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 2011-2014 V6, GT and BOSS 302 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.

Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, Dave here from AmericanMuscle.com, and as you can see I have with me the Barton Industries short throw shifter, designed specifically for the manual 2011 and newer Mustangs. Now, a short throw shifters idea is to shorten the amount of time between shifts, this particular product, as we’re going to find out later when we install it, claims to reduce your shift time by 40% over stock, making it a pretty remarkable product if it holds up. Now, this part goes right in place with no major or permanent modifications to your factory shifter. If you ever wanted to go back to stock you certainly could, but with a unit like this, you’re probably not going to want to. We’re going to install this in our 2011 GT today and take it out for a test drive. First things first then, let’s get a stock run with the stock parts on the car to see what that feels like. That second to third gear is just not crisp, it’s a little tricky really, had to hang onto the clutch a little longer than I would have liked to, and third to fourth just flat out feels far and long, not horrible, but not really a fan. We just got back from our stock run with what we felt like a luxury shift that was already installed from the factory, at this point we’re going to go ahead and remove that, we’re going to take our Barton Industries short throw shifter and get this installed in our 2011 GT. We’ll take it back out, get your honest opinion, once again. So we’re taking our 2011 manual 50 back out now with our Barton Industries short throw shifter installed. Something you’ll notice about this shifter right out of the gate is how much shorter it is from the console, I happen to really like that look and get the sporty look back in the interior. I’m also a big fan of how it feels just ripping through the gears real quick pulling out of the parking lot. Really liking what I feel so far going into third gear, not just from second to third but even down shifting from fourth to third, very crisp and it really helps me know that I’m in the gear. Here we go, look at how quick that was, right into fourth gear, no hesitation, no delay, no question. This is a great product, greatly reduces the throw and the distance, greatly reduces my time between shifts and confidence is always there. Very impressed with removing our stock shifter and installing the Barton Industries short throw shift on our 2011 manual 50. Well the verdict is in after our test drive, and the Barton Industries short throw shifter for the 2011 and newer Mustang manuals, big two thumbs up. Not only utilizing that reverse lockout that I never questioned whether I was in first gear, or reverse, but the amount of reduction between first and second, and the aid from second to third that I received from this shifter, was second to none. We gave it a rave review and we think that for your dollar, a Barton Industries short throw shifter, is a great way to go.

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

jessem

  • 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.

    Pluses and Minuses

    The shifter was a 2 hour install at the shop so $218.00 to install. Pluses: The shifting is very clean and exact and the shorter throw is very noticeable. Minuses: Very difficult to get my car into reverse now. I don't know if I need to get used to the shifter more but I did notice another reviewer having the same problem. I just hope this shifting into reverse problem goes away.

    Difference between night and day

    The only way to make the MT-82 transmission slightly tolerable is with this combo. I performed the install on jackstands towards the front - clearance was inches lying on a creeper, but doable. Be sure to carefully follow instructions - I skipped a step and had to undo bolts I spent a long time tightening. Also read through them in advance to acquire needed materials beforehand. When finally tightening the bracket holding the shifter mount from underneath, it seemed they could always go tighter, but I stopped just in case I was deforming something. My pony already had an older version of this short shifter installed (I bought it used) and they had failed to properly seat the dust boot, causing lots of problems. BE SURE TO SEAT THE DUST BOOT PROPERLY - if it takes you only a few seconds, you did it wrong. Another issue I encountered was the circular cutout for the shifter bolts blocked access to the rear-passenger bolt, preventing me from fully tightening it. This may just be an issue with my setup.

    the good and bad

    This is a IMO, instruction were pretty good. one part was getting me. fitment was really good. the throw reduction was amazing very very short now. the only thing that seems like i'll have to get use to is goin into first, its like you have to hit a sweet spot, but should be way better once I get it. did a little test drive, took the rpm's up and man it shifts solid. I recommend this item ASh

    The shifter overall is very good. The throw reduction is incredibly short. The feeling is much more precise, as the shifts are crisp and notchy, giving it an overall mechanical feeling. Also, there is a little bit more noise when shifting and coming through the boot from under the car, although not much. The install time for me was about two hours from garage door going up to me pulling out for a test (also I took my time). I did the install in my very small one car garage on jack stands in warm 40 degree winter day. This can be done by anyone. Don’t let the getting under the car or pulling the center consol apart deter you. A good solid buy.

    Definitively worth it

    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.

    Oh My God

    This has made my mustang so much more enjoyable to drive. The shifting is crisp and quick. Can handle hard shifting. BUT it's super hard to get the car into reverse. You need to thrust down super hard.

    Awsome Shifter

    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.

    Great Shifter

    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.

    a definite must have mod

    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.
