It reduces throw by about 33% if I remember correctly.

Comptech/TWM/Corsport/S2 have IDENTICAL THROW REDUCTIONS. They are all the same size, same adapter, with different ways of locking the adapter to the shift assembly. If it was any longer (will reduce the throw of the shift) then it will NOT fit at all. Clearance is the main issue with the adapters.

And no it does not fit the r18.

Wrong, looks like it does fit the NON si models, from what the Skunk2 representative says http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/4587102-post42.html

For 2 years its been the 06+ civic SI short shifter. if it works with the R18 then i guess it took 2 years for everyone to realize it.

Probably not. Lol...the only different between the ct and the s2 would be the way the screw goes in. Since the screw goes in toward the ball in the s2 it'll be hard to get it loosened up. I noticed couple people with the ct said the ss fell off couple times.

Yes indeedy, Skunk2 has listed their SS to fit all Civic 06 and up. The shifters may be different but the ball at the end of the shift lever may be the same... until we have a chance to fit one ourselves we wont know for sure, but I doubt Skunk2 would list something without checking.

To anyone interested in doing the test fit for the community, contact me. I'll give that person 50% off the product just in case it does not work out. If it does not? you can always sell it and make your money back.

1. Is there a DIY to install this adapter.... I am not good with stuff if it involves heavy duty equipment (lifting the car etc..) But I have done minor mods to my cars, ex. installing Auto Dimming mirror by takign apart roof liner, A pillar, etc... So on the scale 1-5, how would you guys rate the installation?

2. How often would these things go loose and one has to open the shifter thing to tighten these ?

3. Will these void the Factory/Extended warranty on the vechicle ?

Thanks

the install is very easy i just put it in my lx last week and love it. it's just removing the shift knob 2 pieces of trim 2 clips and a blue plastic cap. all you need is an allen key to tighten it down (make sure you have allen keys because it doesn't come with one). it comes with instructions that are very easy to follow but if you want to see a different short shifter install for reference it's basicly the same. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/trans...-civic-si.html follow steps 1-6 then 11-16. the blue cap is a pain to get off i wouldn't use needle nose plyers like the diy says because it can break/tear up the blue cap. just use a 13mm wrench and pry it off and MAKE SURE YOU PUT A ZIPLOCK BAG OR PLASTIC BAG UNDER THE BLUE CAP WHEN REMOVING IT SO YOU DON'T LOOSE IT IN THE CENTER CONSOLE!!! to get the cap back on you don't need a vice...a gentle heel (foot) and the ground works just fine

and no it won't void your warrenty. or come loose unless you forget to put the clips back in place but if you're worried it is really easy to take off, it's just one piece. when you get it and open it you'll think wow this looks really worthless how could this possibly do anything? it basicly looks like a chess pawn. but the difference is night and day once it's installed. the throws are much shorter and more comfortable on your wrist.

Do you ship to Canada? If so, I'd like a shipping quote to Toronto, preferably via USPS, as most couriers charge high brokerage fees for standard ground shipping. Thanks.

The parts can be ordered directly off the site:

Shipping to Canada should be no more then $8-10 if it comes out to be more... we'll cover it.

so just to be sure, this shipping option is USPS, correct?

First Class Mail International Package $8.50

The reason I ask, is because i've been dinged w/ $20+ brokerage fees (on top of actual shipping charges) for $25 items from couriers like UPS. I just don't want this part to cost me $75+ in the end.

We ship by USPS all the time... it's no trouble. If you purchase from the site just choose it as the shipping method.

Yeah me too, I also want to know about these brokerage fees and border duties taxes. Hidden surprise ninja costs FTL.
