K-Tuned has developed the Shifter Mounting Plate kit to use with the 06+ Civic SI (K20Z3) transmission in a swap application. In the past, this trans has been a bit of a pain to use because the shift selector and bracket work opposite from the original DC5 Type â€“S design.
The original fix for this was to change all the shifting related parts including the expensive selector over to the older style. However , the problem is that finding these parts used is pretty rare and buying them new is very expensive. The K-Tuned conversion kit greatly simplifies this transmission swap.
Now you can keep the Civic SI shift selector and use it with the 03-07 OEM Honda Accord shifter box and shifter cables. These are very inexpensive and can be purchased from your local Honda dealer.
The kit comes with a shifter mounting plate to mount the Accord shifter box in any EG, DC2 or EK chassis and a custom shifter cable bracket designed for the Accord cables. The result is a swap shifter setup that works perfectly and has better feel and accuracy over the older DC5 Type-S design. Compared to the regular shifter adapter kit with an DC5 Type-S box, this application gives you over a quarter of an inch of extra clearance in the tunnel. Very valuable real estate when you are trying to squeeze a 3" exhaust in there.
Purchasing your shifter box and cables will be around $150, and you can get them direct and brand new from Honda. Why mess around with old parts that have play in them?
The Accord box is a 5 speed box, but this is the same box used in the 6 speed Accord and the connection to the transmission is what determines if the it will function as a 5 speed or 6 speed.
