    skunk2... supposedly perfectly weighted for a great feel with the s2 shifter... or so i've herd.

    EDIT: my bad, i thought you were just asking about knobs. but still... everybody seems to love the skunk2 shifter and knob. OEM has never done me wrong though so i've never had a reason to stray.

    I've heared good things about neuspeed shifters, and bad things about B&M shifters.. but have no experience whatsoever with either. I kept mine stock, but will probably be changing my civic to a Neuspeed sooner or later.

    Make that later.. I still need a few things.. llike.. everything.

    The position of the shift knob is the difference.

    It "shifts" exactly the same. The single bend sits the knob closer to you and at an angle. the dual bend sits further from you, but is upright. its just a matter of taste..

    I got a ITR shifter and a GSR shift knob. Feels hella smooth shifting.

    Oh and when you do the swap, also get the shifter bushing kit for it also. You'll thank your self later when you feel the difference.

    I'd say a bushing kit is far superior to a short shifter. Makes your shifts faster/easier/alot more crisp.

    P.S. not to say that you HAVE to get a bushing set OR a short shifter... You can do both. I just re-read the post and it sounded like I was saying it was either-or...
