Tegiwa Short Shifter

Done a search but cant really find anyone who has commented on the Tegiwa short shifter.

Just wondering if anyone has it fitted and what they think of it?

TEGIWA SHORT SHIFTER KIT HONDA CIVIC TYPE R FN2

With 40 refund when you return you OEM shifter only makes it 95, half the price of a TDI shifter.

Any feedback/thoughts would be appreciated.

I have the one off of e-bay, I really like it now it is installed, the shifts feel fantastic, its just the fileing you have to do.....you have to do alot of it...more than I expected!!

not really, everyone that has bought one has loved it... as long as its installed correctly so may need some fine tuning.

Yeah that's a selling point I guess.

Personally, I used a hack saw to chop off a half inch from the original.

Hey presto.

Even when i sorted the issue with the clip it still had a really vague 1st 3rd + 5th shift and felt that stock was better. Loved how short it became but not the feel

Ours is a modified original part so its simply a case of swapping it in to your car and you're off!

Am i not right in thinking that the 20 one of ebay is just the shifter extension to shorten the throws where as the tegiwa is a full unit with a shorter stick?

If this is the case have tegiwa sorted the issue with selecting 3rd, 5th and reverse in that you dont have a file a big chunck out?

Ours is a full modified OEM unit...

Longer pivot point
Shorter stick

Everything is filed down ready to just 'plug and play'

That's a very nice price for the kit if you don't want to have a go at hacking your own unit.

I went the cheap eBay route and what a total pain in the arse it was was!
Lots of swearing, cut hands and lots of time spent,
It's the filing alone that takes the most effort and time, well worth saving a bit of time and hassle and going for the tegiwa unit

One thing i didn't do however is shorten the length of my stick, does it really make a difference?
