Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the SR Performance short throw shifter, fitting all 1982 to 2004 manual Mustangs. Alright, before we get into all the details pertaining to this very budget friendly short shifter, I think we should take our 98 GT out of the shop with the stock shifter still in place, that way we can do a proper comparison with the SR Performance unit, when we do get it installed. Alright so we’re out in the 98 GT, and we have the stock shifter still installed, and I’m battling with this thing man, it’s pretty horrible, the throws are horribly long, the action is terribly sloppy, granted the car is 15 years old, but it could definitely use some improvement. So with that said let’s get back to the shop, talk a little bit more about that SR Performance shifter, and then get it installed. Taking a closer look at the shifter itself, you get the impression that it’s built very well, this can partially be attributed to the 100% Billet aluminum construction, which should be up to the task of handling some hard shifts, and then some. In addition, this shifter features two sets of centering return springs, so it’s going to have that nice tight feel while in neutral, as opposed to all that sloppiness we felt with the stock shifter. Finally, this shifter does include these two adjustable stops so you can adjust the shift handle firmness to your own personal preference. You can also tweak the position of the shift handle, for more adjustment, so ultimately you can dial in your perfect shifting experience. Speaking of shifting, what good is a short shifter without reduced throws? Well, using the SR Performance unit you can expect a roughly 30% reduction in throws, which I know may not sound like a whole lot but believe me, once you get in the car and roll through the gears a little bit, the difference will be night and day. Since the install should all be inside the car, it really shouldn’t be all that difficult, you will need to slightly disassemble the shifter bezel in order to uncover the bolts necessary to remove the factory shifter and install the new SR Performance unit. While this is all pretty basic stuff, just be sure to leave yourself a couple of hours to get the job done. It is worth point out that the SR Performance shifter does not come with a shift knob, but it does share the same thread pitch as your factory shifter, meaning your factory shift knob should work just fine, or any other shift knob that shares the same thread pitch as OEM. Well, now that the SR Performance shifter is installed, let’s grab our 98 GT one more time, and see what this shifter is all about. Alright, so we’re out in the 98 GT with the SR Performance short shifters installed, and first impressions looks wise is a good one, I mean the thing sits at least 3 to 4 inches shorter than our stock shifter, it’s got rid of that goofy bend and that means we can finally use that front cup holder again. But let’s see how this thing does shifting shall we? Get down into second…third…I mean it’s definitely a night and day difference versus our stock shifter, the throws are real short and the action is really crisp, I mean it’s nice and firm, get a positive feeling every time you go into gear, it’s a great value man, so be sure to check out the SR Performance short shifter right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    SR Performance Short Throw Shifter - TR-3650

    Great product not a single issue with install. The shifting is sweet, lines up perfect with 3rd every time. It has taken some time to get used to the ease of use after 10 years of the stock shifter.

    trash that stock shifter!

    After being on the fence for a year on weather or not to buy a shifter, I saw this one on sale. I wished I hadnt waited! It truely is amazing the gain in control you gain over the power of the car with just a shifter install! While 1-2 shifts are shorter the best improvement is 2-3 shift and the overall feel of control of the power. Installation is pretty quick as well taking me about 45 min or so to install.

    SR Short Throw in 03 Mach 1

    This shifter greatly reduces throw and is much firmer than stock. I was not happy with it at first because it was very notchy trying to get it into gears. I really had to push. After a couple days of driving it loosened up and is great. The install was very easy (45 min), just wish there was a rubber spacer between the shifter handle and the rest of the assembly like there is on the stock shifter. A lot more tranny vibrations in this shifter. Other than that, great product at an unbeatable price!

    Very Positive Feel

    This shifter is every bit as good as one that you will spend $50 more on. No slop, strong centering spring, very straight into gear. Missing 3rd will no longer be an issue, as it was with the stock shifter. For the price, well worth it. Installation was rather easy. No need to use the stops on the TR-3650, it has internal stops. The best way to get the old shifter out is by putting the stock shift knob back on and pulling back as if you were going from 3rd to 4th gear. Good product.

    Great Shifter!

    I installed this shifter on my '04 GT. Installation is a piece of cake, the only slight struggle was getting the old shifter out. If you have trouble just bolt your handle back on the old shifter after you have removed everything and give it a yank, it comes right out. I used RTV to seal the new shifter to the transmission. The intstall took about 30 minutes to complete. I did end up cutting 1/2" off the threads of the new shift lever so there are not threads showing below the lock nut. I put the white ball on and it looks sweet! Shifts are short, tight and positive. I installed a Pro 5.0 shifter on my '98 GT several years ago and this is every bit as good a shifter. This is a great shifter and you can't beat the price.

    Perfect!

    I was weary about this with it being cheaper and some people on a forum saying "STEEDA" but this SR has been awesome. I've driven a little over 250 miles with it and I absolutely love it. It has stoppers to reduce/increase the throw and it feels great. I put a white retro ball shift knob on this thing and could not be happier with it. It is shorter but also adjustable so you can make it what you want. It went in as easy as any short shifter on a Mach 1 does. I would buy this again if I ever had to.

    Much More Sturdy Shifter

    I highly recommend buying this short shifter. There is no comparison between the OEM shifter and this. I could have bought a different lever to change the length of my shifter but instead I bought this shifter. There is zero play when in neutral or in gear. This is also much more sturdy and made much better than the original. Took me about 2 hours the first time I put it in and only about an hour now if have to take it back out to fill the transmission with fluid. The lever is much shorter than I expected. I would guess it's about 4" shorter than the OEM shift lever. I do recommend buying the shifter gasket set, though.

    Displeased.

    I've had this SR STS installed for over two months, no issues until today when driving back home, the shifter became lose and was unable to shift. Thankfully I was next to a parking lot and had my tools with me to fix this major issue. Not ever buying anything from SR. Horrible products; very displeased.

    Shortened shifts but poor centering

    I bought this in December and have had it installed until today (7-7) and while i drive it daily in traffic this weekend was my first real trip with the car. The shifts are short if you can get it to complete a shift. It would hang, jam, and sometimes over shift 3rd. Initially i just thought my tranny was gonna quit so, today i went back to the very played out stock shift and its like a whole new car. No more binding, or HARD shifts, or over throwing 3rd. My last complaint is the centering spring did keep it stiff however, if do not assist with aligning for 3rd, as a matter of fact it centered right in the middle of the H so when shifting hard for 3rd you had better know where youre going. If I keep the car I will go with another brand.

      That's not something we have heard previously in regards to this shifter. I'd suggest giving our customer service a call when you have a minute so we can try to determine the cause and get this resolved for you quickly.

    Great Shifter

    I bought this shifter about 3 months ago and i love it. i'll be honest, i bought this one instead of the steeda tri ax because of the price. just saving a few bucks. and it really is a good short shifter. getting the old one out was a little work (it had many many many miles on it though) lol all in all great product. thanks AM!

    Great

    I installed this shifter today in my car. Getting the old stuff out is the hardest part. Make sure you have extensions for your wrench when you do the install. The shifter is tight and has short throws. It is amazing how sloppy the factory shifter is compared to this one. I would recommend it.

    Short Shift Fun!

    This Short Throw Shifter is perfect for my late model 03 GT. I love this kit and the ability to shift so easily and quickly makes a world of difference either getting on that throttle or in dense traffic. The actual install took me about a hour n a half. It is easy to do and you will need the gasket sealer which can be picked up at any store similar to Advanced Auto Parts.

    Short throw shifter

    This is my first short throw shifter so I am not going to bash it because it might be working by design. As aways AM provided a great price and fast delivery. Product is nice good quality. Very easy to install I would recommend the gasket. This item is shorter than stock so I had to move my seat up. Going from 1st to 4th is very simple and nice. Down shifting is where I have the issue 3rd to 2nd and reverse. For me it takes a lot of arm. Not sure if once it wares in it will get better or if I get a different longer arm. Or this could be by design. Over all a really good product. I only have 20 miles on it so maybe something I have to get use to
