    the shifter is very loose, so im thinking of gettin a short shifter.
    cuz even thuogh im in 1st gear, you can move it around like its
    in neutral...so would a b&m short shifter fix that?

    and also, how dx's have no rpm gauges... wut do i do?
    buy a cheap tach?
    sorry for a noob question..

    new bushings will fix it
    every B&M short shifter i have seen sucks ass (rattles, squeeks, etc)
    if you MUST get a shifter get the skunk2
    probly still need bushings though


    and you can add an external tach or get a cluster that has one

    my friend had the same problem. One time I started his car and he was standing infront of it and he had left it in 1st gear but I moved it around and didn't know his bushings were bad so I thought it was in neutral and for some reason his idle was about 2000rpm, I think his IAC valve was bad. well anyway I let off the clutch thinking it was in neutral and I ended up running over his foot with his own car and hitting the car parked infront of his. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:
