thus moving the ball 2" higher on the shifter.
The only thing that truly holds a man back is the lack of imagination.
