From the factory, the Mazdaspeed 3 & 6 have a 13.5 oz steel weight attached to the shift linkage bracket. This OEM weight maintains a smooth, heavier feel during shifting. Though some drivers like this stock feel, others prefer to have a lighter, more responsive feel. The reduction in weight yields faster gear shifting and a heightened response throughout all gears.
The CounterShift™ is available in a Machined Finish and limited anodized colors.
The SURE CounterShift™ is a direct replacement for the stock shifter weight and weighs 4 oz, 70.4% less than the stock shifter weight.
The OEM shifter weight is an oddly shaped clunker that can be found in the driver side section of your engine bay. Depending on the model year of your Mazdaspeed, stock shifter weights come in silver (pictured) or black.
The size of the stock weight may also conflict with various front mounted intercoolers, creating contact with the hot pipe. The compact size of the SURE CounterShift™ addresses this fitment issue.
The CounterShift™ is machined out of T6061 aluminum.
Threadlocker Loctite™ is required for the installation of the CounterShift™. For your convenience, if Loctite™ is not readily available to you, it can be included with your Countershift™ here.
