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.

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

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

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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    Easy install, great results!!!

    I installed the shifter and the two post bracket on my '13 GT in the driveway. I put the front end up on ramps and realized that my ever widening body wouldn't fit under the middle of the car to reach the shifter bracket. I chocked the front tires on the ramps and jacked the back end off the ground and put jack stands under the rear. With the car on the ramps, jack stands and jack the car was stable enough to climb under. Not a lot of room to spare, but enough to wiggle under. I followed the directions and was finished in under 2 hours. The factory rubber shifter boot wasn't too hard to reinstall once I figured out that it sits in the groove at the bottom on the shifter. There is no way to get a good picture of what the boot looks like installed because it is covered by the upper part of the boot. If it isn't in the groove properly it will let road grit into the shifter mechanism. Once I had the boot reinstalled I climbed back under the car to make sure it was in the groove, all the way around and it was. The shifter makes a little more noise than the stock unit, but the difference in positive shifting is well worth a little noise. The shifter now feels like it is connected to the car as opposed to feeling like it's sitting on a rubber mount (which it was). Shifting in the upper RPM range there is no question whether it will go into 3rd anymore. I'm not sure how much of an advantage the reduced throw is, but the positive shifting is a definite advantage. I would recommend it for a daily driver, I got used to it by the time I drove out of the neighborhood. I chose this over the Hurst shifter (owned and loved many Hurst shifters) because there is no way I would let someone drive my car without reverse lockout. I would be worried they would back into someone pulling away from a stop light (led indicator or not).

    Tight shifts

    This shifter is awsome it maitains the factory lock out option and is a breeze to install. The shifts are extremely sharp and tight and you can really here it click in. Great for power shifting or no lift shifting. The install is quick and easy and the two post bracket makes a huge difference over the factory bracket.

    Barton Shifter is Bad Azz!

    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

    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

    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!

    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+.
