89si h22 swap shift pattern backwards

hey..I'm new to this forum but I just picked up an 89 Prelude si with an H22 swap. Car is great...except the shift pattern is upside down! What I mean by that is 1st gear is bottom left, gear 2 is above that...basically a normal shifter turned upside down. Anyone know how this happened and how to fix it? Thanks!

never mind...after researching a bit on different forums it turns out using a stock 88-91 prelude shifter with the H22 results in

shift pattern. The fix is to use a 4th gen prelude shifter/cables if anyone else was curious

Re: 89si h22 swap shift pattern backwards

i guess its because the the cables are so short its pushing them in the opposite direction.

so i would deff. look into getting h serious shift linkage and 4th gen shifter plate.
its a easy fix.

That's cool haha, I would personally leave it like that. It's like the manual transmission in the Mercedes 190e.
