Is this even needed in Boss 302? I have the 2012 Boss 302. Everything I have read says it is the best shifting Mustang out there. Would this benefit my Boss any?


  • The BOSS might be the best-shifting Mustang out there, but I can guarantee you this shifter bracket will still make the shifting action 100% better. There is still plenty of room for improvement.

    How shifting should feel.

    Not too difficult to install just as long as you have a long enough extension. I can shift with so much more confidence now that i can actually feel the gears go in. The shifts are a bit louder than the stock but that id the great thing about it. If you dont like the feel or sound after you install this bracket, then you have bought the wrong car.

    Well made part !

    I have been a certified machinist for 40 years. I purchased a Barton shifter bracket to go with the Barton shifter I also bought. This is a beautifully made piece. I was going to make a bracket but once I saw how well the Barton was made, and the price of it I said to myself it is hardly worth the effort to make one myself. This is a very well made piece. The fit and finish are beautiful. It goes on with no problem. A little hard to tighten some of the allen screws but doable in less than an hour. The shifter and bracket have made my transmission shift much more deliberately. There is no play in my shifter and getting into any gear is easy. I honestly feel as a professional machinist that the Barton shifter bracket is a bargain for the price.There is a little more vibration from the shifter to be expected with a stiffer urethane bushing as opposed to the soft factory rubber bushing. Just gives the car all that much more of a muscle car feel. Definitely a deal. Well worth the asking price and then some !

    Great shift bracket over stock

    Heard alot about this shift bracket via the forums and decided to pull the trigger and get one. Out of the box the piece itself is a work of art. its a shame this has to be on the bottom of your car. But install took all but 40 mins. The first initial things I could tell were more crisper shifts, no slouch as with the stock bracket. I believe its the donut that hold everything in place much better and now i dont grind at all, the shifts go in like they are suppose to. this is the best 80 bucks i spent and it was well worth it.

    A Must Have Upgrade!

    I installed this last night and it's easy to see why this or the Joe Heck Racing bracket makes such a big difference. The stock bracket allows the entire shifter assembly to move around. this can create problems if the engine and transmission are torquing to the side under acceleration because the stock shift bracket creates a mis-alignment since it's so loose and wiggly. The barton/JHR bracket grip the shift assembly MUCH tighter and don't allow the shifter to move at all. the 1-2 shift is much cleaner going into gear, no clunky feel and the 2-3 shift under hard acceleration is now smooth and clean and no longer misses. Overall I'm incredibly satisfied with the performance. The stock shifter now performs wonderfully and there is very minimal drivetrain noise from the more stout bracket. this thing is worth every penny and makes daily driving more enjoyable.

    Barton Review

    This is a great product. Really eliminates sloppy shifting and is a great piece of hardware to go along with the Barton Short Throw Shifter. This has more of a mechanical feel to the shifting. The shifts are much more crisp and engage a hell of a lot better than the stock housing. I'd recommend this to anyone thinking bout improving the stock shifter.

    sweet for the "spirited shifters" out there

    really great product its build very solid, easy to instal it took about 20 minutes to instal. it helps alot for fast shifting and when you put it into gear it almost clunks in like a classic muscle car and without doubt lets you know your where you wanna be, its greatly helped with spirited miss shifts, the stock one litterally made of tin and zip ties and a loose piece of rubber is no comparison. this is for performance or as i like it "spirited shifters". great love it

    no more mushy shifting

    Great product, my stock shifter feels tight now. The shifting is more direct and eliminates the cold start hard shifting. Take note that the shifter will be a bit noiser than it was with the factory bracket, but the trade off is worth it.

    shifter bracket install

    Ok got this and put it on the car this winter. Took 15 minutes at best! Super easy. I did notice a fair amount of noise in the car just rowing through the gears. It is much more controlled or direct now. Not sloppy or mushy like the stock bracket. I then took it back off and put more rubber on the top or the flat part that hits the floor board. Took it out to just where the bolt holes are and "I think it made it quieter inside the car"! Now that sure is subjective but it will not hurt so maybe try it out. I was chatting with a fellow mustang gear head at the local ford store and said he used garden hose rubber washers around the bolts when he installed his! He also put dynamat around the bracket on the underside of the floorboards. his was as quiet as stock to my ears! I plan to crawl back under there this week and add some "Fatmat" to the area and see what happens. Can't hurt. I am very much looking forward to spring to see the affect! So far I love it!

    First of all outstanding service from American Muscle, speedy shipping.The immediate difference you feel in shifting is amazing! No more missing third and it doesn't feel sloppy anymore. It took me about 15 minutes to install on a lift. The hardest part was waiting for the exhaust to cool.

    Replace the factory "exhaust hanger"

    I wanted to replace the rear bracket only at this time, then replace the shifter. There is a huge difference in shift feel - all good. Just look at what you're replacing. Shifts are positive and predictable. Very slight vibration noise - if that little bit bothers you, you bought the wrong car! Plus, Barton products are made here in the US.

    Excellent Piece

    I purchased this bracket to correct the missed shifts from 2 - 3 under "spirited" driving after reading the positive reviews. This Barton bracket has definitely solved that issue. I did not want to replace the whole shifter, as I'm comfortable with the stock throw. After removing the stock bracket and comparing it to the Barton, it's actually comical - a thin piece of metal with roam rubber and some zip ties. I can't believe Ford would actually put a bracket like that on one of their cars... The Barton is a beautifuly crafted piece - made in the USA. Install took 15 minutes, just make sure you have a deep well 10mm socket and about 15" of extension. The hardest part was getting my hands up past my X-pipe and driveshaft to maneuver the pieces and tighten the allen bolts. There is a mild increase in NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness), but I actually like it. Shifts seat firmly and cleanly now, even under hard acceleration. Definitely worth the money!

    I expected more of a difference. But you hardly feel it. Which is a good thing! Basically the shifting just got better. The shifts are more direct and less sloppy.. Slightly more mechanical. Ford should of put this in as a standard item. But I can see why they did what they did. There is slightly more tranny noise, but just a little.

    Exceptionally Well Made & Does the Job!

    Beautifully made part - a shame it hides below the floorboards. Install took a bit of time as I have yet to figure out how to jack up the rear of this 2013 V6 with my one floor jack. Ended up just on the ramps in front. So I was a bit squeezed under there. The OEM support came off after a little fight with that retainer clip. Had to pry that off with a long handled wide blade screwdriver. The Barton part went right on. I applied a tiny bit of silicone lube on the urethane part to help with the assembly. A ball end 3/16" Allen wrench worked well for tightening the four socket head cap screws. Snugged it all up and went for a ride. Fantastic improvement in shifting. Lever 'snicks' right into each gear. A full throttle rev up through 1 -2 - 3 gave absolutely no vagueness trying to get 3rd gear. I don't understand the noise complaints as I found that to be very little different from stock. And no adverse vibration in the shift lever. In sum, a fine part that works well and is worth every dollar spent. One caution - as others have noted it would be easy to break those slender attachment studs by using too big a ratchet handle. I used a 1/4" drive ratchet handle and snugged down the attachment nuts (self - lockers) just fine pulling them to about the same one-handed 'feel' as when I removed 'em earlier. Well done, Barton and American Muscle!

    Very good mod

    I just installed the shifter bracket this evening. Make sure you have the right length extension (at least 10"). The bracket is very high quality and the shifts are crisper than the stock bracket. The shifter is more firm and wont miss gears or grind under hard shifting.

    I strongly recommend it for everyone. This part has to be on every mustang, it's true it helps a lot in racing by shifting faster with not miss shifting, but it also should be used by people who don't race, I feel better shifting now

    This is a night and day difference from the stock bracket. Hard to believe that Ford could not produce a better part than to have zip ties holding the rubber to the bracket. No more shifting issues for me. It is tight and goes right into gear even at 6k RPM's. Installed in my driveway and took maybe 30 minutes from driving up ramps to backing down ramps. This is a must have if you have a 6 speed 10-13 model mustang. Definately recommend!!!
