Short shifter and shift cables

I am looking for a solid performing short shifter. I recently discover pspec has closed down and now the only option i see left is an adapter which ive heard bad things about. Looking for some help on this and if there is a soild brand of adapter I guess i could give it a try. Another thing ive been thinking about is the shifter cables. My shifter kinda sticks to the left and doesnt snap back to the middle after shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Would changing the shifter cables fix this?

Thanks

Re: Short shifter and shift cables

thanks man. As for installation, it went fairly smooth and took about an hour and then around 20 minutes to adjust to my liking. Follow PSPEC's tutorial: PSPEC Tuning - Honda, Accord, Acura replacement cable short throw shifters and you'll be just fine. Pick yourself up a nice redlinegoods shift boot and you'll have a pretty sweet setup Honda Prelude 1997-01 shift boot - RedlineGoods leather shift boot store

Re: Short shifter and shift cables

You will also want to upgrade your base and cable bushings with solid ones, it will give you much more precise shift feel and crisper too. I got mine here:

TWM Performance Shifter Bushings

They are pretty cheap for the difference they make. I don't even have a short shifter, so I can't imagine what the results would be WITH a short shifter AND the upgraded bushings! I just got a weighted shift knob from TWM also, it makes the shift knob sit a bit lower, so to me it was perfect like this. They also have a boot retainer to get a nice finish with their shift knob (great quality btw), not something the other "one size fits all" companies can offer for the lude.

And a couple of guys on PO also got them:

I got those same bushings when I ordered everything. Save your $10 on the UPS shipping and go for the free USPS shipping. Mine arrived in 3 days, way before my JTC SS (4 days later)
