    This short shift lever is built for performance without compromising comfort. It installs by being a direct replacement for the OEM shift lever on your Honda Civic. The shifter height is shorter by an entire inch, putting the shift knob in a much more comfortable, natural feeling position, all while retaining full functionality of the reverse lockout.


    The Boomba Racing Shifter also features the same thread pattern as stock, so you can re-use your stock knob, or top it off with a Boomba Knob to really complete the package.


    The shifter is designed & manufactured in Boomba's facility, right here in the U.S. and required installation pieces. All shift levers are precision CNC machined black oxide coated billet steel for maximum strength and durability. A definite mod for daily drivers as well as autocross and road racing enthusiast!

    As always, if you have any questions, please let us know. We love to hear from you guys!

    So you only take some off the top, the bottom geometry stays the same?

    This is a completely redesigned lever. It does sit shorter but it also features different linkage attachment points at the bottom.

    Are you doing a group buy deal for this at all?

    Been waiting for this! Will be buying along with the adapter. Also curious if there will be a group buy.

    We will let our Graphics guy know and expect some comparison photos coming in the next few weeks!

    We will not be doing a group buy on this item, However its a very affordable mod that transforms your vehicle.

    We will not be doing a group buy on this item, But you can expect to see this offered with our shift adapter plate as a combo deal!

    Hrm, was hoping sooner, I just got the Acuity rocker and was going to install it this weekend, but would put that off (since it's a 2hr ordeal) if I could see a comparison with the old one, until I ordered that.
    I'm not a fan of the 'extender' option at all (Acuity, Sirimoto, etc...). I did a similar replacement to what you @ Boomba have with my Mazda 3, and it was great.

    Do you know if this is compatible with the Acuity rocker arm if you can't get a comparison shot sooner? I'm seriously interested. Thanks

    From our research, that piece shouldn't affect the install of our shifter; so long as the Acuity arm doesn't change the mounting points for the factory linkage. If the position of the links is changed, we aren't sure if it will be compatible. We will talk to our graphics guy to see if we can get those pictures sooner!

    WTH, I'll go for it!
    I checked out other pics & vids of the shifter mech...
    The Acuity rocker gets rid of some cheap plastic bits, and this gets rid of more plastic while shortening it up.
    I already have a couple Boomba products (short trans adapter & shift knob), and it's of solid quality. I'm going for the SUPER SHORT COMBO!

    BTW, does this come with some lube??? And will I have that annoying click unless I tie-wrap the cable up???

    Awesome, I assume it’ll be similar to the fiesta ST racing kit combo... are you guys planning on developing adapter and shifter base bushings to include in the combo as well?

    Looking forward to picking up the kit along with your RMM, I know it’s going to really transform the feel of my car!

    This will not ship with lube, we recommend synthetic wheel bearing grease, for low noise operation. There may be a bit more noise than factory since all the shifting points are tighter, but its not loud. You just hear more of a mechanical engagement. Either way the trade off is totally worth it!


    We are looking into manufacturing the bushings as well to include in a kit. And you can't go wrong with the motor mount!

    I'll order when I get home from work

    Just got this in today.
    For the curious who've already 'done-up' their shifter with Acuity bits, here's their rocker fitting in with the Boomba short shift lever.
    Fits perfectly, so don't have any worries about this purchase (if you so choose).
    IMG_20180702_172924.jpg
    As for the Boomba shift lever itself, it's VERY solid, VERY heavy, and I LOVE the all-metal construction vs. the plastic bits that are on the stock lever.
    Can't wait to get this in. We'll see how things go next weekend (or maybe the 4th if I'm lucky).

    Instructions aren't posted yet, @Boomba Racing , is the shift lever just held in with retaining clips on top? I can't really tell from the pics that I've seen.
