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 ...

Ask a Question

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.

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.

    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!

    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 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.

    SHIFTER

    The SR shifter is great. It is much more stiff and less wobbly then the stock shifter and has a lot less play. The throw is definitely a noticeable reduction and the shifter feels much better and a little bit more solid and smoother when putting it in gear. I have it equipped with the steed shifter bracket. Overall a lot better than stock and more enjoyable to drive. installation was easy just the bottom right bolt is very difficult to get to because of the placement of the shifter. Not the companies fault, its just where ford has it located. Great shifter and extremely cheap. Definitely a bang for your buck!

    Read the reviews before buying!!!

    This is my first review for a product from AM and it's too bad it's a negative one because all my past experiences have been great. I'll start with the positives on the shifter. First, the price can't be beat (more on that later). Second, the fit is great - better than a stock part. Now the negatives. The installed spring for reverse is WAY too stiff and like others I wouldn't get the "pop out" when shifting out of reverse. I had to manually move it to neutral and sometimes nudge it a little more just for it to pop up. When I went to remove the Allen key set screwup put in the supplied softer spring it just stripped so on to drilling it out I went. Now that the bolts out I'm left with a shifter in shambles trying to find a replacement bolt that will work with the shifter I had to retap. So long story short if you're willing to put up with either an extremely shift reverse or go through the work of drilling it out and finding a replacement bolt to save a few bucks go for it otherwise spend the extra and buy brand name. Oh and as far as throw reduction, very minimal.

    Cheap Materials and Poor Overall Quality

    Part looked fine when I first received it. Installation was easy. The first time I tried to go into reverse, I was very surprised. The shifter required so much effort to get into reverse it was unusable. I promptly removed it. I later read online about the replacement spring that this shifter comes with. I was happy to see that I could change the force required to push the shifter down for reverse. The problem was I couldn't get the shifter apart to replace the spring. There is a set screw that holds a pin in place that needs to be removed. When trying to remove it, the Allen screw was stripped. I had no way to remove the screw. It was made of a very soft material and what ever method I used to remove it, only stripped it more. As a last resort, I drilled out the screw. I found Red Locktite holding the screw in place. That's the permanent one. The machine work on the inside of the shifter was poor and after trying to replace the spring, the shifter is now trashed. Save your money and get a steeda or Barton shifter, not this "off brand"

    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!
