Loving my new shift cable bushings it is such a smoother shift. I also installed a boot collar and an ESCO knob and it really enhances my shifting experience all around even more than my expectations. I also put in the pedal adjust bracket and now I can heel toe like Aryton Senna ;) Thanks I will be coming back to Acuity for more I have no doubt in the quality and the claims they make on their products now. Also the step by step guide online. Hell I am a Mechanic by trade and they really came in handy a few times when I was not quite sure about something very easy to understand and with good pictures so you can not F it up unless you really try.

Upgade your shifter assembly to type R with acuity stuff or Acuity full shifter if you can spend more money. You will be in love with your shifter. I had the throttle pedal spacer but I felt it's kind of higher than the stock position, So I sold it. Now I can heel toe with stock pedal position

Yea have been driving with the accelerator pedal adjuster and its kind of love hate. I like it as it does make it easier to heel toe but I also tend to hit the accelerator when I am braking even when I do not mean to. I have big feet which may be why. I am gonna try postion C tomorrow which is the only one I have not tried and if its still to close I may have to go stock on that. As far as the shifter yea that is gonna be my next upgrade. A full shifter replace Also thinking about doing the single mass flywheel and performance clutch if I decide I want to put in the day or so of labor to do that

C is the best position IMO as it keeps the accelerator pedal lower with respect to the brake.

Yep switched to C today and I'm gonna keep it. I lets the pedal set a little lower than the brake but still closer the the driver than stock which is what I wanted. A & B have the accelerator almost flush with he brake pedal and I did not dig that so much. Great product though.

I was on C position from the start and used it for 400 miles. Later removed it as stock pedal position felt better.

Ordered the upgraded shifter cable bushing and shifter centering spring from Acuity and I couldn't be more excited! Looking forward to installing and testing it out.

You should have ordered the Acuity rocker as well since you’ll have everything apart for the spring install. The reduced gate spacing combined with the centering spring is the PERFECT combination along with a ‘20+ Type R shifter. If you don’t have the R shifter (on mobile, so I don’t which model you have), you should get that as well. It’s an incredible, inexpensive upgrade.

I will look into getting the R shifter (I have a Si) I'm not too knowledgeable on this so I went with what looked like a simple upgrade since I like the OEM feel just felt like making it OEM+.
