The shifter is connected to the tranny. When you hit the gas, the engine/tranny assembly torques on the rubber engine mounts a bit, enough to pull on the shifter linkage, which moves the shifter a bit. If it gets 'worse', moves more, better have the engine mounts looked at.

You have a worn/broken motor or trans mount.































When you hit the gas the torque being generated makes the engine twist. The engine is connected to the transmission and the gear shifter is bolted onto the transmission. Normally the motor and transmission mounts serve as impact/shock absorbers to keep this movement minimal but as they wear and get saggy they do not work as well anymore.

You should replace all of your motor mounts

If the tranny has been rebuilt recently then it might be missing a spring washer. From personal experience it will cause this.

Yep - engine mounts. The Integra seems to be especially hard on engine mounts. We had to replace two of my son's mounts in his 1994 this year. With broken mounts the whole engine/transmission moves depending on the throttle, and so does your shifter.
