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.

Alloy shift knob. My 2014 GT has the Alloy ball shift knob, will the boot and knob work with this shifter?

MyMojo Year: 2014 Model: GT

  • The factory boot and shift know will work with this. The threads are the same as factory.

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

jessem Year: 2013 Model: GT

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Serious Shifting!

    This shifter and the 2 post bracket is a great buy. About 1-2 hours depending on lift or if its on a jack. Jack a little harder to do is all. Main thing on install is to make sure the bottom part of the boot is sealed around the whole mechanism including the reverse lockout, There is a lip at the bottom of the lockout that goes around the whole unit.At first i thought they meant just the top part of the boot to seal it off from the cabin but there are two seals and you have to stretch it good to get it around the bottom seal then the top seal goes on a little easier. It only adds a little bit of noise. Kinda sounds like a blender in between gears but not bad. Shifts CRISP and QUICK.

    Day vs night difference

    Installed with 2-post bracket and I'm very happy with the results. Rock solid shifts and throw reduction is perfect. Even improved the dragging feeling going into second. A little more road and drivetrain noise but not excessive. Installation was pretty easy with car up on jack stands except for reinstalling the boot. It took me several tries. A little white grease and making a tool from 1/2" strip steel to fit through the shifter was the trick for me. Done deal!

    Love this shifter and bracket!!!

    The only downside to this product is the fact that a lift is needed for installation. But with a lift installation was under 2 hours. I would say this is a must have MOD, the throw is super short and engagement is positive and buttery smooth. A word of advice is make sure you spend the extra money and get the two post bracket and short throw shifter kit.
