    Ok heres probably the most simple question of the day...

    I have my b20 hybrid civic, ever since i swapped it the shifter felt a little off compared to stock- i did run open header for a while, i did have a crack in my exhaust about where the bushing is for a long while, and there is no heat sheild!
    Question is this i just drove a completly stock car and it felt wonderful- the shifts were guided and smooth compared to my loose shifting shifter - this would be bushings 100% if im not wrong - just looking for answers and comparrisons to others experience in hydrid!

    Just buy new bushings. If you got the shift linkage right on the swap, this is the only thing that could be wrong.

    Werd, Suspension Techniques shifter bushing kit should do the trick.

    What shift linkage are you using? If it was like that since you swapped it in the exhaust wouldnt have had time to ruin the bushings

    nah dude, the energy suspention bushing is wack. It's too stiff and causes TONS of vibration through the shifter.....really annoying.

    Just replace it with a OEM bushing for $20 and call it a day.
