If your thinking about a quick shifter...
...get it done!
Fitted mine yesterday. Couldn't be happier.
Cost me about £20 off eBay. Fitted with help from parscos excellent guide in the how to section. Got to be the best value mod available for the civic.
All gears engage better, including third. It has eased the third gear problems I've been having, although I'd be lying if I said third was now just as good as all the other gears cos it isn't. Third is still noticeably not quite as solid a change as the others as the inherent problem still exists (most likely synchro) but like I said it is much improved and gave me zero problems on an hour test drive whereas before it was giving me grief too often.
Should mention that I had to cut and file LOADS off the plastic section to stop interference. Reckon I was at it for an hour just doing this. Would've helped if I had a better file. Also reverse is maybe not quite as firm a change as I recall. It engages, but definitely not as good as the other gears. Strange.
