I think I'm in on this thing.

Question: Is it a pretty basic install? I've had my console apart many times, running car audio cables and such. I've seen all the inter workings of the shifting cables and such. I've just never messed with it. Is it just unbolt/unplug the old one, and bolt up/plug in the new one? Are there any adjustments that need to be made once the new one is installed?

Edit. I see how you did the shift rod. Never mind. Lol. Could you just shorten it an inch of I were to buy one?
These are already completed. I would have to charge and additional $15 to tear one apart again, chop, grind, weld, blast, paint, and reassemble. I can do it if you want but keep in mind shortening the lever more means shifting will require more force and probably feel more notchy.

Basic tools to install. If you got the spherical upgrade you would need to adjust the cable adjuster when you installed it on the cable, shown in this pic:

These will sell quick. I have an old kosi shifter from way back and love it, but always found it to be notchy and made it difficult to get into 2nd. This design looks much better

I won't be in on these, I almost forgot about the shift assembly for an H/F swap. I'm planning on doing it soon, but Sean said you could work with those as well?

I could probably, but I thought they already made short shifters for 4th/5th gens.

Dave JTC was selling 4th and 5th gen short shifters, but there has been no response from his site or email from him direclty for years from me or some other customer inquiries.

I would say look into doing them for the Prelude community as well. Nothing wrong with a little more options.

Just got mine in today and I'm in love with the car even more now. Came home threw it on and I was amazed, way notchier than stock and the length I feel is perfect especially if you want to have a screen in your car. Props to MustardCat and I really hope he keeps making these available for the public.

I don't have it. If he isn't making them anymore you could probably achieve the same result by stacking some washers under the shifter base and using shorter bolts to bolt it down.
