The K-Tuned Billet DC5 TYPE R Shifter Box is a direct replacement for the oem 2002-2006 RSX-S shifter box which can also be used in many K-swapped cars. The box has been designed to work with both factory and aftermarket shifter cables. If you are currently using an oem shifter box you are probably already familiar with the excessive ?play? or ?looseness? that is found in the factory plastic box setup. Our full billet design is extremely strong and designed to eliminate any flex or movement of the shifter unit.
Our Billet Shifter Arm is integrated and has been redesigned to make fine adjustments to the spread of the ?H? shift pattern. Essentially this feature allows the user to widen the spacing between 1st, 3rd and 5th gear. Note that 2nd, 4th, 6th and reverse gears will also be spread apart when adjusted. We have also developed a proper short shifter option that won?t damage or break the cable guides. This is accomplished by making the shifter cable mounting point adjustable to correct the angle at the cable connection. The shift lever and shifter ball are made from solid stainless steel and seated in a spring loaded brass socket. This combination of stainless and brass allows the two materials to lap together while the springs push up and eliminate ?play? at the ball. The lever is fully adjustable in height and offset rotation. Height can be adjusted up to 2? taller or shorter than stock and there is an amazing 90 different offset positions.
The Billet DC5 TYPE R Shifter has two different sets of mounting holes on the base so it can be easily bolted into several applications. Mounted into a 2002-2006 DC5 TYPE R (outer holes) and it will still fit perfectly below the DC5 TYPE R center console. It can also be used on most K-swapped cars that are using some type of shifter mounting kit (outer holes used again). However, it also has a set of inner holes that will allow it to be installed directly on top of the interior exhaust tunnel without the need for a mounting plate. In an EF/EG/DC2/EK the inner set of holes at the back of the shifter line up with the holes used for the factory D or B-series shift linkage. Shave down the lip for the shift boot and drill 2 more holes for the front and you?re done. We don?t think there is anything that we missed during development. We will let you tell us how we did?
