K-Tuned 5th Gear Lockout

The oem shifter and cable system might be fine for a car going to pick up some groceries, but in a performance car this setup is definitely lacking. It is unfortunately all too common that people are missing gears with K-series transmission which can be costly.

In a stock RSX or a swapped car a mis-shift from 1-2-1 or 2-3-2 usually results in a blown motor with a big ugly hole in the block. Using feedback from racers, K-Tuned has come in and developed a complete shifter system to keep the gears going where they are supposed to be.

The K-Tuned Shifter 5th Gear Lockout comes with the K-tuned Shifter Billet Arm. This 100% billet aluminum arm uses a durable delrin pivot ball with much tighter clearances than stock. The arm was also fitted with a stiffer neutral return spring to help remove shifter “play” or “looseness” that people commonly complain about. Now for the tricky part, the 5th Gear Lockout is like a guide that was designed to keep the shifter going into the correct gear.

Start with a billet template that fits over the base of the oem shifter box. On this base K-tuned designed a spring loaded pin to lock the shifter out of the 5-6-R section of the shifter. By doing this the user just needs to focus on shifting to 4 corners. However K-tuned made it with 2 settings. When setup in the release setting, 4th gear opens the shifter up for a normal shift to 5th if needed. Designed to fit all oem shifter boxes from K20A/A2/ and Z1 engines and also the EM2 Civic shifter box, this part is like an insurance policy for your engine. Street car or race car, the K-tuned guided 5th Gear Lockout will definitely keep your gears going in the right spot.
