      Review & Installation Video

      Hey everybody, Dave here from, 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.

        Shorter throw.

        I did this with a clutch upgrade but the shift feels really good! Takes a little over an hour.

        BUYER BEWARE!!

        My Barton shifter snapped off in my hand while shifting as I entered the highway, at highway speed. After removing the boot it was clear that the shifter itself had snapped in half, just above where it met the housing. I uninstalled the bracket as well, which I noticed had a fracture in the gasket. Zero support/response from Barton or AM about this. When it worked, it worked great. Crisp, mechanical throws which I miss. Maybe I just got a bad one, who knows.

        Must get

        Love this thing, shift feels stiffer, whole car feels more fun to drive, I will say this, make sure you get that boot all the way around the base of that shifter or you're going to struggle to get into reverse

        Nice addition to the driving experience.

        I first installed the Barton billet bracket. It tightened up the shifting. However I was not completely satisfied with the shifting performance. The installation of this shifter really complemented the performance of the drivetrain. The only drawback is this shifter is very difficult to get into reverse. I know that is a problem that plagues short throw shifter, but I thought that I would mention it.

        Great shifter! Shifts are very crisp! Took about 2 1/2 hours at most from start to finish but that's because of me. Most people can do it less time but I'm satisfied with the job I did. Shifter feels great. Kinda tricky sometimes to get in reverse but that's just me again. Lol I would recommend this shifter to anyone!

        Smooth shifts, absolutely amazing to use, can be a slight bit difficult to install, but other than that it’s an amazing part and would definitely recommend to anyone that wants a solid short throw

      Just got a 14 v6 6 speed. Im older so im wont be racing much if any. Stock shifter from day 1 I could tell was junk. As a everyday driver would just the shifter be enough? Do I need the bracket/gasket? thank you Any other suggestions are welcome also

      • This is a great choice for a shifter for everyday use. You get more preciseshifting, and of course, if you ever do want to bang through the gears quicker this would be a much better option to stock as there is less play between gears.

      Does this come with a replacement gasket or does one need to be ordered separately?

      • The Barton Industries Short Shifter would not come with a gasket with the shifter.

      Why during the shifter installation is it necessary to remove the rear shifter bracket nuts? It's not a problem to do that but I am curious.

      • Hi, The reason Barton has you remove the shifter bracket nuts is to make the the install of this Barton Industries Short Shifter - MT-82 much easier if you do not remove the bracket nuts you will have to use a lot more force to get this shifter in.
