    so you already have the shifter cables in your car right?

    it should be rather straight forward, take old shifter out, put new one in...????

    Check the DC Sports website my buddy put one of those short shifter adapters on his H22 swap. It should be the same as the DC.

    it would require modification to say the least...

    gsr = rods, h22 = shifter cables...
    totally diffrent underneath thew shift boot

    I think my buddy used a DC for an Accord or Prelude either should work.

    The short shift adapter would only work if he switched the Integra linkage (solid) to the Prelude/Accord linkage (cable). I'm not sure if this has to be done for an H22 Integra.

    If it has....those short shift adapters kinda suck. I had one in my Accord, and it was barely noticeable. If you do buy one, get an OBX or generic brand unit. There's no sense in paying the extra for a DC unit when all it really is is a machined piece of aluminum.

    the shifters have to be switched, there's no way around it...
    there are no shift rod based f or h series trannies

    i swapped my shift rods for a cable setup from an accord...

    short shirters are a waste of money...


    edit: did you order a short shifter for your INTEGRA? or did you order a short shifter for a prelude/accord?

    I'll bet if you set it next to a supposed "quality" short shift adapter, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference, except for the markings on them. As reckedracing said, they all suck, but not because they break. They just don't do anything.
