Our modern 6-speed bronze bushing fits 2001-2005 Mazda Miata NB2 with "modern" 6-speed transmission (larger 17mm shifter tip). Mazda changed the design of the 6-speed transmission somewhere in between the 2001 and 2002 model years. So if you have a 2001-2002 6-speed, please check your VIN before ordering a shifter bushing. If the last six digits of your VIN are below 220739, order the 5-speed/early 6-speed bushing HERE. If the last six digits of your VIN are above 220738, you're in the right place as you need the modern 6-speed bushing. If checking the VIN number sounds confusing, a surefire way of determining what size bushing you need is to remove your shifter and existing bushing, then measure the tip of the shifter circumference (where the bushing goes). If it's 17mm, then you need the "modern" bushing, which is this one. If it's 15mm, then you need the standard 5-speed/early 6-speed bushing

Our experience and expertise in building race-ready shifter bushings for the 5-speed Miata's led us to naturally develop a stronger bushing for the modern 2001+ Miata 6-speed transmissions as well. With this newest version of 6-speed bushing comes a superior material in bronze instead of aluminum. Bronze is a super tough metal that is used in high stress, high wear automotive applications, such as: springs, bearings, bushings, automobile transmission pilot bearings, fittings, small drive gears, and valve guides. Bronze also has very low metal-on-metal friction characteristics, which makes it a prime candidate for a shifter bushing. Bronze is also a heavy metal, and you'll feel the weight of our bushings when you hold them in your hand!

I got this bushing for my 2001 SE miata and it completely changed how the shifter feels, much firmer and more predictable! It's great! If you are rebuilding your shifter, getting a bronze bushing is a must! It will never wear out!
