K-TUNED Race-Spec Pro Billet DC5 Shifter Box. It is no secret that K-Tuned is in close contact with the drivers of some of the fastest import race cars in the world. So when Spoon Sports of Japan asked us for a Billet DC5 TYPE R Shifter to use in an endurance road race car they were working on, we graciously accepted their request. In conjunction with Spoon Sports, feedback from several other racers influenced and accelerated the design of our Race-Spec Billet DC5 TYPE R Shifter that was already on the design table. At a quick glance, the shifter closely resembles the original design with a few changes made to the shift lever and elbow to support the high demands of race cars.
The Race-Spec Shifter uses a simpler fixed elbow position, which is only height adjustable and ideal for circuit racers who really like to use the tallest setting. For drag racers, this design is perfect for heavy shifting in cars with dog box transmissions and straight cut gears. Unlike a stock transmission, most of us know that you can't shift a dog box setup with light hands. The K-Tuned Pro Billet DC5 TYPE R Shifter is a direct replacement for the OEM 2001-2006 DC5 shifter box and was been designed to work with both factory and aftermarket shifter cables.
The full billet design is extremely strong and eliminates all the flex and looseness that are felt with the stock plastic box. The shift lever and pivot ball are made from solid stainless steel and are seated in a spring loaded brass socket. This combination of stainless and brass allows the two materials to lap together while the springs push up and eliminate
Massive difference with new flywheel and stage 3 clutch, car seems more eager to go. Its a heavy setup but after 2 or 3 weeks I was used to it, now I don't even notice it on the daily commute nor on the spirited jaunt to Fort William from East Kilbride. When the mood or need takes me to get up the revs the car feels like it gets there more freely.
Once again Automek works there magic on my car...can't recommend this garage enough...friendly and know there stuff I wouldn't go anywhere else!!!
Was wanting to do an oil change at home & needed a genuine Honda Hamp filter. Ordered & chose click & collect. Item was in stock and was notified that it was ready to collect within 15mns of the order! Grabbed it same day. Excellent service. Thanks Automek!
Needed a 5W40 engine oil for my Honda Civic EP3 Type R for a pre track service, contacted these guys to see what was in stock & they had several options on the shelf. Went down to the shop for advance and grabbed the Millers. It was really great to get some guidance on what to go for in person.
They gave me free haribos in the package so I rate 10/10
I placed and order with Automek, they kept me updated throughout the process and where very attentive with any questions I had. The part went into the car perfectly with no trouble and works a treat. dw
Quality springs, not too low. Car feels so much tighter and more responsive and the ride is good. I really appreciate the work you carried out.
Got my FN2 sorted last July with the guys here at Automek. I still had standard all round and the top mounts in the rear were squeaking, front were misting and the boot was leaking. Made sense. What a difference it has made, I opted for a FRSU at the same time and added rigid sub frame collars and the car feels brilliant, planted, secure and turns really well. The ride on Scotlands roads is hard enough but there is great control with these coilovers and comfort is improved on standard which is strange given how focused these feel. No track use but great on private roads.
