    Built for Accurate Shifts. Featuring an all-new design, the Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter is engineered to deliver 25% throw reduction, allowing you to perform short, effortless shifts in your manual 2015-2018 Ford Mustang GT. Built as a dual mounting shifter that meets your shifting preferences, it features adjustable side-to-side spring pressure for an impeccable 2-3 shift every time. Moreover, the shifter's 3-bushing system is designed to help you achieve optimum shift accuracy, one of the most precise possible in the market today.

    Beautifully Crafted. Delivering a solid upgrade, this Hybrid 3 Short Throw Shifter is crafted from CNC machined billet aluminum and stainless steel. The housing is weather tight and pre-sealed and the solid front bushing and rear bracket will help minimize vibration that go through the shifter and stop most of the deflection.

    Dual Mounting Option. The Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter features a distinctive linkage configuration that can be mounted as a solid linkage with the transmission mount. Otherwise, you can also remove the transmission mount and install the shifter directly to the body as a pivot. This hybrid design is intended to afford you flexibility that meets your individual needs.

    Application. The Barton Hybrid 3 Short Shifter is designed to fit 2015-2018 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.

    What are the differences between body mounted and trans mounted?

    WarrenD

    • Mounting the Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter to the transmission will link the shifter with the transmission more soundly, allowing for more accurate, crisper shifting, however being mounted directly to the transmission, this will transmit more noise and vibration to the shifter handle and cabin. Mounting with the body mounts will not provide as smooth and crisp of shifts as trans mounting, but will not significantly increase vehicle noise and vibrations.

    KennyG

    • The Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter is not compatible with Ecoboost Mustangs. The 2015BMEB-1 linked below would be the correct shifter for Ecoboost and V6 Models. https://www.americanmuscle.com/barton-short-shifter-2015v6eco.html

      This is what your drivetrain should feel like

      Got my Barton shifter installed in the Mustang today. It is like the entire drivetrain was replaced. Shifts are solid, no flex in the system, throws are much shorter and faster with positive lock into gear. Had the new shifter transmission mounted instead of body mounted. Incredible difference in the feel of the transmission (GT) The mechanic had to pull the drive shaft, drop half the exhaust then they could lower the transmission to get the new one installed. Glad I had a professional do it. Best upgrade to date. Old junk out, new shifter installed. I have built a few cars, but this is not something I would have wanted to tackle without a car lift. Took them about 3 hours to install. Very tight space, worth every dollar.

      A nice Must Do upgrade

      This is a really nice shifter, I have it trans mounted with springs in, and it's way better than the stock shifter. The shorter throw makes quite the difference. With the springs in, it is quite stiff, but you get use to it, and they will break in.

      Amazing

      Can tell a world of difference. The stock shifter on the S550 is horrible! Mostly first and second gear. This right here eliminates all of that! Worth the money and if you have a lift it’s extremly easy to install.

      I don't get the hype

      Really, its ok. Just ok. I don't understand all of the stellar reviews. The shifter still feels clunky, but slightly less so. the throw is a bit shorter. I decided to replace this after I broke one of the retaining clips in the lockout collar while installing the e-brake boot. This is an expensive part for mediocre results.

      WELL SPENT MONEY!

      Body mounted because during the install, I didn't install the screws before bolting things up. Got to lazy to take it apart for trans-mount. However, my baby is my daily driver for roughly 80 miles a day. Body mount gives you that stock feel, no vibration, and like many says 'shifts like butter'. The weights are a must, after a few days (remember, daily for 80 miles) you get used to it and it softens up. Engagement, engagement, engagement! I drive hard in certain areas and I have yet to miss any gears. Added the insert for additional support but this shifter, this beautiful shifter is what the Mustang needs and is well work the price tag! Took off the factory exhaust to install the Magnaflow. Took about 6-8 hours doing it slowly. I have fairly large arms/hands, so be warned very tight squeeze. Would I do it again, heck yes! Would I install this for a friend, you betcha. Will I buy something other than Barton (MGW), for a daily that will see time a strip and track, this bad boy is all you need! Enjoy.

      Worth the money!

      Its a solid mount shifter, what else is there to say? Install was a 6 hour endeavor with a lift but worth the effort. The CJ pony parts video on YT was very helpful. Didnt have to remove the exhaust or DS for this task. Be careful with the tool to remove the reverse lockout spring retaining pin, i snapped the screw because it wasnt lined up. As far as results, well, its been two weeks after the install and have had no high rpm lockout. Shifts smooth and solid. Added NVH with the solid mount config but i personally enjoy it, feels old school. Cant go wront when your shifter and transmission are in sync. Enjoying the shorter throws as well, considerably less effort shifting. Highly recommend this system from Barton.

      Quality product!!

      As soon as you open the package you’ll notice the amazing engineering that went into this product. Night and day difference from stock. Install was surprisingly very easy, there was more room to work with then what I had thought. Used jack stands and only had to lift the front. Gears go in so much smoother and firmer now, i recommend putting in all of the springs then waiting for them to break in as they do feel great once broken in.

      Great shifter, whole new feel

      I love this shifter. The car has a new feel, more solid, tighter and way less noise. I went with the body mount because that seemed to be where Barton threw all the tech. They’re trying to get a patent for the linkage. The install took some patience. The space is tight but you just have to take your time and not rush. I’m new to the garage but in the end I figured it out. I debated taking it to a shop but I’m glad I installed it myself. Barton doesn’t give instructions but they do have a helpful video. I watched that and CJ Pony parts’ video. Still, I wish there were written instructions. All in all, the car feels like a more solid, expensive car. I’d get this again in heart beat.

      High performance shifter

      This shifter is a must for your stang, takes away all the slop of your stock shifter. Makes driving fun. I installed to trans and u can definitely hear more NVH when you accelerate on 3rd, and 4th, but if you don't like it install with body mount. High quality performance with driving . I highly recommend to do this MOD. you won't regret it.

      Blown away how good this shifter is!!!!

      Installation took me 4 hours in my garage on jack stands by myself. Removal of the stock shifter was not too bad, one bolt holding the shifter body was a PITA to get out as was installing that very same bolt onto the Barton shifter. Its just a bit long and you have to undo the trans mount, and pull down on the trans to get clearance. Other then that the installation really was not that bad. I did not remove the console, drop the exhaust or drive shaft. I also chose to trans mount the shifter which does give you a small amount of vibration in the shifter handle where as the body mount does not. I have a 1970 Mustang with a old Hurst shifter. If you want to feel vibration in the shifter drive that car!!! This is a very very small amount which does not bother me. The shifter is just amazing!! Throws are short and feel great! No slop what so ever!! Materials are fantastic and fit is absolutely perfect! I used both springs that stiffen up the shifts and that also is great! Banging 2nd to 3rd is soooooo easy just push forward! Best upgrade so far, made a fun car even more fun to drive!!!

      Just do it, you won't regret it

      Makes a world of difference in feel of driving. Almost like it's a much more expensive vehicle. Let my boss check it out and he loves it. He drives a Hennessy Camaro and commented how much better of a feel then it is from his car. Not like that matters but it's not necessarily just HP's that make a car feel like a great sports car, other tactile feelings play a big part. Mines trans mounted and I love it.

      Difficult install, great shifter

      Installed myself on jack stands in my garage. The install was very time consuming, but this was the first time I installed a shifter on a car. A lot of the bolts are difficult to reach and there is not much room to get your hands around anything. The install will try your patience. I would highly recommend that you have swivels with built in sockets (regular swivels to which you attach a socket to are too long and essentially useless). The shifter on the other hand is like a night and day difference, it is so much better. There is no slop in the shifter anymore. I also used to get locked out of gear under wide open throttle, now there is no problem in any gear. I did install the shifter mounted directly to the transmission. There defenetly is more vibration, noise, and rattle under certain rpm ranges, but it isn’t that bad. If I had to do it again, I would get this shifter, I would just make sure I have a second pair of hands and better swivels.

      The way to go

      I did much research. It was between this or Steeda. Im sure the Steeda is a great product as well but i mounted this to the trans. Way stiffer than stock. The inner workings of this assembly is absolute quality with added options of how you want to mount and how stiff you want the feel to be with extra springs in the cartridge. Bang for buck awesome purchase. You wont be disappointed.
