    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.

    Application.
    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.

        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?

            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.

            Short Throw Shifter

            While the shifter fits fine and looks good, it’s extremely stiff in movement, unlike the video where they are shifting gears with two fingers! The throw reduction is nominal, and I was looking for not only reduction, but a smooth shift from gear to gear, I didn’t get it. I also took it to a Mustang high end garage to have it installed. The price of the shifter and install was not worth the money!

            Perfect shifter

            Install went just as instructions said.. i recommend watching a couple vids as well.. hardest part was getting my lowered 2014 GT onto the jack stands.. the actual install was breezy.. shifts are direct and precise.. short throw allows you to shift with just your wrist and not your entire arm.. love it.. just make sure you set reverse lockout orientation correctly as the instructions advise.. if you get it wrong, then you'll be doing it all over again... i learned that from a poor fellow from on of the vids i saw.. you may still have a little shifting issues if you havent upgraded your clutch line to a steel one.. also should look into the isolated clutch fluid reservoir .. however, the Ford Racing shifter makes the biggest leap to proper shifting.. highly recommended...

            Solid Quick Shifts!!

            This is a quality product that should have been on the vehicle from the factory. I do not understand why Ford would manufacture a vehicle like this and not have it beefed up already knowing the Horse Power and Torque that can come from this engine especially when modified!!. But the shifts are solid quick and you know you in gear.

            How it should be from the factory

            Stock shifter was spongy and not precise, misshifted a lot with it. This shifter is smooth and crisp, much more consistent and solid, how the stock shifter shoulda been from the factory. I also put in a exedy 500 clutch and flywheel, steel clutch line, whiteline trans mount, and RP synchromax in along with the shifter. Night and day difference.
