    Hey everybody, Dave here from AmericanMuscle.com, and as you can see I have with me the Barton Industries short throw shifter, designed specifically for the manual 2011 and newer Mustangs. Now, a short throw shifters idea is to shorten the amount of time between shifts, this particular product, as we’re going to find out later when we install it, claims to reduce your shift time by 40% over stock, making it a pretty remarkable product if it holds up. Now, this part goes right in place with no major or permanent modifications to your factory shifter. If you ever wanted to go back to stock you certainly could, but with a unit like this, you’re probably not going to want to. We’re going to install this in our 2011 GT today and take it out for a test drive. First things first then, let’s get a stock run with the stock parts on the car to see what that feels like. That second to third gear is just not crisp, it’s a little tricky really, had to hang onto the clutch a little longer than I would have liked to, and third to fourth just flat out feels far and long, not horrible, but not really a fan. We just got back from our stock run with what we felt like a luxury shift that was already installed from the factory, at this point we’re going to go ahead and remove that, we’re going to take our Barton Industries short throw shifter and get this installed in our 2011 GT. We’ll take it back out, get your honest opinion, once again. So we’re taking our 2011 manual 50 back out now with our Barton Industries short throw shifter installed. Something you’ll notice about this shifter right out of the gate is how much shorter it is from the console, I happen to really like that look and get the sporty look back in the interior. I’m also a big fan of how it feels just ripping through the gears real quick pulling out of the parking lot. Really liking what I feel so far going into third gear, not just from second to third but even down shifting from fourth to third, very crisp and it really helps me know that I’m in the gear. Here we go, look at how quick that was, right into fourth gear, no hesitation, no delay, no question. This is a great product, greatly reduces the throw and the distance, greatly reduces my time between shifts and confidence is always there. Very impressed with removing our stock shifter and installing the Barton Industries short throw shift on our 2011 manual 50. Well the verdict is in after our test drive, and the Barton Industries short throw shifter for the 2011 and newer Mustang manuals, big two thumbs up. Not only utilizing that reverse lockout that I never questioned whether I was in first gear, or reverse, but the amount of reduction between first and second, and the aid from second to third that I received from this shifter, was second to none. We gave it a rave review and we think that for your dollar, a Barton Industries short throw shifter, is a great way to go.

    Smoother, Firmer Shifts. By combining a Barton Industries MT-82 Short Shifter and two post shifter bracket you will enjoy smoother, faster shifting while you're banging through the gears. This two post bracket and short shifter replaces your weak factory setup that can allow deflection during spirited driving and power shifting, causing slow or even missed shifts.

    40% Shorter Throw. Using a Dual Pivot Trunnion design the Barton Short Throw Shifter allows for a 40% reduction in throw with only minimal loss of the neutral left to right throw. All while preserving the factory shifter ergonomics for a comfortable ride. 

    Retains Reverse Lock-out. The Barton Industries Short Throw Shifter was specifically designed to retain the Back Up Camera and the Reverse Lock-out safety feature of the 2011 manual Mustangs to prevent accidentally shifting into reverse.

    Superior Construction. Machined from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel, for solid construction, this short throw shifter and two post shifter bracket installs easily with NO permanent modifications required to your Mustang.

    Application. This Barton Industries shifter and two post bracket is specifically designed for the 2011-2014 V6, GT and BOSS 302 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's the difference between the shifter with the bracket and without it? I have a 2012 Mustang V6 Manual.

    ActorMike

    • Hello! The shifters are the same but the Barton Industries Two-Post Shifter Bracket replaces the factory bracket, which is weak and prone to deflection during spirited driving and power shifting, causing slow or even missed shifts.

    I have a 2014 5.0 with the 401(a) package, will I need to purchase a shift boot retainer or a new shift knob?

    Dylan

    • With this short shifter you will not need to purchase a new boot retainer or knob as they both will work with the new shifter.

    I've been reading the reviews and questions, and I have a few questions and concerns. Does this set up come with the gasket required to replace? I read in the questions and answers another gasket is recommended so I'm curious is the gasket that comes with this set up no good? Also I read allot of reviews that say that it's really difficult to get into reverse with this shifter? Another question is, is this shifter overly noisy and or will I hear noise coming from the transmission? Thanks! Joe

    JoeM

    • The Barton Industries Short Shifter and Two-Post Bracket will include the shifter base gasket. No other gaskets should be required for installation. The shifter, like most aftermarket shifters will require more effort to put into reverse. Keep in mind, 11-12 and 13-14 used two different heights for the reverse lockout, this can be adjusted by rotating the shifter handle 360 degrees after loosening the bolt securing it. With the Two post bracket, this will be more directly tied to the chassis, and will transmit more road noise and vehicle vibration to the shifter handle.

    How does this shifter perform compared to the newer Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter?

    KarlT

    • This Barton Industries Short Shifter and Two-Post Bracket will have a 15% more throw reduction than the Barton hybrid shifter. However, the Hybird shifter will be much more secure.

    Does the install require silicone and or gasket?

    ink

    • The Barton Industries Short Shifter and Two-Post Bracket for the MT-82, does require a gasket for the shifter-base/shifter turret. The gasket will be sufficient to create a perfect seal, and silicone will not be required. The shifter comes with the gasket, so you should not need to source any gasket.

    I installed this shifter with the two post bracket today. I gave it a quick drive around the block to see how it felt. It felt much better than stock and there was no noticeable increase in transmission noise. Later I drove the car for about twenty minutes and by the end of my trip gears 1-4 would make a lot of noise, almost like a swooshing sound every time you shifted. I checked the rubber boot underneath the center console and it was on right. Any other suggestions to reduce the noise?

    Tyd123

    • I suggest taking your car to a shop to make sure everything is working properly with the transmission. Once the shifter is installed, there should not be any noise made by it when you shift into gears.

      It's an awesome product by Barton Industries. All the noise comments I've heard they must have installed wrong. No tapping or any noise and reverse isn't any different from stock(maybe I ate my cheerios) positive shifts are definitely there. No more missed gears

      Barton short throw shifter and 2 post bracket

      I installed these together this summerin my 2011 Mustang gt. After watching you tube how to video, i decided to do myself. Install was pretty much right on 2-1/2 hrs start to finish, including putting car up on jackstands, removing and cleanup. Big improvement all around. Shifter is very tight and notchy feel to it. Reverse takes a bit more effort to get in now than before, but also to get out of reverse. For me having rowed 4 spd hursts in muscle cars for years, i found i was trying to over shift at first, the throws are so short it took a bit getting used too. Bang for buck? Yes . Ime going back to the original shift knob too. I actually preferred the smoothness of the original shifter but it was too sloppy even after poly graphite bushing i put in the shifter bracket.

      Great Throw Reduction Stiffened Feel, Some Noise

      For my 2014 Mustang V6 Perf Pack, I was deciding between the Barton STS Two-Post Bracket or the MGW shifter; after reading about significant installation difficulty with the MGW and good reviews of the Barton, I went for the Barton option. Installation wasn't bad, but would've been easier if the car was on a lift (I had it on ramps, which just barely gave me enough room to crawl underneath); roughest part was getting the Two-Post Bracket into place and starting the nuts. Finished product is about what I expected; it has short throws and a pleasantly stiff feel with positive gear engagement. I wish it felt a bit more "metallic", aka had a more pronounced sound when slotting into each gear, but it's overall much better than the stock shifter. The only downside I've noticed is that this shifter transmits drivetrain noise if you have any pressure on it, aka when preparing to make a shift or executing the shift. Not overwhelming, but it's there. The trade off is worth it to me, shifts are dramatically better.

      Love it

      Love the fact that you can feel each gear as u shift, great reduction in throw, and no more hitting reverse when trying to take off from the stop lights. Not hard to install and like the fact you have to apply a decent amount of pressure downwards to get it in reverse.

      Great Shifter

      Shifts are crisp and clean. HUGE improvement over the stock shifter. Under hard acceleration going from first to second gear was a pain on the stock shifter. This guy gets into it into gear quick. The reduction in throw is very noticeable. Bottom line is this, this shifter makes the car more fun to drive.

      It is what it says it is

      This shifter is easy to install and reduces my shifts greatly! It feels better in general than the stock shifter. One of the main reasons I purchased the bracket as well was bc the mt82 transmission has a problem with locking out third gear under torque, with this setup it has only tried to lock me out once and I was still able to get it in so a huge improvement there!

      Much improved shifting

      After installing the first time, reverse was extremely hard to engage and needed a firm movement to get back into neutral. After scouring the Internet, the rubber inner boot might not be installed correctly. R moved mine and reinstalled it to be sure that the bottom of the boot was in the machined slot at the bottom of the shifter. After buttoning up the center console, retried the shifter and now it's perfect. Nice short throws and you know definitely what gear you're in. Recommended upgrade to your stock manual transmission.

      The Best

      Hands down, this is the best addition to my ride yet. Easy to install if you watch all the videos on YouTube. Shifts so smooth and fast, so much fun to drive my GT now. Stock shifter was a piece of garbage compared to this. Make sure you get the boot down around the flange. If you dont, it will mess up the smooth shift. I drove around awhile before I set it. It got hot and soft and went right around the flange. I also put in more heat/sound installation. Makes a big difference. Enjoy my friends!!!!

      Firm and Short

      I have had this product for a number of months now and I don't regret it a single bit. It provides a shorter shift as mentioned in the title and a firmer shift, meaning no play such as in the stock shifter. You don't miss gears if you know how to drive. Some people complain about reverse is hard to get into...what I will say is you are not always driving in reverse unless you are as good as Vin Diesal and the amount of force it takes a toddler can do. I would buy it again if I purchased another vehicle.
