      Smoother, Firmer Shifts. By combining a Ford Racing MT-82 Short Throw Shifter and two post shifter bracket you will enjoy smoother, faster shifting while you're banging through the gears. This Ford Racing 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.

      Retains Reverse Lock-out. The Ford Racing Short Throw Shifter was specifically designed to retain the Back Up Camera and the Reverse Lock-out safety feature of the 2011 and newer manual Mustangs to prevent accidentally shifting into reverse.

      Ford Racing Quality.
      Machined from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel, for solid construction, this Ford Racing short throw shifter and two post shifter bracket installs easily with NO permanent modifications required to your Mustang.

      This Ford Racing shifter and bracket is specifically designed for the use on the 2011-2014 V6, GT and BOSS 302 Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual 6-speed transmission. Includes shifter, two post bracket and classic white 6-speed shift knob.
      Technical Note. The included shift ball and adapter only fit Mustangs originally equipped with a leather shift knob. Mustangs originally equipped with an aluminum shift knob will be required to reuse it, or install shifter boot part# BR3Z-7277-A.

        Expensive but worth it

        If you go through the reviews you’ll see people comment that this is the shifter Mustangs should get from the factory. They are 100 right. My factory shifter was too easily shifted into reverse by accident. And gear changes were mushy and uninspiring. This Ford SVT unit changed all that. Shifts are now precise and clean. It makes the car fun to drive. Install was pretty simple with basic tools.

        Major difference compared to stock. The short throw shifter is a pleasure from 2nd to 3rd shifting. Bill C Stony Point NY

        How does this shifter cost $470? It does not even include linkage. Huge RIP off

        Must have

        This is in my opinion, one of the best changes you can make to your Mustang. It is such an improvement over the cheesy plastic stock shifter. For performance, or just casual driving, this shifter is a must have. You won't regret this purchase. And it's a super easy to install.

        Great buy

        When I first ordered the shifter I was really hopeful and the shifter didn't disappoint. It was a little stiff getting into reverse the first couple of times but it is smooth. The reduction is perfect.

        ForedShort-Throw Shifter and Bracket

        Great addition. Feels like a different car. Why doesn't Ford install these as the stock factory shifter? The tech at the Ford dealer who installed it says this is probably the best modification you can make to your stick-shift Mustang if you could only do one mod. He's the main Mustang tech at he dealership, and lives to work on Mustangs. Cost of few bucks to buy and install, but I'm glad I did. Love driving the car even more now.

        Easy install. HUGE IMPROVEMENT

        Took about a hour to install. I added a little fiberglass insulation while I was at it to dampen any sound. HUGE difference! I can shift in a fraction of a second from the original and it's smooth and tight.

      Just asking.... I had this professionally installed, but they did not rotate the handle 180 degrees. I have a 2013 and it is set to 2011. I am having issues, and was wondering what happens when the handle is not rotated? I would like to know if I need this re-installed correctly.

      I have a 2011 gt/cs. The shifter isn’t a knob but more like a handle that is leather wrapped and has an aluminum top. Will this shift be a direct replacement? Will my leather boot fit right after replacement?

      • The Ford Performance Short Throw Shifter and Bracket Will work with the 2011 Mustang GT California Special. The included shift ball and adapter only fit Mustangs originally equipped with a leather shift knob.
