Short Shift Plate Instructions
Shifter Bushing Instructions
Installed my shift plate and bushings today and there’s a pretty drastic difference! Plenty of juice for a little squeeze. For removing the bushings (the hardest part of the process) I reached underneath and pulled the bushing edge back while pushing down from the top with needle nose pliers, they came right out. OEM shift knob is about 200 grams, probably going to need something heavier to really enjoy this mod. Thanks Corksport!!

Had this kit installed for 4+ years in 2 different cars and shifts are still just as firm and notchy as the first day I installed them. Way better feel and shift engagement!

For $100 you get an adjustable shorter throw and a bit more positive engagement with the bushings. What's not to like about it!

Shift plate went on super easy, bushings took a little work to install. Shifts now feel much more precise and short. Easily worth the money.

highly recommend getting the short shift plate and bushings. Very easy install removing the old bushing a little annoying. but its worth it. Feels great smooth short shifts love it. I honestly wish i did this sooner

Absolutely worth, close to S2000 feeling!
Installation of the SSP and the bushings was totally easy, like 20 mins, maybe 30 in total.
I've set the throw to the middle position, which should be about 30% shortage. LOVE it!

I was surprised how much of a difference this made

I just installed these on my 2011 Mazda speed 3. I love it, the throw is a lot better and you can deff get into gear much faster. Was an easy install but the instructions was to clear on how to install the plate. There’s no good videos in your tube on how to do it but if you have any mechincal skills you’ll be fine.

Yet again another excellent product from Corksport. Shifter plate was extremely easy, now the bushings...huge pain in the ass with lots of cuss words. Patience and needle nose pliers are a must! I set my shifter plate to 40% and used stock counter weight for a more solid feel. Shifts are short and precise and gear box is tight and secure for aggressive shifts. A must buy especially for the price!

Great product, super easy to install both the shift plate and the bushings took me about 30 mins total. 40% reduction feels great and the bushings add a good touch to the shifting. always loved what you guys do. Keep up the great work????
Hello, I have a 2008 Mazdaspeed 3. My 2nd gear pops out sometimes under deceleration because of bad synchros im sure. If i install this entire kit, will it help, hinder, or not make a difference in how easily it stays in gear?
Asked by B. Bailey | 11/25/2016, 12:14 PM | 1 answer(s)
No it will not. I would look into getting those synchros replaced.
It will not, it is only for the Mazdaspeed 3. Check out our shifter for the SkyActiv Mazda 3 that fits the 2012-2013 models at this link. http://corksport.com/corksport-adjustable-short-shifter-mazda-3-6-speed-skyactiv.html
