which auto shifter to use?

So after much deliberation i`ve decided my first order of buisness over the winter is to swap out my t5 which i love by the way for a built aod. It has a manual valvebody trans brake and 4r internals. So heres the issue i want a shifter that will be awesome at the track and friendly on the street. I already know i will not be using b and m anything im leaning twards a quater stick and id like to try and stay in the stock shifter location if possible. Any help pics opinions welcome.


I'm not a magazine racer, my car is actually fast.
I also have a Honda civic but, mine has a bigger, uglier driver.

TCI outlaw with a holcomb shifter mount. keeps it in the stock location and you can cover it up with the 5 speed boot.

no problem man,


that's how mine is in my car, it has the boot over it with a cut out for the release handle though.

for any shifter though with an AOD you'll need this install kit -

for those of you running the shifter in the stock location, how do you reach it? im only 5'10" and there is no way i could reach my shifter if it was in the stock location. i mounted mine in the ash tray location





any reason you dont want to run a b&m? my pro stick has been beaten to death over the last few years and ive never had an issue

Just heard bad things nothing in particular though. Plus i ve used the quarter stick in the past and liked it. I havent really hadbut one other auto always had a stick so now im going for a more strip oriented combo and i want better consistancy. Thanks again guys your input has really helped.

Out of curiosity why not just a factory shifter? When I had a C6 I modified the cable on a factory shifter to work with it. I like having that more factory look and had no issues racing or driving it. I went the direction because I knew three other people who did the same on their almost exclusive track use cars. Only reason I bring it up is because you mentioned stock location for the shifter.

You have any pictures of your install? Specifically how you mounted it? I'm about to put the same shifter in, so any info would be great. Thanks!!

yeah I'm going to do something along those lines too. The guy I got my transmission from tossed the B&M Pro Stick in with the transmission since he wasnt going to need it.

That was 15+ years ago and I honestly do not remember at this point. I do not recall having to modify the shifter any at all but the cable is what needed something done to it. From what I remember it specifically dealt with where the cable hooks up to the transmission.

I have the same shifter but fit in stock location with a Holcomb plate and some minor notching to allow it to travel. We also trimmed the safety to allow it to sit in park.

For me the Holcomb plate puts the shifter too far forward. I didn't care for it.

I'm in the same boat. As it is, the stock shifter feels too far forward.

For which transmission? I use my stock shifter on a C4. I bought the B&M Hammer shifter C4 conversion and I have no complaints.
