you can usually find this easily on ebay. otherwise, you can expect to pay between $130 or $180.

b&m or twm are supposedly better. i'm waiting to decide myself...

TWM is the best, it makes the shift 60% shorter than stock, which is amazing

I just installed TWM

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthre...ew=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

loving it...pics with the link...2 inches shorter than stock...and with the aluminum bushings shifts are firm and solid...and hella short. No extra vibration in the shifter either. I recommend it!

I know it has been discused before, but for the people who has TWM installed: is it that hard and firm as some people say? is it confortable to use it, or you just like it because it is short? tell me...

I've had it for almost two weeks...loving it...all my friends love it...all them honda owners are like holy shit thats waaay shorter than my civic ss... grin

but to answer your question...yes and no.
yes it is firm, but no its not like its super hard to shift. comfortable? absolutely...throws are so much quicker...i can't even fathom the huge distance that my hand had to travel before with the stock shifter (i know sounds exaggerated...but it really feels that way).
