Ok guys, these are going up for presale. We are scheduled to receive parts late July, so as long as manufacturing goes smoothly, we should be shipping out preorders by mid-August. The first batch is only 100 units, so first come first serve.

Also, all preorders get a choice of 1 of 5 different free HYBRID RACING shirts.

Here's how to do it:
1: Go to this link to pick your shirt: Free Shirt Selection
2: Go to this link to order the shifter: 8th Gen Civic Shifter Preorder Page
3: Use the code 8GCSSFREET when you check out

I like this...being adjustable means i can keep the throw similar/close from stock (which i think is perfect) but the precision of an all metal design! I need one! Thanks for the product.

Another cool fact is that being adjustable, it is the only shifter where you can run the shift knob higher than stock and still get a stock-length throw. You can also shorten the throw at this height if desired. You cannot get a stock-length throw with the knob fully lowered, however. In the fully lowered position, I think about 20% reduction in throw is the least reduction you can get.

How difficult is the install? And is it real difficult to install your performance shifter cables with it?
The shifter install is not difficult if you know what you're doing. We have created an install guide for the shifter to guide you through the process. I have done the install a few times and can complete it from start to finish in about 30 minutes with only a few simple hand tools, no lift. We will post that guide when it's completed, which will be before we ship out any shifters.

The shifter cables are a bit more difficult to install as they will require you to get under the car and remove the exhaust section that's under the shifter. We can do the install in about 1-1.5hrs with a lift. If you are using jackstands to get under the car and are doing this for the first time, I think 3hrs would be a better estimate. We also have an install guide for installing the cables. It can be found here: Hybrid Racing Shifter Cables (K-Series 06-11 Civic Si)

how high would it have to be to get the shortest throw?
How high? Lowering the shift knob reduces the throw, raising it extends throw. We will release an install guide soon that explains how to make all of the adjustments the shifter is capable of.

lots more than im willing to drop on a shifter but it is nice to see a full replacement that is worth the price unlike the TWM one.
The TWM one is definitely worth it. I like this design as well. I wish it was available when I was buying my TWM one. Good to have multiple choices

do you have any pix of it installed to show how low and high it goes? i really like this :)
We don't have any good pics of it adjusted like that on the site, but I snapped a few real quick from an employee's car. This was an older prototype that featured a carbon shift lever. The heights should be the same though.

I also attached a pic showing the shifter with the shift lever from our k-swap shifter (you have to purchase this seperately through a phone order only if you want it).
