looks nice ...but i have a question ...is that box needed ...or is it done to bring the height of the shifter down ...because i actually like the shifter to be tall but i didnt know if the shifter box was needed for certain mechanical resons and etc...if someone could fill me in id really appreciate it .. :up:
He did this so he could fit his center console over the shifter. If you don't have that plate to lower the shifter....your center console won't fit over it. Instead of the RSX shifter....you can use the accord shifter since they are both cable shifters.
I don't mean to burst any K-bubbles, but Redzone racing in norcal sells something of the same nature; but #2's box loooks better imo (wider tabbed areas and ramped section).
I agree that heat might be of concern; I'm noticing that the tunnel gets pretty warmed up by the header/exhaust piping; i can feel the warmth by touching the floor near my shifter area (my shifter isn't submerged into the tunnel, but mounted above the EG shifter hole w/hole blocked off by tin).
I guess you can put some of that heat resistant shielding/aluminum on the bottom side of the box it could help deflect heat..
On a side note, I wonder if there's some carbon fiber/fiberglass fabricator who can mimick the oem EG console and modify it (widen it & make it a tad taller) to where it would fit perfectly over the RSX shift box and yet retain the factory mount locations, cup holder, and shift boot while covering the box nicely.
