Is this even needed in Boss 302? I have the 2012 Boss 302. Everything I have read says it is the best shifting Mustang out there. Would this benefit my Boss any?


  • The BOSS might be the best-shifting Mustang out there, but I can guarantee you this shifter bracket will still make the shifting action 100% better. There is still plenty of room for improvement.

    no more mushy shifting

    Great product, my stock shifter feels tight now. The shifting is more direct and eliminates the cold start hard shifting. Take note that the shifter will be a bit noiser than it was with the factory bracket, but the trade off is worth it.

    I expected more of a difference. But you hardly feel it. Which is a good thing! Basically the shifting just got better. The shifts are more direct and less sloppy.. Slightly more mechanical. Ford should of put this in as a standard item. But I can see why they did what they did. There is slightly more tranny noise, but just a little.

    Major improvement over stock

    This bracket made a massive difference compared to the stock shifter bracket. This, with a modern billet shift knobs makes shifts 300% better. Definitely buy it!

    First of all outstanding service from American Muscle, speedy shipping.The immediate difference you feel in shifting is amazing! No more missing third and it doesn't feel sloppy anymore. It took me about 15 minutes to install on a lift. The hardest part was waiting for the exhaust to cool.

    Exceptionally Well Made & Does the Job!

    Beautifully made part - a shame it hides below the floorboards. Install took a bit of time as I have yet to figure out how to jack up the rear of this 2013 V6 with my one floor jack. Ended up just on the ramps in front. So I was a bit squeezed under there. The OEM support came off after a little fight with that retainer clip. Had to pry that off with a long handled wide blade screwdriver. The Barton part went right on. I applied a tiny bit of silicone lube on the urethane part to help with the assembly. A ball end 3/16" Allen wrench worked well for tightening the four socket head cap screws. Snugged it all up and went for a ride. Fantastic improvement in shifting. Lever 'snicks' right into each gear. A full throttle rev up through 1 -2 - 3 gave absolutely no vagueness trying to get 3rd gear. I don't understand the noise complaints as I found that to be very little different from stock. And no adverse vibration in the shift lever. In sum, a fine part that works well and is worth every dollar spent. One caution - as others have noted it would be easy to break those slender attachment studs by using too big a ratchet handle. I used a 1/4" drive ratchet handle and snugged down the attachment nuts (self - lockers) just fine pulling them to about the same one-handed 'feel' as when I removed 'em earlier. Well done, Barton and American Muscle!

    Very good mod

    I just installed the shifter bracket this evening. Make sure you have the right length extension (at least 10"). The bracket is very high quality and the shifts are crisper than the stock bracket. The shifter is more firm and wont miss gears or grind under hard shifting.

    I strongly recommend it for everyone

    I strongly recommend it for everyone. This part has to be on every mustang, it's true it helps a lot in racing by shifting faster with not miss shifting, but it also should be used by people who don't race, I feel better shifting now
