Forbidden Motorsports Short Shifter

So alot of you guys know and maybe even use the only true short shifter made for 4th generation preludes by forbidden motorsports. I've heard great things about the company and the shifter, but does a short shifter hurt the engine, or put alot of stress on the transmission?

Re: Forbidden Motorsports Short Shifter

there's 2 companies. PSPEC is the other and my personal preference is the PSPEC since it comes with a new genuine leather boot, knob, and the feel/throws are identical if not better than the 4bidden.

4th and 5th gen Accord, 1st gen Acura CL, and 4th gen Prelude shifters are discontinued. You must swap to the newer 6th gen Accord or 5th gen Prelude shifter box and cables to use the new PSPEC shifter in the older cars.
That sucks...

WOW!!!! Looks like I've got a rarity on my hands guys. Such a shame- this thing is absolutely amazing. Definately in the top 3 of favorite mods.

Re: Forbidden Motorsports Short Shifter

yea Pspec just discontinued the models listed above when they redesigned the one for 5th gen ludes and 6th gen accords to being adjustable. I just have to say; i was on the waiting list for these new ones for about 2 months but it was well worth the extra money and the wait. that thing is SWEET.

I've only heard good things about the Forbidden for 4th gens. So i guess that is a very good thing since your options are kind of limited even if you could find an older used Pspec for sale or go with Forbidden, I say true short shifter FTMFW!
