    Review & Install Video

    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.

    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 installs easily with NO permanent modifications required to your Mustang.

    Application. This Barton Industries shifter is specifically designed for the 2011-2013+ V6 and GT 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.

    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.

    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.

      Great Quality

      This is a very nicely built shifter. Fits perfectly in place of stock, and does keep the reverse lock out which is extremely comforting. Only reason I gave it four stars is because neither Barton or Americanmucle had instructions on how to install. I had to go to another website to find the instructions.

      No more 3rd gear lockout

      Just installed this shifter and wish I had done it years ago. The shifts are right on the money everytime. Even 2nd to 3rd at high rpm is easy. Not bad to install, I have access to a lift so that helps because the hardest part is getting under the car and removing the bracket if you dont have a lift. ONLY reason its not 5 stars is because when taking it out of reverse its a little stiff. Not a big deal though. Two thing to make sure of is to make sure you put the bottom hole of the rubber boot around the groove that is all the way around the bottom of the shifter, this takes a little stretching and finesing of the bottom opeing of the rubber boot but it will go on you just have to be patient and dont skip this step or you will have issues. Also make sure you remove the plastic cap bushing that is attached to the bottom ball of the factory shifter and install it onto the ball of the new shifter before installing it. Put a little coating of white grease on that plastic bushing for easier reinstallation of the new shifter. I also installed an sr performance gasket for the shifter to replace the factory gasket, it helps reduce nvh. Extremely happy with the way it shifts now. Like a whole different world now.

      Crisp and controlled!

      Initially I replaced only the shifter bracket in an attempt to take the slop out of the stock shifter since the stock bracket is literally thin stamped steel with some squishy rubber ZIP-TIED to it. To that end I used the Barton 2 piece bracket with tremendous results. That being said I felt more could be done and bought the shifter. I should have done both from the start! This shifter combined with the bracket should be the picture next to the words crisp, controlled, and satisfying in the dictionary all at the same time. There is a slight catch on 1st to 2nd as it clears the reverse gate but everything after that is awesome. No longer do I feel like I'm cycling gears in a old 80s ranch truck. Now I'm losing less rpm between gears and have more confidence that I'll find the gear with minimal effort. Flick of the wrist and gone!

      Got to get this

      The shifter to make your Mustang feel like the performance car it is. It cut my 0-60 and it will yours too. By far the best thing you can do for the Coyote engine to help it perform like it wants to. No more third does work or it refuses to accept access. It a click click click as the gears are used.

      The best hands down

      This has to be one of the best shifters on the market. I had a steeda and it's nothing compared to this bad boy. No more faulty shifts into reverse when trying to take off from a light... It's awesome! You can feel every shift, the smoothness of the shifts, and the quickness. I'm super thrilled with my find and purchase. Thank you Barton! You guys rock!!

      Great upgrade

      It took a while to throw it on but once its on you'll be happy with the outcome. It reduced the throw by what seems like half of the stock shifter. The only down fall is that the spring to push it into reverse is pretty stiff. I'm th8nking about doing a customer mod and replacing the spring. Going to the hardware store soon

      Best shifter for the money

      I coupled this shifter with the blowfish bracket and solved 90 of my lock and miss shift problems over the stock shifter. The install was difficult due to the extremely tight space between the transmission and body.

      Upgrade

      Hello everyone. Just got this installed today in my 2013. I am very impressed on how much better it is shifting. I thought the stock shifter was great. But WOW how wrong I was. The Barton short shifter is like 100 better. Just like to thank American muscle for this product. They were very helpful on the phone.

      Great Shifter

      I purchased the Barton 2 Post Bracket about a year ago and loved it. I finally decided to bite the bullet and get the shifter too. I should have gotten the shifter when I got the bracket, the shifter is awesome! I installed it myself in a couple hours. I took a long time making sure I replaced the rubber shifter boot properly. I have no noticible increase in noise or vibration. I'm putting together a YouTube video of the install. I Love the way the the the shifter snicks into gear. The short throws are very crisp and accidental Reverse engagement at stoplights is gone for good. I would highly recommend this shifter.

      Big improvement over stock.

      The Barton was a little stiff for the first few days which is good as it has tight tolerances. It shifts miles better than the stock 2011 5.0 shifter and feels like a formula car. Yes, I know they use paddles now but you get what I mean. Huge improvement and a reasonable price.

      Excellent Precision Shifter

      The Barton shifter combined with the shifter bracket is very precise. The slop that sometimes prevented a smooth 3-4 shift under load is totally gone. I previously had a Steeda shifter that claims ~20 throw reduction. I think they say that because the Steeda shifter is just a bit shorter. This Barton shifter really is a 40 reduction. The shifts are just a tight click. I can't say enough about it. Totally worth every penny.
