Description
Smoother, Faster Shifts. Eliminate that sloppy stock feeling and enjoy smoother, crisper shifts when you're banging through the gears with a Barton Industries Two Post Shifter Bracket. The unique design of two post bracket replaces the weak factory part which is prone to deflection during spirited driving and power shifting, causing slow or even missed shifts.

Premium Quality. The Barton Industries two post shifter bracket is CNC machined from aircraft quality 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 304 Stainless Steel, that is then completed in a black anodized finish for corrosion resistance. This bracket also features a polyurethane bushing for durability and great shifter feel.

Easy Install. This two post shifter bracket installs easily on your Mustang without any permanent modifications.

Application. The Barton Industries Two Post Shifter Bracket is specifically designed for 2011-2014 GTs and V6s equipped with the MT-82 manual transmission and will work with both stock shifters and any aftermarket shifter that reuses the factory shifter housing. Will not fit Shelby GT500 models.

  • The poly is located around the 2 pins. It's not really visible unless you take the bracket apart.

Is there any noticable improvement with this one over the original bracket? I bought my Barton Shifter and Bracket in Jun 2011. Is there any noticeable improvement with the new design over the original?

  • I wrenched em down pretty good but you are using lock tight as well. They shouldn't loosen themselves at all. The instructions don't give torque specs but you will be good if you get em good and tight with a socket.

    Best Investment Ever!

    Install took 20 minutes, partly because I put the main piece on backwards the first time. Easy install just slide the bracket over the studs in the place of the old one, install the bottom support with some locktite. Got in the car afterwords and every shift felt like I was putting it into neutral, it just glides in. There is a noticeable noise increase as the tightness of the shifter box and bracket transmit trans noise through the body. However, I have never been able to shift so easy and to me it's a muscle car I love a little extra noise! haha Long story short my confidence in shifting into third and even second is completely renewed! I felt like I was wrestling it into gear before. Side Note: The play in the transmission with the stock bracket is absurd you can grab the shifter box from underneath the car and shake it around. With this bracket installed properly you can grab the shifter box and it doesn't budge!

    Best money I've spent so far

    I installed this product yesterday afternoon, and what a difference it's made! I don't drive my car (2012 V6 Manual) very hard, but the 2nd gear grind and the obnoxious transmission knocking sounds (when turning mid shift or in neutral) were really getting to me. After the installation I took it for a test drive and it feels like a completely different car. All the issues listed above seem to be non-existent now. Great product! This was installed with the stock shifter- no other mods other than this. Worked very well together.

    Money well spent

    Stock the MT-82 is unreliable when shifting lots of missed shifts and the need to muscle into gear. After installing the Barton shift bracket I have realized the MT-82 is a fantastic trans better than many other manual trans Ford has offered. Ford's attempt to reduce noise by producing a horrible shifter bracket has held this transmission back. Being able to shift with confidence is well worth a little more noise in my book. This modification is a must

    Two post bracket = thumbs up

    I'm using the factory shifter, with the two post bracket. The bracket does exactly what i expected it to, It reduces the extra slop and play while shifting. It does transmit a little extra noise into the cabin, but its negligible. I think the factory shifter is pretty good, and the two post bracket makes it an ever more enjoyable shifting experience.

    Perfect upgrade.

    low cost solution. Makes banging gears much easier and much smoother in all situations. there is hardly any increase in NVH what so ever. I installed in about 30 minutes using jack stands and one arm since a recent surgery. make sure to double review the instructions, it looks very easy to install the base backwards. Thanks again AM!

    Resolution to many issues

    First to start the i just installed this with barton short throw shifter. Both combined took me little over an hour in my driveway. This bracket corrects the sloppy shifts, missed shifts as well as any play in gear box which you could feel while going over a bump. As a bonus this also corrects the driveline vibration issue which exists on the 2013 & 2014 v6. Before this part my car as well as many other peoples v6s had the driveline vibration while decelerating around 3k rpm. Since I installed this part that issue has dissapeared. This is 1 of the top 5 upgrade parts you should do on your car. Even though it is a little expensive it is worth every cent

    Makes your shifts more predictable

    Having read other reviews, I expected the bracket to all but eliminate the slop associated with the Ford OE shifter and shifter bracket, but this was not the case. This is NOT to say that the Barton bracket isn't top quality, because it is. But be wary of statements made about ONLY replacing the shifter bracket, as this may not give you the feel you're looking for. The Barton bracket, does however, clean up the OE shifter significantly and it is well worth the purchase price! It WILL make your gates 100% predictable and there is no question as to where each gear shift is heading. There will remain some movement/play but that's due to OE shifter itself and not the bracket. Once you're in gear, you can move the shifter slightly left/right but once you bottom out the shifter slop, you can feel the solid stop and support that the Barton bracket provides. Aggressive shifts feel very safe now and I don't have to worry about locking out the shift. Vibration felt through shifter knob is slightly increased, but nothing to really take note of. NO noticeable increase in noise. Install took about an hour with floorjack and jackstands providing adequate space (I'm a fairly big dude and was able to squeeze underneath and get the job done). I highly recommend that you let your vehicle sit at least a few hours after driving to let the transmission and exhaust cool off, as you'll be wrapping your arms around the pipes to get to the hardware. I also recommend heading to Barton's website to watch the install video as the shifter bracket came with no installation instructions. Good product and I plan on buying a Barton short-throw shifter next!
