big surprise from UPS today!

When I got home from work today I found 5 packages waiting for me from UPS!! First was my Injen CAI which I ordered from ptuning.com but recieved straight from the Injen warehouse. The second was my Kumosports Directshift conversion, third was the Revo technica short shifter from tornactive, fourth was my RSX shiftknob. Fifth was just a bunch of DVDs from amazon. I installed everything today and only finished around 9:30. The shiftknob feels great and not too flashy, great addition to the interior. The short shifter feel so cool also! The shifting is so short!!! I'm not so sure what the hell the bushings are doing under the shifting piece, but oh well...and finally, the CAI...OMG, I can feel the extra power when accelerating! It took me longer to install because I couldn't figure out how to connect the temp thing because I had left the adapter in my stock whatever. But after more thinking I figured it out and I feel very good after a few hours of work. Amazing how everything came on the same day!

My parents are always real surprised when UPS comes to my house, cause I didn't tell them I was expecting mywheels and tires and a body kit, and they all came in the same week. It's great when UPS doesn't screw up!

On your shifter ****, what does it look like? I was wanting a RSX shift ****, I have seen one on hondawerx.com, but it the ball shape. I saw somewhere on here when I was looking though members rides, but it wasn't the ***** shape. The shape of the one I saw was somewhat like ours in civics, but it was silver, and more of joystick shape to it? Does anybody know where you can get one like this cheap. My girlfriend was going to pick one up for me, but she called to tell me that they were going to cost 65 bucks. Or have I confused everyone on what type of shift **** it is?? thanks

Man, it has got to be really great to be able to just order parts and when you get them, just slap them right in like that. I get nervous about stuff and like to get it prof. installed. So I have to factor that into the overall costs. It sucks, wish I was more mech. inclined.

I got the 5-speed RSX ****. It's pretty much shaped like our stock 5-speed, but it is shorter and sorta more rounded compared to the "balloon" shape we got. I ordered mine from acura-carland.com, the total came out to about $38, be sure to let them know you want the 5-speed.

I'm actually new to this whole car mod thing. I never took any interest in it until I got my own car. My brother who is a fanatic and has many ricer friends helped me with the installation. I pretty much read the instructions, watched, and watched and once in awhile stepped in when I see something. There's a special feeling after installing everything and taking it out for the first time like that. Next installation, catback...

Just get someone to send you some empty boxes. It's still so thrilling to see that UPS truck pull up. Besides, my UPS driver is a lady and she ain't all that bad a looking.
