    Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the Ford Racing Short Throw Shifter for 2015 and up GT Mustangs. The Ford Racing Short Throw Shifter is a great option for someone looking to firm up the shifts in their GT for a little bit more fun driving, without having to spend an arm and a leg. The factory shifter isn't terrible, but if you're really a performance-based person, then you'll notice that it is a little soft, a little mushy, and you might want something a little bit more firm, with a little less throw. The factory shifter has, you guessed it, soft rubber bushing. So that's where a lot of these downsides are coming from. And just like every other part on the car, where there are soft rubber bushings, there's room for some performance based improvements. I would say that one of the biggest features of this shifter and one of the best, in my opinion, is that it has a 15% reduction in throw. Coming from a more old school world, I didn't consider the throw of the stock shifter necessarily long to begin with, so a 15% reduction, while it may not sound like a ton, is actually gonna make a good bit of difference. When you start reducing throw too much, I personally notice that instead of improving shifts, it does the opposite. Too short of a throw tends to cause more issues than anything else, so a 15% reduction keeps you on the safe side for sure, where you're balancing short enough to help but not too short to cause issues. But there are some other short throw shifter options on the site that will reduce throw even more, if you want an even shorter shift, and you can feel free to check those out if that's more of what you're looking for. The general construction of this is C&C machine billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel. The shifter will come with a Ford Racing shift knob, just to complete the package, which is slightly larger than the factory knob but I wouldn't say that it's oversized or too large. It is a resin compound shift knob, in case you were wondering, so it's not as sensitive to things like heat and cold. Of course, this shifter is made for the MT 82 Six-speed trans, so it's going to be reverse lock out compatible and will retain both the reverse lock out and the back up camera so you won't be losing any of those nice stock features if you want to upgrade to this shifter. Another nice thing is that the shifter doesn't require any permanent modifications to get installed. As far as price, you're looking at spending about $250 for this shifter. Like I mentioned earlier, this is one of the least expensive full shifter and knob combo upgrades that are available right now. It's also a genuine Ford Racing product. So for once, Ford Racing is coming in on the less expensive side. Never thought I'd say that, but we're all aware of the quality of the Ford Racing products. Like I said earlier, there are some other options that will give you even more reduction in throw, but they're gonna be a little bit more expensive. So we've got a little bit of a change for the install here. Normally I'd say that this is an easy install, but in the case of the S550, you're actually looking at a bit of a project. Most people actually let a shop do the install, but if you don't wanna pay labor, or you think you've got this yourself, you're going to need a handful of tools, and a helping hand would be nice as well. And a lift would be your best bet to get the job done. You can expect a full three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and a few hours to finish the install. I'm gonna glaze over the details here, since this install is so involved. But to get the factory shifter out, you're looking at doing the obvious things: removing the factory shift knob, getting your boots out from inside the car and all that. Then after that, you've got to get the car in the air, drop the exhaust from the mid-pipe back, mark and remove the drive shaft, drop the cross member, drop the shifter housing, and pull the shifter assembly from the car. After that, you'll need to disassemble the stock shifter, the housing and all of that, so you can take what you need off the stock shifter and swap it over to the Ford Racing shifter. You'll only need a few small things here. You're gonna be keeping your stock housing, which is why you need to do this assembling. One thing to consider while you're this far in, and this goes for anyone looking to purchase a shifter, is also picking up an upgraded rear shifter assembly isolator and a urethane transmission cross member insert. The shifter will come with new front bushings, but adding these two things will add even more firmness and take away any sloppiness that would be left in the trans. Wrapping things up here, the Ford Racing Short Throw Shifter is a complete shifter upgrade that will not only firm up your shifts but it's also going to reduce throw by 15%. It's made from billet aluminum and stainless steel, and it comes complete with a resin compound Ford Racing shift knob. You can check this shifter out more online, along with all of your other short throw shifter options, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

      Great shifter!

      While Ford was upgrading my clutch, I had them throw in this short shifter as well. After reading about the reduced throw only being 15 I didn’t expect to feel much of a difference. But oh was I wrong. I got it back, and shifts were short and crisp. After driving the car for 6 months and about 6,000 miles now it seems ‘long’ again. But I suppose if I was to drive a stock mustang again, I would quickly change my mind. Great product, low price!

      Nice and Stiff

      This is a very good shifter. However, the plastic reverse lockout collar vibrates around 3K RPM and makes a noise in the cabin. There should be a hard and thin plastic sleeve to go over the shifter rod before the shifter boot is reinstalled. This will stop the vibration. Other than that, I love the feel and action of the shifter.

      If you like the stock feel....

      If you like the stock feel, but just want the shorter throw, then this one works well. It doesn’t do much to improve your confidence of not missing a shift because it doesn’t upgrade the bearing mechanism like some of the higher end ones do. The metal bearings tighten it up a little and I didnt notice significant increase in noise transmitting through. The shifter height and reduction in throw was perfect for my tastes. Although any shifter knob is an improvement over stock, the Ford Racing one still feels a bit cheap. I would leave the Loctite off at first and try a couple shift knobs until you find one that feels like quality.

      Ford Short Throw Shifter

      Excellent product. Shifts are tight, solid, and sure. It should be Standard equipment on all 6 Speed Manual Transmissions. Must be installed by Ford Dealership to retain warranty. This is my second one in as many Mustangs. Different Dealerships charge different Installation Fees, from $300 to $600 for the same work. Be sure to compare cost before having one installed. No noise experienced in my recent installation. Well worth the price for the improvement in driving experience. My last one was put in 2016 Mustang GT 5.0 435 hp engine. The new one put in 2018 Mustang GT 5.0 460 hp engine with Performance Package. Highly recommend.

      So far so good.

      I had the shifter installed by my local Ford dealer at a cost of $623.08. Apparently 4.8 hours at $125.00 per hour. The only problem is with the reverse lockout collar. It takes quite a bit of effort to go into reverse. I put the stock knob back on and it helped but still rattles quite a bit.

      Ford Racing Short Throw Shifter

      What an improvement to the stock setup. Be prepared for an increase in cabin noise. The new shifter lets in a lot of vibration and mechanical noise from the transmission. Along with the FRSTS I had my Ford Dealership install the recommended Steeda transmission mount and stabilizer. The car shifts amazing!!!

      Kinda Impressed

      Had the shifter installed in my 2017 Mustang GT yesterday. Its impressive, but before you order this be sure its what you want. I took mine to the dealership to have it installed due to of the warrenty aspect of it. Very labor intensive. But for what the cost of the item is and what labor cost its upside down. Takes about 3 hrs to do. They gave me a break and it was still over $600.00 for labor. So think about that. And the knob that came with the this shifter wouldn't work so had to use the knob that came with the car.

      Shifts Amazing!

      Short crisp throws with a great feel as you go into gear. I brought it to a shop for installation, but looking back it's doable in an afternoon. Shop had to grind the bushing slightly for fitment.

      A great improvement!

      This shifter was a great improvement on my 2016 S550 Mustang. My only regret, is that I did not do it sooner. This is not the first vehicle that I've had with a short shifter. But this shifter greatly improved the accurate and solid shifting of the transmission. It makes the whole car seem a lot more solid. I did as others have recommended and added a transmission isolator along with the shifter bushings from Steeda

      Crisper Shifts

      I really love the Ford Racing short throw shifter. It's less expensive than the other options, and provides a great solution to the mushy, stock shifter. The throw is noticeably shorter, and inspires confidence in selecting gears. Installation by a Ford Racing-certified mechanic ran $265. Certainly worth the investment.

      Worth $225????

      There's no denying Ford's stock shifter needs improvement. Far too much throw, coupled with an overall sloppy feel leaves the driver with little feedback. However, Ford Racing's answer isn't the 100 solution. Is it better, yes! The shifter does have a shorter throw, better feel, and provides a more connected feel to the car. One will still find 4 to 5 tricky, and more effort is required to shift in any gear. Again, this was designed to be a race option. The Blue Oval should have produced a better option but for the price point it's fair. True racers / track drivers will opt for a Barton or like brand they've trusted at twice the cost. If you're seeking a 10-15 improvement, to clean up the "play" it's a solid choice. However, if one is track focused, the higher end shifters will be a better option. Like anything in life, you get what you pay for!

      Awesome feel, awesome looks at a great price. Came with everything I needed to install. Has very little shifter rattle. The rattle comes from the plastic reverse lockout. If I put my finger on it, it stops the noise. So its only noticeable with the radio off and or the windows up! My wife doesn't even notice it!!!!

      Much better feel and more solid shifts. You lose the stock factory rubber bushings and get aluminum ones with the shorter throw its just much better! Cost $350.00 to have installed. 3.5 hours time. Stock shifty on new Shelby gt. Nuf said.

      Had to take it to a local Ford dealer for the installation because of warranty, and all that was involved in replacing the shifter. Good thing that I did because one part had to be modified. Overall the shifter fills firmer, and gives it an old school shifting feel.

      Good short throw

      I have been using the FRPP short throw shifter for about a week now. It has improved the shifting feel 110. Shifts are solid now. When you want it in gear, it goes quickly. The shift ball is larger, but not obnoxious, and it looks great. The only issue I have is it seems that when FRPP first packed these shifters, they only put in one bushing when there was supposed to be two. I have confirmed on some mustang fourms that it wasn't just me. However, AM customer service was quick and had me a replacement in only a couple days.
