    It's not necessarily any worse than a B-series or D-series shifter...it's just a bit different. I've driven a friend of mine's H22 EK hatch, and I owned an 01 Prelude for a while...

    I wouldn't use that as a reason to not swap an H22...

    Because ive driven mr2's and jetta's quite alot when my car wasnt running and i HATE the feel of a cable shift tranny, its too hard and half the time you dont know what gear your in becuase it was soo hard to get into that gear to start with...I love the feel of the rod shift linkage in my civic..dont it feel like its binding up?? thanks
