Description
Smoother, Firmer Shifts. By combining a Barton Industries MT-82 Short Shifter and two post shifter bracket you will enjoy smoother, faster shifting while you're banging through the gears. This two post bracket and short shifter replaces your weak factory setup that can allow deflection during spirited driving and power shifting, causing slow or even missed shifts. 40% Shorter Throw. Using a Dual Pivot Trunnion design the Barton Short Throw Shifter allows for a 40% reduction in throw with only minimal loss of the neutral left to right throw. All while preserving the factory shifter ergonomics for a comfortable ride.

Retains Reverse Lock-out. The Barton Industries Short Throw Shifter was specifically designed to retain the Back Up Camera and the Reverse Lock-out safety feature of the 2011 manual Mustangs to prevent accidentally shifting into reverse.

Superior Construction. Machined from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel, for solid construction, this short throw shifter and two post shifter bracket installs easily with NO permanent modifications required to your Mustang.

Application. This Barton Industries shifter and two post bracket is specifically designed for the 2011-2013+ V6 and GT Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual 6 speed transmission. The shift handle reuses the stock shift knob or an aftermarket knob with a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern.

any difference in feel between this and the "standard" new style barton mount?

  • Yes, but only under heavy acceleration or very hard shifting. The two post bracket by Barton is constructed in such a way that it transfers the rotational freedom that was allowed by the original bracket (although not much with the poly bushing) to strictly linear freedom. What this means to the driver is that all of the rotational motion that causes missed shifts is eliminated with the two post bracket. In other words, under hard acceleration you can rip through the gears without the fear of missing the notorious 2-3 shift on the MT-82.

GT Premium/Aluminum Shifter - shift boot Will I need to order a different shifter boot part for this to work or to use a different shift knob or will the one that came stock work (I noticed the FRPP shifter required this part BR3Z-7277-A to use a different shifter ball)? I have the '13 GT premium w/ the Aluminum shifter.

    Awsome Shifter

    August 15, 2013

    This is the first short throw shifter I have had in a car and wish I had bought one earlier for my RS3 Roush. The shifter is an excellent addition to the car. I no longer miss any of my shifts especially going into 3rd gear. The install time was under an hour from start to finish and the fitment was spot on. I have a few Mustang buddies that can't wait to get one in their cars.

    Definitively worth it

    September 26, 2013

    Very nice construction, solid, the throw reduction is optimal and very precise, straight forward installation. Just like any other aftermarket short throw shifter the noise level increases but not to an uncomfortable level.

    Barton Shifter is Bad Azz!

    September 27, 2013

    This is a must have for every 5.0 stang...The throw reduction is amazing and makes hard shifts a sure thing, no more missing 2nd or 3rd in hard acceleration. I highly recommend this product!!

    Barton shifter

    June 28, 2014

    I have had this shifter for over a year now. It goes into reverse with difficulty. I thought it might break In over time but it has not. The shifter works nice in low rpm operation but is hard to get in gear when getting after it in higher rpm scenarios. I consider this a performance upgrade but have been disappointed in its performance.

    Great Shifter

    June 04, 2014

    No more problems shifting in any gear, It make the car a pleasure to drive (it already was, now more). This is a comment from my mechanic, "Test drove vehicle before and after installation and found shifting is worlds better! Very precise shifting." 0.

    No fear of power shifting now!

    June 03, 2014

    Before when I would try to shift under power, the stock shifter would hang, especially on the 2-3 shift, or sometimes it's a 2-5 shift (whoops). There is none of that anymore. No more springy feeling. No more missed shifts. Just a solid positive shift. There is a slight increase in gear train noise in the lower gear ranges but 5th and 6th are the same as before and there is no increase at highway speeds. And even though the shifter throw is 40% less there really is no more effort going into the next gear than there was with the stock shifter. The reverse lockout spring is a little stiffer that the stock unit and does require a little more effort, but that's probably a good thing in preventing an accidental reverse engagement. My overall rating A+.

    a definite must have mod

    May 13, 2014

    The Barton shifter works great. It drastically changes the driving experience in a positive way. My only critique is that its a little loud. So that takes some getting used to. But overall I'm very happy with my choice.

    Makes the car feel and sound less domesticated; less tamed. If you are an enthusiast you'll love it. If your not it may not be for you.

    In love with shifting gears again.

    September 24, 2013

    Stock is very bad compared to this. My stock had gear slips n misses. This Barton is awesome. Reduced shifting a lot. Feels like a drag car. no slips and misses while shifting. I felt sad driving with old shifter. This made me fall in love with shift driving again. I did all possible mods on my V6 except a supercharger. This is my top 5 mods.
