Default B&M Dual Bend Short Shifter

I recently purchased this SS and I must say, it is quite amazing. Designed very well. Came with all the gaskets and grease needed. Straight forward install in my VX hatch.

Picked it up on ebay for less than $60 shipped

Interested, when I went to install mine, it looked like a bushing or something was missing where the bolt goes through it.

The SS didn't come with a bushing kit. It only came with orange O-rings. I'm still waiting on the Energy Suspension shift linkage bushing kit. That should be in soon. I'll post another thread on that.

and I forgot to mention, I already installed the SS. Just gonna snap some pics later tonight.

I think mine, the bearing in the bottom was larger than the bolt that fit through the linkage, or vice versa, it's been a while since I tested it. I just remember something didn't line up when I went to install it. I bought mine through work for like $50 a couple of years ago.

oohhhh, I know what you mean. The guide you insert into the bottom SS. I had to pack a lot of grease and mallet to get that in there. Prior to that, I was wire brushing off the rust like a mad man haha

So did you get a dual bend/single bend/straight shaft?

Pics of the bottom and what was used in that spot of possible.

IIRC my energy shitfer bushing kit only came with the one on the trans

I pulled the B&M dual bend off the Civic I parted out last year. IT was my bro in laws car and I helped him install it 5 years ago. Had no issues what so ever with the install then or last year when I replaced the Edlebrock single bend (towards the driver). I love mine.

It was like half an hour install if you don't run into any bolts or screws that don't wanna come out. Pretty straight forward on the install.

anything but stock, haha. having the short shifter makes it a little firm going into gear, having a weighted one is nice. its personal prefrence how heavy of one you want, lol. im picking up a 540 gram one next week.

Nice price! I've installed a Buddy Club Short Shifter into an EP3 before and it was a pain in the d!ck... no jokes. The EG was a walk in the park!

I like the throw of a short shifter. But that doesn't mean we should shift faster because of it. There are guys on here who have killed trans for shifting too fast. To me it feels more precise and there is less play. Looking at a dual bend myself. My bro had a weighted knob and it felt killer so I def recommend one.

the precision of the short shifter is nice, no play in gears lilke its in neutral. and no play back and forth in neutral. my knob is lightly weighted, cant wait to get the 540 gram knob, though.

i love this shifter to paired with the enegry shift linkage bushing and a weighed shift knob. never missed a gearand honestly it feels like the throw was shorter than my previous shifters, skunk2, ebay, stock. also the price is super fair. i liked it so much im actually on my 34th car and on all my honda's i go back to this short shifter.
