In stock form, the shifter and center console are mounted too low – the shifter resides too far from the steering wheel, and the console elbow rest is awkwardly lower than the door arm rests. By raising the OEM center console and shifter an optimal 2-inches, the FUNCTION-FIRST Performance Console Riser Kit creates a sportier and more comfortable driving environment.


Just like in the factory racecars, the shifter assembly is mounted onto custom machined aluminum hex standoffs, decreasing the distance between the steering wheel and shifter. Gear changes are now executed rapidly and assertively, and vehicle control is optimized by keeping the drivers’ hands on the steering wheel for longer. Additionally, the elevated center console elbow rest now provides adequate support, increasing comfort and improving ergonomics.


Utilizing OEM carpet throughout, the CRK seamlessly integrates into the existing interior. The kit includes all necessary hardware and trim, and replaces the OEM forward center stack with a new unit that offers greater knee and leg room. Over an inch narrower and sitting 2-inches deeper under the dashboard, the CRK center stack remains unobtrusive, yet still provides lateral leg support under aggressive cornering.


The Console Riser Kit is available in 3 center stack configurations:

1. BLANK FACE – Face is plainly carpeted
2. STORAGE BIN – Mounts the OEM Console Storage Shelf (upper or lower)*; upper shelf requires minor trimming on backside (see Installation Instructions)
3. CLIMATE CONTROL – Mounts the OEM Climate Control Unit*; requires OEM climate control adapter brackets and trim (2x #99657350100, 1x #99655267701, 4x #90014307609)* – cars that came with climate control mounted in the top shelf should already have these parts


*OEM parts are not included with purchase of the Console Riser Kit. The center stack does not use a universal DIN slot – each configuration is tailored to fit only the indicated OEM part.


PLEASE NOTE:  The Console Riser Kit is designed to work with the OEM shifter cradle - please check for compatibility with other shifters before placing your order.
