Not Sure
great thread, its making me wanna order all this now.

got a question, however: how do the TWM cable bushings compare to the CorSport cable bushings? TWM is offering a package of both cable & base bushings. I'd figure it's be easier to kill 2 birds with one stone and just order that then have to order from 2 separate companies, but every one i've seen is using a CorSport cable bushing/TWM base bushing combo. does it really matter?

sorry if this has been covered, i tried a search but could find what i was looking for...

Hey folks, my Si shifting is starting to feel 'notchy', if that makes sense... I'm at 1700+ miles (should I really get the oil changed over to synth at 2k?)

What should I do? Change the bushings (I'm not sure how that would help) or is it the thin MTF they put it?

Anyone shed some light here?

The grind is better, but not gone. It's better because the linkage movement is that much more precise.

yes Amsoil will work in a lower trim manual too.. I'm using the new Honda MTF at the moment and find it to be satisfactory.

Subscribed.

This/these will likely be my first mod as the shifter is the part of the car that I think feels... off

Well definitely something to add if you are looking for a more connected feeling. Holy cabin vibrations with the powerstick. Fun if you don't have a creaky/rattling cabin for sure.

I would install everything but the corsport shifter cable bushings. They are terrible, they get stuck in your cables nearly permanantly, and the smaller bushing doesn't fit right.

Use either TWM or Hybrid racing bushings...
