I would advise doing this if you plan on upgrading your exhaust or anything.. It is a whole lot easier to do while the exhaust is out of the way.

If your looking to do it on an Integra www.team-integra.com has a REALLY good guide on how to do it.

Its just a shifter... even with the exhaust there... just drop the hanger and its easy!

geoch is right... if u can get under the car enough... drop one of the hangers.... your short throw might rub a bit on your exhaust

I just did mine. Not hard. Installation can be at fast as 30 minutes, if the short shifter can clear the exhaust pipe.

Silicon grease will do, the type used for suspension bushing.
