does the shift throw improve from 25-30% with the addition of the sr shifter bracket bracket?

mustangwilly

  • This shifter itself will reduce the throw by 25-30%. The shifter bracket won't reduce throw, but will help to give smoother, firmer shifts. Hope this helps!

Will this shifter retain the backup camera feature? I have the factory backup camera option on my mustang, will it still work automatically after installing this shifter?

AutoXRyan

  • The SR Performance Short Throw Shifter only changes the shifter itself. You will transfer parts from your factory shifter like the link bushing at the base of the shaft and the shifter knob. The reverse camera works off of the reverse switch that runs you back-up lights. It is an easy and straight forward replacement.

    Gets the job done!

    I bought this with the expectations of it just reducing my throw.But I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the shifter. Every shift has a postive feel with a little "snick snick" sound in between gears. I'm no longer guessing what gear I'm in, especially reverse....because that puppy is stiff at first. It took about 500 miles for the reverse spring to soften up, but that wasn't really an issue. If it bothers you they include a softer spring to swap out which I never used. Pair this shifter with the Steeda or Barton shifter bracket and viola.....no more missing 3rd!! One thing you have to realize though, the gates on the MT82 are super close. You have to pull straight down and push straight up for your 1-2-3-4 shifts. Your car is not a 1987 pick up truck that requires you to pull it towards each gear like your rowing a boat. Doing that is what gives you the most resistance. Give it a little pull or push and let the spring do the rest. I can shift easily between gears now with 1 finger. When installing the shifter you will have to remove the shift boot. Take a piece of tap and mark off where the boot came out so you know where to put it back. Not aligning the boot correctly may cause issues shifting into reverse. Also, you will never get this shifter installed smoothly with the car on the ground. The shifter bracket has to be loosened or removed from under the car to loosen up the shifter base to allow the last bolt to be removed. I put the car onto some ramps and slid under, but this may not work so well for the larger guys. This shifter is by far the best bang for your buck! You can wait weeks on the other shifters and spend $300+, but I felt my money was best spent on other mods. Thanks again AM for exceeding my expectations!

    A very good investment

    Taking home a new mustang (as anyone knows) was a cool as it gets. After the newness faded i noticed that shifting was mushy and almost forced me to be aware when rowing gears. Installing this shfter made a HUGE difference. The stock throw wasn't bad and the throw on this shifter isn't much different but... Shifting is more precise, I'm not looking or wondering if I'm hitting the right gear before I release the clutch. I read the reviews and did my research on the higher dollar shifters, I can say, this was the biggest bang for my dollars, added the retro shifter knob was the perfect finishing touch. "Get One"

    Great shifter at a great price

    Right up front, I will say that this doesn't reduce the throw a ton. But, I would say that it reduces it just as much as my buddy's '11 with the Steeda for about $100 less. That said, the change in shifting is HUGE. I never miss gears anymore. Each shift is positive and not notchy at all. I am very happy with my purchase. And, I want to thank American Muscle for the quick shipping.

    Great bang for your buck product just as good as steeda

    First of all I help my buddy install his steeda and this shifter looks alot like the steeda shifter very similar on the outside. Very easy to install took round 40 minutes to install. Once installed made big difference in feel notchiness is gone shifts shorter but not to short really feel a good positive difference

    Great quick mod for the price

    Install took about an hour and it was very straight forward. Once installed the throw amount is perfect. I tried a friend's Barton (40% reduction in throw) and it just didn't feel right. This one is great and I couldn't be happier. It makes shifting a little more "mechanical" but you know when you're in gear and it literally cuts the shifting time in half.

    Outstanding quality at a great price

    I was very impressed with the quality and performance of this shifter, especially at the price point. The shifts don't feel a lot shorter, but they are much more precise and solid. I installed it along with the Steeda Shifter Base bracket which I also highly recommend. You'll be amazed at how much more solid both the shifter and bracket are compared to the stock pieces. If you enjoy shifting you'll love the improvement!

    A Noticeable Improvement Over Stock

    I am very pleased with this shifter. The thick aluminum base plate increases the rigidity of the unit resulting in a much more "solid" feel to shifting and a confidence boosting "click-click" sound and feel as you move through the gears. The reduction in shift throw is not huge, but enough to be a noticeable improvement compared to stock. Installation was a little tricky as I had to put the front end up on jack stands to reach underneath (I have no lift), and you will have to pull off the tail housing bushing and drop the shifter down to remove/install the right rear screw on the base plate as there is no room to reach it otherwise with a straight screwdriver. Take special care to put the rubber boot back on correctly - it was a little bit of a challenge for me due to having some arthritis in my hands as it took a certain amount of gripping and pulling strength in a confined area. Getting the rubber boot back on correctly took as much time for me as everything else. Even so, it was about two hours total. Not difficult at all using basic hand tools. This shifter is a worthwhile modification. In subsequent weeks I also installed the Steeda urethane bushing and a ball-shaped shifter knob. The combination of the three mods together is a huge improvement in shifting feel and driving satisfaction. See my review of the bushing for more.

    No more notchiness and half the cost of the big brand names!

    I have been researching shifters for a while for my 11 GT. Since day one I have had a notchy shift from first to second gear, primarily when it was colder and have had it at the dealership 3 times since. First they told me to give it break-in time and it would get better, then they told me it was something they all did and nothing could be done and to give it more time, then they told me they could not reproduce the issue themselves. Now I have a good dealership and after reading the forums and researching the other shifters I knew it was something I wanted to try myself. I watched the installs on YouTube and there appears to be two basically different kinds of shifters available. I had all but decided to go with the Barton or Steeda when American Muscle brought out their own for a lot less than half cost. I figured I had nothing to lose with American Muscle's customer service the way it is. Took about 30 minutes with the front end on Jack Stands, very straightforward and easy install. They include a 2nd spring and 3 little spacers for the reverse lockout. I tried it with the one that came with first and found it very heavy and more difficult to engage than the factory shifter so I did the swap, all of 3 minutes. Much better and about the same as factory. The shifter is very high quality and sturdier than the factory one. Shift throw is not that much reduced in fore and aft movement, but it is a lot closer in the right to left gates. It is a very secure, mechanical, snick-snick shifter now. No more 2nd gear grinding either. I am very pleased with everything. There were truly no negatives with this and since it retains the factory knob nobody even knows it is there. I LOVE American Muscle, they make great products and back them with free shipping and the best technical service around.

    Buy this shifter

    I bought the shifter and the bracket and boy you get a good bang for the buck. Installation was pretty straightforward even though no directions were included. I just watched the Barton shifter installation video and it is pretty much the same. Make sure you buy the bracket too, it makes all the difference. The shifter throw is reduced by about 25%, but the big difference is the positive feel you get. That bracket Ford installed is a joke, a piece of rubber and zip ties. If you have a manual mustang one of these shifters is a must have at about half the price of the Barton.
