Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, Dave here from AmericanMuscle, and today I have the Hurst short throw shifter designed to fit the new GT and V6 manual Mustangs. The name Hurst should remind you of quality and this item is no exception. Hurst used billet aluminum and stainless steel parts to make sure this is not going to break down while you’re using your car. Some of the neat features that come with this Hurst short throw shifter, you have the option of the arm that comes with it and the Hurst shift ball, or the additional black replacement arm that allows you to use different thread pattern shift knobs. The other nice thing Hurst includes is a red LED light, you can wire this in if you like so that you know when you’re in reverse, it’ll illuminate, showing you reverse, and not first gear, seeing as they’re quite close together on these, this is a handy feature to have. First things first though, let’s get a stock run, with the stock parts on the car, and see what that feels like. Well, under normal conditions, honestly it feels like it’s a relatively far throw even compared to other stock shifters, it’s comfortable, that’s the word I would give it, comfortable. After a couple of miles of driving, here’s my honest opinion, it’s a fine shifter, for those who are driving daily through traffic and whatnot. But for me, and for a lot of enthusiasts out there, it lacks that oomph and that quick shift between gears, it takes so long. Alright, so we’re back here after our stock drive with our Hurst short throw shifter ready to go in the car. Before we install it I want to give you a couple of the key features I’ll be looking for when I drive this now. The Hurst short throw shifter does a few things, it reduces the amount of travel by 27% between gears, now that’s huge compared to stock, the other thing I’ll be looking for, second to third gear can sometimes be a little difficult with some of the Mustangs. With this part, it should clean it up so that second to third gear is a clean, crisp quick shift, just like the rest. So let’s go ahead and get this part installed, take it back on the street, and see what we think. So here we are in our 2011 manual 50 with our Hurst short throw shifter. Now, something I noticed right away like some of the others, it’s very low to the console, I like that, it gives it a very sleek look. Something else I’m figuring out really quick, it has a really short throw, I happen to like that, it suits my aggressive driving style, as I drive through the back streets here I don’t really feel any drivability issues, seems like I can find my gears without much issue. This part comes with a red LED light, you’re able to wire it up if you like into your reverse setting, so that when you do put it in reverse, the light pops on, indicating you’re in reverse, and not first gear. Here’s why this is important for this item: the Hurst shifter does not utilize the reverse lock out that the factory has installed, meaning you can easily be in reverse, thinking you’re in first. Well, road test complete, the Hurst short throw shifter was installed on our 2011 Mustang, and here’s what I have to say: it certainly reduces the amount of distance between shifts, and definitely makes your shifting faster, once you get used to it. The Hurst shifter utilizes its own reverse design without a reverse lockout, for example, taking off in a traffic or in a parking lot, just make sure you’re in first gear, third and reverse seem awful close sometimes. Once you get past how to drive with this shift, I think you’ll be happily impressed with the reduction in distance between gears. Once you figure that out, it’s a good product I certainly recommend it, just take your time.

Improves Shifts. Get rid of that sloppy feeling that many stock Mustang shifters have with a Hurst Billet Plus 2 Shifter. The Hurst shifter features a high ratio pivot mechanism for quicker, shorter throws and a polymide pivot cup to reduce jarring vibrations.

Improves Reverse Lock-out. The Hurst Billet Plus 2 Shifter not only improves your driving pleasure, but it also features an integrated adjustable reverse lock-out detent that eliminates the clunky OEM push-down style lock-out for easier use. Includes a Red LED light which ensures you are actually in Reverse rather than 1st gear.

Hurst Quality. The Hurst shifter is sturdily constructed from CNC machined 6061 T-6 billet aluminum for strength, to provide more precise and positive feed back when banging through all six gears. Shifter includes a chrome Hurst handle, white Hurst shift knob and shift boot grommet.

Application. This Hurst Billet Plus 2 shifter is designed for the 2011 to 2014 V6, GT and BOSS Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual 6-speed transmission.

Technical Note. This Hurst shifter includes a shift knob and handle with a unique thread pattern to Hurst. The stock Mustang shift knob (and aftermarket knobs) will not fit this Hurst shifter.

I have the Barton bracket already. Is there a way to change this without getting under the car?


  • Unfortunately, you will need to get under the car to remove two 10mm nuts that are holding the shifter bracket and bushing on.

    Best mod I've done to my 2013 Glass Roof GT yet. Shifts are so much crisper. 100 times better than the stock shifter.

    Not for me...

    My 07 GT had a Hurst shifter. Best thing since sliced bread. Bought this one for my 14 expecting the same and I was exceptionally disappointed. The product itself looks well constructed, quality materials and such. It wasn't particularly difficult to install. The shifter, in operation, left me very displeased. Even following the suggestions with regard to tightening the reverse gate spring tension, it was a pain in the butt getting the car into first gear, reliably. I even installed the little red indicator light to let me know I was in reverse, and the LED didn't work. Shifting while accelerating was OK, however nowhere near as crisp as my 07. Downshifting was problematic, especially from third to second, as I continually got hung up on the reverse gate. This came out of the car within an hour of it being installed and I am trying another product. Hurst, you let me down.

    Excellent product

    This item is a excellent upgrade to your car. The install is not complicated either. But a word of advice when tightening the bolts under the car be careful not to tighten them to tight. I snapped one of my bolts off and had to drill a new hole to fix the problem. So be careful outside of that the product is outstanding.

    very happy......but.....

    the end result is fantastic. installing the bushing was not easy from under the jacked up car. took to my guy to put up on the lift, then it was a snap. the adjustment for the reverse lock out was a bit more than the instructions. the factory adjustment was way too easy, I ended up adjusting 3 times, about a 1 1/4 turns total. now it's a bit stiff putting in reverse, but I don't have to worry slapping it in first at a light. very nice and tight, just the way hurst's should be. i'm very happy I did it.

    I can't be more pleased with this shifter compared with the stock one. The shorten throw really makes a big difference with no missed shift and a more crisp shift. I would highly recommend any mustang owner to install and Hurst Billet plus 2 Shifter

    Great Upgrade!

    I am very happy with my new shifter. It will take some getting used to but is much crisper and shorter throws than the stock shifter. Would have been a very quick install but ran into issues getting the rubber bushing reinstalled on the rear of the shifter assembly. After shaving some of the rubber away and plenty of grease I was able to slip it on the shifter assembly. Otherwise a very easy install. Very happy with my purchase and it looks awesome from inside or outside of my car. Thanks AM!

    I installed this shifter in my 2013 mustang with no problems, works great, and is a significant upgrade from the stock shifter as throw is dramatically reduced. I highly recommend this shifter to anyone who is looking for an affordable and quality upgrade.

    Watch out for Reverse

    Overall I like the shifter. At first I had a major problem with reverse and first. To fix this, I first increased the force necessary to get to the reverse gate (screw in 1/8th turn). This made the problem worse and added lots of road noise in the shifter. It turned out I really needed to reduce the force (loosen the adjustment screw) 1/8th turn from factory. The road noise decreased dramatically and first / reverse was much improved. I wish I could have adjusted the tension with out having to remove the shifter. I also added a chrome Hurst T-Handle which really gives a classic look and feel.

    Still my favorite Shifter since my first in the 60s!

    This Shifter is the 2nd one I have purchased for the S197 Mustangs. It improves the shift throw a lot and makes the 2-3 shift a breeze. Only thing I would recommend is adding the T-handle. The reason is "I" tend to pull the shifter towards me on the 1-2 shift and it will sometimes catches on the reverse gate. With the T-handle adjusted to my liking it forces me to pull straight back and I do not catch the reverse gate. I have the reverse spring at full stiff and it is not a problem getting into reverse so I recommend that adjustment be made before installing. The icing on the cake is the looks that the Hurst Shifter gives my Mustang, hands down nothing beats that! Best bang for the buck.

    love the old school look with the Hurst T handle. very tight shift pattern. feels like a greater reduction in throw than claimed. love the way you can feel and hear more of whats going on with the tranny though not to much noise to be a distraction. very easy to install. i took the afternoon by my self with no problems. Ive seen post that say if you need the reverse light you shouldn't drive a manual but believe me you should install it. first and reverse are very close together, i'm glad i installed it.

    Smooth, no slop and actually you get used to the difference quickly. I didn't use the reverse indicator light, I did set the preload on the reverse gate 1/4 turn past its stock factory setting. You KNOW when you're in reverse. Buy this, NOW! Shifts are quicker and smoother.
