TWM Short Shifter Review

I recently bought TWM performance's short shifter for 8th generation Accords and just had a blast installing it!

Regardless of how much a pain in the ass it was to install, it was absolutely worth it. It is the best mod I have done to date, hands down.

I purchased the short shifter, base bushings, cable bushings and a shift knob from them. After a 15% discount (gotta love google), it totaled $368. It is pretty expensive, but absolutely worth it.

Before I installed the TWM products, I had the CT Engineering Short Shifter Adapter and Torque Solutions cable bushings. The parts helped a lot, but my shifts still felt, for lack of better words, mushy. With all the TWM parts installed, everything feels solid and precise.

I nearly destroyed the shifter cup tabs while installing so I would recommend a friend help you. As long as you keep one tab intact (it is the tab on the other side of the shaft on the picture below), the cup will be secured fine. I would also recommend installing the cable bushings once you get the shift assembly removed, it will allow more flex room for the shift cables going to the transmission which you will need.

Cable Bushings (it is to get the end of the cable over the bushing on the larger one. I took a hammer and flat head screwdriver and VERY lightly tapped it into place)
