    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.

    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.

    What's the difference between the shifter with the bracket and without it? I have a 2012 Mustang V6 Manual.

    • 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.

    any difference in feel between this and the "standard" new style barton mount?

    jessem

    • Yes, but only under heavy acceleration or very hard shifting. The two post bracket by Barton is constructed in such a way that it transfers the rotational freedom that was allowed by the original bracket (although not much with the poly bushing) to strictly linear freedom. What this means to the driver is that all of the rotational motion that causes missed shifts is eliminated with the two post bracket. In other words, under hard acceleration you can rip through the gears without the fear of missing the notorious 2-3 shift on the MT-82.

    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.

      Clean crisp shifting

      Taking my Roush to the next level of fun, I installed the Barton shifter and bracket. I was impressed with the Craftsmanship of the product and the instructions for the installation of the shifter was very detailed for the 2014 application. The combination of the bracket and stuffing up the rest of the suspension has made a slight increase in the noise transfer from the transmission, but if I was looking for a quite ride, I would have bought a luxury car. This is the best accessory that I have installed to this point. I looked at the Ford Performance shifter and bracket and they were identical without the extra. Very satisfied.

      2014 Mustang GT Barton Shifter

      This shifter operates nicely. You can feel a huge difference in the quality of shifting. Very nice "I am in gear" feeling. You will have to put this in gear, it does not fall into gear. The shift from 2 to 3 feels like it guides you. I did install the two post bracket also. I tested the shifting going around hard corners to see if I could simulate the 2 to 3 lockout I experienced with the stock shifter. So far everything has been good. I do hear more noise under the vehicle. I suspect this could be because the two post bracket does not have isolators, unless I just missed them. This sounds like the gears in the transmission turning, and that sound is transfering. I really do not mind hearing my car talk to me. This is one of the reasons for the Flowmasters.

      Short is right!

      Installation was fairly simple and straight forward. Shifting from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd are far better than factory. Shifter is very quick and precise. Shifting into reverse takes some effort, but I may just need to realign the rubber boot. Definitely recommend this product! If I did it again, I would probably remove the drive shaft during installation.

      Barton shifter and Bracket

      I recently bought the Barton short shifter and two post bracket. I installed it myself in about an hour and a half. I've had it on for about two weeks now, and I love it. Compared to the stock shifter it is like night and day. It has much shorter shifts, and has no play in it like the stock shifter. Reverse is going to take a little getting used to, because everything is so tight now. But all in all I love it, haven't missed a gear shifting in the car since I put it in. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

      Ridiculously great shifter

      I have had this shifter in my 2013 GT for 5 years. It is super short throw and is as smooth as a video game shifter. I get in other cars with short throw shifters and they feel sloppy and have long throws. This is still going strong 50,000 miles later. Buy one. It takes a bit of mechanical skill and the right tools to install. I have the upgraded interior so I had to get a shifter boot and knob from Ford. It looks totally custom but also like it belongs there.

      Best Upgrade so Far

      Out of all the upgrades I have done so far this is my favorite. This is miles better than the stock shifter and has a very gratifying click when going into gear. Going through the gears is a breeze and I never have any second guesses anymore when shifting from 3rd to 4th. My only regret is bot buying this sooner.

      Barton short shifter

      I’ve had the shifter and bracket installed for about a week on my 2014 GT and it performs as described. Shorter throw and much more positive shifts over stock shifter. After paying for install, it was expensive but no regrets. Very happy with the results. Firm, positive, and confidence inspiring.

      Huge improvement!

      I purchased the Barton short throw shifter and bracket in order to improve upon the stock shifter. It turned out to be a HUGE improvement. Installation was very simple but you will need to lift the car enough to replace the bracket. The install took about 45 minutes give or take. Two things to be very aware of though. One, don't over tighten the shifter base nuts. The gasket will "squirt" out between the base and the trans tunnel. Also, if you are installing this in a '14 GT, read the instructions in the box closely, or you will create a lot more work for yourself due to the reverse lock out not working properly. I've had it in the Mustang for a couple of weeks now and am extremely happy. Reduced the throw dramatically and makes shifts very positive. Very well built upgrade and I would recommend it to any one with a MT-82 equipped Mustang.
