    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'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

    • 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.

    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.

    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?

    • 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.

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

    • 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 was Looking to purchase a Barton short throw shifter within the next few days. Although I would like to know the difference between the BARTON Short throw shifter single and two-post bracket.

    • Your question was cut off but Barton is the best shifter on the market. It's the same one as Ford Motor sports but that one is more expensive for the same product.

    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? 1 answer

      CLICK CLICK BOOM!

      After a lot of research on other brands I went with the Barton Short Throw Shifter with the two post bracket. I paired it with their pistol grip handle and boy what a difference! Should have come from Ford like this! Seen other reviews about noise and vibration but I can honestly say the vibration is the same. I have long tubes and pype bomb exhaust so I cant say anything about noise. Love the notchy crisp feel to each shift! CLICK! CLICK! and BOOM you're off! Puts the factory shifter to shame. Buy this!

      Barton Short Throw

      Nice product. Well constructed and aligned perfectly with all OEM components. Installation is a tad tricky working around the exhaust, but a nice set of ratcheting wrenches does the trick. Shifts are much shorter and crisper with far less deflection. Reverse is a little hard to engage, but I hope that loosens up over time. Would highly recommend his product even if your not looking for performance. Makes rowing gears down the highway much more fun.

      great upgrade

      I'm glad I waited to write a review. Initially I thought the shifter worked great, but the noise was making me want to return it. Fast forward a couple hundred miles later and the noise is pretty much gone. I've never heard of a shifter needing to be broken in, but I guess it broke in. Easy installation in about an hour and we'll worth the money in my opinion.

      A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The install was straight forward. Fit and finish are top quality. Significant reduction in throw, each shift very definitive, and such an improvement over the stock shifter. Well worth it!

      Why doesn't it come from the factory like this??

      WOW! What a difference. Significantly smoothens and reduces shift throws. I had a hard time figuring out what justifies the "two post bracket" before ordering, so I wanted to explain that real quick: The two post bracket replaces the factory bracket (which is a piece of thin metal with two zip ties holding on a rubber inert to hold the shifter assembly box in place) the oem bracket is really shotty and allows a lot of movement and play. The two post bracket is super solid and sturdy and feels like a race-car grade part, and allows drastically less movement of the shifter assembly under force. It took my friend and I a little less than an hour to install this Shifter, we had the privilege of using a lift. I'd also recommend ordering the upgraded gasket along with this, the one it comes with is very thin like the oem gasket. A little expensive, but if you want the best go ahead and order it. You get what you pay for, and it should have come from the factory like this in my opinion.

      This is a great add on, and probably should be standard from the factory, but it is worth the $$$ The only issue I had was getting the reverse lock out working properly Other than that, I LOVE IT!

      Shifter upgrade

      The Barton shifter delievered as stated, shorter shifts and much tighter feel. The install was easy and quick except for the dust boot which took about 20min. Quality is top notch especially against the OEM shifter. More noise in the cabin as the shifter is mounted against the body. That I don't care for, so a hybrid shifter in the future? A fresh fluid change is next to try since it's needed, but there seems to be no quick fix. The journey continues.

      Rad shifter!

      Makes a world of difference when banging through the gears. Throws are significantly shorter and grips right in. It does take some getting use to when going into reverse but otherwise a great choice for manual shifters.

      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.
