    Review & Install Video

    This is a Barton Short Throw Shifter with a round handle for the 2005 to 2010 GTs equipped with the TR-3650. You're gonna wanna check out this shifter if you're looking for a short throw shifter upgrade that keeps a stock-like shifter handle, reuses stock shift knob for a stock look, and if you don't mind paying for the quality and the fitment that Barton delivers with its products. The install for this shifter is gonna be a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You can plan on spending about an hour getting this installed. This shifter offers a 36% reduction in throw, which is right up there with most of the other short throw shifter options but a little bit below. Most of your other options out there are giving you a 40% reduction in throw. But I honestly don't think that you guys are gonna notice the 4% difference here, especially when we're talking about this much difference over the stock shifter. A shorter throw means a shorter length between each gear that your shifter and handle have to travel. The thought here is that the shorter distance means faster shifts and better performance. But other than performance, you're also gonna get a totally different feel altogether. This different feel isn't just from the throw reduction, but it's also gonna be from the entire shifter, its construction, the throw reduction, and its bushings. This shifter is completely made from billet aluminum and stainless steel. Now it's typical to see an aftermarket shifter like this made from CNC machined aluminum where you usually see steel instead of stainless steel. This is a solid piece and it has harder poly bushings that aren't gonna allow for as much movement in the shifter. They're also more durable than the stock rubber bushings are. This is gonna give you a more solid feeling, shorter action than the stock shifter can give you. You do have some options when it comes to bushings and short throw shifters. You can go with the spherical bearing or a harder durometer poly bushing like you see in the shifter here. This is a complete kit in a sense that you're gonna get your shifter and the OEM style shift handle. You will reuse your stock shift knob or you can pick one up with the stock 12 x 1.25 thread pattern if you wanted to. When it comes to price, you can expect to pay, right about the $280 mark. This isn't your most expensive option, but there are other more affordable options out there like the SR Performance option or the Hurst Competition Plus Shifter. But the Barton here is known for its quality and fitment. So you know you're getting a good product with this shifter. But if this is a bit too pricey for you, you do have a handful of other options that you can always check out instead. As far as the install goes, this is gonna be a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You can plan on spending about an hour getting this installed. You will need a socket set to complete this install, as well as a screwdriver, of course, a jack and jack stands too or a lift if you're lucky enough to have access to one. You'll start by removing the shift boot and the retainers so you can remove the shifter. The shifter will just come up once the shift knob is out of the way. There are two screws under the boot that you'll need to remove. Then you can remove the center trim by prying on all four corners. The shifter dust cover will come off next. Then you'll move under the car. You'll need to drop the cross-member. Remove the 2 18 millimeter bolts and put the bolts back in a few threads, loosen the 2 other bolts. You'll need this space here to drop the trans a little bit. Next you'll remove the shift linkage nut and pull the linkage out of the shifter and leave it off to the side. Pull the shifter front support bolt and the rear support nuts. Remove the bracket and the clip, and then you'll be ready to pull the stock shifter out through the inside of the car. You'll swap the stock shifter for the Barton shifter and set the Barton into place. Install the linkage in the new shifter, install the new rear bracket, reinstall the front support bolt, and tighten everything down. The dust bolt will go back into place and then you'll be ready to install your handle. Once the handle is installed, you're gonna install the center trim, the shift boot, and the shift knob. That's gonna wrap things up for the Barton Short Throw Shifter for the '05 to '10 GT. And you check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

    36% Shorter Throw. The Barton 5-Speed Short Shifter reduces shifting travel by 36% to provide quicker, more positive shifts, all while preserving the factory shifter ergonomics for a comfortable ride.

    Superior Construction. Made in the USA from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel, for solid construction, this short throw shifter includes higher durometer (harder) bushings that are firmer and much more durable over the standard stock rubber bushings.

    Complete Kit. The Barton Industries Shifter Kit comes complete and includes the Shifter, an OEM style shift handle, and reuses the stock shift ball. The included shift handle has a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern, the same as stock.

    Application. This Barton Industries shifter is specifically designed for use on the 2005-2010 GT and Bullitt Mustangs equipped with the TR-3650 manual 5 speed transmission.

        Does this reuse any of the original shift linkage parts other than the knob?

        • Hello! For this Barton Short Shifter w/ Round Handle - TR-3650 you are going to unbolt and swap out the shifters only reusing the shift linkage bolt and the two nuts for the support bracket.

        Currently my Hurst short throw is having issues hitting my Ford 1 piece aluminum Driveshaft after I installed it. Will this have any clearance issues like the Hurst did?

        • This should not have any clearance issues with the driveshaft.

            Better then expected

            Very happy with this shifter. I've had my 2008 gt since new, I should of do e this 11 years ago. Throws are short and precise. I was concerned about the shifter requiring to much effort to shift but it is not at all, shifts very smoothly and goes right into gear. Installation was not to bad, took a few hours. I just had ramps and Jack stands, it would of been much easier on a lift.

            Crisp Shifts

            The shifter is an easy install. The shifts are very crisp. Getting the OEM rubber sound boot to fit properly was a pain to fit on the shifter, but have patience. I also had to make modifications to my shifter boot because it made for going into reverse a lot easier than fighting to find the reverse gear (although it isn’t mentioned here, Barton’s site does make note of this). The quality is superior. The shifter did enhance my driving experience.

            Better than stock

            Notchy however still better than the stock shifter. I only drive my Mustang 200-300 miles a month so it's going to take a while to break it in. Right now 1st and 5th gears take a little muscle to get in gear.

            Great shifts

            Was a little hesitated about getting the Barton shifter but I'm glad I did get it. I can feel the short throws compared to the long throw stock shifter. Had to get a adjust to the new feel since I also put in the a new stage 2 clutch and racing flywheel. Very happy!!

            Barton shifter review

            Very well made part. Every bit as good as advertised. Big improvement over the wobbly factory part and you can’t tell it’s not original until you shift it. Well worth the money.

            Quality. Heck of a difference.

            Everyone keeps talking like this feels like Hephaestus himself crafted this, and they're not wrong. Threw (ha) this in since I was doing a clutch job at 97k. Makes a WORLD of difference. Came from the stock clutch so I can't say how this compares to other aftermarket shifters. Unsure if worth mentioning to potential buyers: the handle itself is an additional inch to two longer than the stock handle. I feel more comfortable with the higher positioning of the shifter, but people that like shorter shifters (lols) may not be comfortable with it. With big quality comes big price. You pay for what you get.

            Barton 05-10 short throw

            Stock shifter is so sloppy 2-3 shift. This setup is night and day. No more missed shifts. Amd throw is about 40 shorter. Spend the extra couple bucks, makes your car fun to drive again!

            Reduced travel, and works great

            The install is very doable at home if you're even remotely mechanically inclined. The reduced travel is very impressive, and a nice upgrade. My only gripe is that it does take a bit to break in, and get rid of some the stiffness. Still worth every penny.

            Definite upgrade

            Relatively easy install, would recommend a lift if you have access. Had to remove all transmission cross brace bolts and slightly lower transmission to remove front arm and bolt, just no clearance. Shifter is super firm and you know when you are in gear. Bye bye missing 3rd gear. Love it! Took just over an hour to install on a lift.
