Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey guys, Alex from AmericanMuscle.com and today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the SR Performance Short Throw Shifter for the year 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT and V6. So in this video I'm going to talk about who this short shifter is going to appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this, what this is going to do to your wallet and then what it's going to take to get this installed on your Mustang, where I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor and I'll have a little bit more for you on that later. So the SR Performance Short Shifter that I have here today is going to be a good option for any GT or V6 owner out there that's looking to get a shorter throw inside of their Mustang while spending the least amount of money out there but still is going to reduce that throw upwards of 30%. This shifter from SR Performance is going to be for the Mustang owner that's using their car as a daily driver or a weekend warrior in comparison to a car that's going to be seeing regular track day abuse. So while this short shifter will reduce your throws it's not going to be built with the same intentions of some of the other options out there which are gonna come with different mounting points as well as having different brackets, but if you're just looking to firm up your shifts as well as just make your day-to-day driving experience better, this is going to be a great option for you. So if you've owned your GT or V6 for a little while now, at this point you probably know that the MT82 isn't the best transmission built, so while the stock shifter is suitable for daily driving, it does have its fair share of complications, our customers give us a lot of feedback here and the MT82 just has a little bit of a longer throw being in stock form, could be a little bit on the mushier side when you're power shifting and due to the lockout it can definitely be tough when you're jamming it into gear. Last but not least, it's just a little bit on the weaker side. So while a short shifter isn't going to fix or solve the integrity of the transmission itself, the SR Performance Short Shifter that we have here today will reduce your throws upwards of 30% as well as getting rid of that soft feeling. So one of my personal favorite aspects about installing a short shifter on any Mustang is going to be that more rigid or real feeling that's going to give you a little bit more connectivity to your car, which is something that the stock shifter just doesn't provide. So a few small things that I wanna talk about before we get into the construction and materials of the shifter here, is that this part is typically something that has a tendency to be at the bottom of your build list and that's honestly just going to be because it's not a performance part that's gonna give you a gain, it's not going to be something where it's going to increase your sound like an exhaust system, but at the end of the day considering a manual Mustang, you're going to be using this continually all the time, you would honestly be surprised at how much of a change it's going to provide your car. So while these next two parts are not going to be included in this kit, these are gonna be a pair of mods that I would definitely recommend doing at the same time, as it's just gonna make that experience that much better. First and foremost I would really recommend getting into a braided and stainless steel clutch line as that's gonna improve the transfer of fluids to prevent any type of lockout. Now secondly, on a bunch of our '11 through '14 fleet cars, when we've done any type of short shifters before, we've actually removed the clutch spring that's behind the clutch pedal, before it had that put in place to give it a little bit more of a softer feel. By removing that, that's going to improve the release point and give you a little bit more of a direct input. So in ter

25-30% Shorter Throw. Eliminate the sloppy, mushy feeling of the Mustangs stock shifter with a brand new SR Performance short throw shifter from AmericanMuscle. This SR Performance short shifter is specifically designed to reduce the throw by up to 25-30%, all while preserving the factory shifter ergonomics for a comfortable yet sporty driving experience.

Retains Reverse Lock-out. The SR Performance Short Throw Shifter was specifically designed to retain the Reverse Lock-out safety feature of the 2011-2014 manual Mustangs to prevent accidentally shifting into reverse.

Superior Construction. Featuring rock solid construction, this SR Performance short throw shifter is manufactured from billet aluminum, steel, and composite components to provide a lifetime of gear banging enjoyment.

Application. This SR Performance shifter is designed for the 2011-2014 V6 and GT Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual 6 speed transmission. The shift handle reuses the stock shift knob or an aftermarket knob with a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern can be used.

Will the SR Performance shifter remove the "notchy" feel from the stock shifter? Will it shift quieter than stock?

  • The SR Performance Short Throw Shifter (11-14 GT, V6) is definitely an improvement in functionality over the stock shifter. However, an inexpensive little gasket can help the feel and even reduce the noise of your shifter even more to your desired level of comfort. You can find the Shifter Base Gasket - MT-82 (11-14 GT, V6, BOSS) (Item #100636) here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/mt82-shifter-base-gasket.html

Shifter Bracket how do you know if you need the shifter bracket when ordering the short throw shifter..will it work with out it..I have a 2012 GT with a 6 speed manual transmission

  • Get the bracket! The shifter will work with or without the bracket. The bracket just replaces the junk stock bracket. You will laugh when you compare the two.

    This shifter is a great alternative to big name shifters on the market. The shifter works great and provides shorter, notchier throws. This shifter DOES retain reverse lockout and NO you do not need the bracket but if you really want to buy it, it would just give an even better feel. Very Satisfied!

    So far no major issues with the shifter. Install was more then I thought there should be for a shifter like this,but that's more of ford's fault them the shifter. I love how it feels going into gears.

    SR Performance Short Throw Shifter

    I installed the short throw shifter along with the older Barton one piece bracket. Overall it was a great improvement over the stock shifter, getting rid of the sloppy shift feeling. The shifts were a lot more direct, and you never had to guess which gear you were in. The shifter decreased the throws by a decent amount, maybe half of what a Barton shifter would. The installation is very simple, and I would strongly recommend upgrading the shifter on any MT-82.

    SR Short Throw Shifter

    Very easy install, good quality products (installed SR bracket as well). Only complaint would be reverse. Factory shifter was clear when going into reverse. Found myself in 1st a number of times. Being more cautious of it, it's not really an issue anymore. Gears 1-6 dramatic improvement. I definitely agree with the other reviews... You would have to try and miss third gear now.

    No more sloppy shift's

    This product is really easy to install it took me about 25 minutes. You will need to Jack the car up to lower the original shifter bushing assembly and while you're in there just go ahead and replace it with an upgrade again you will feel the difference instantly.. Sr shifter is more precise shorter throw and just plain easier to use and no more second to third missed shifts. It's an excellent shifter for the money.

    Great shifting for the money

    This a great shift and no more 2nd 3rd issues.I bout the bushing also. Its not real easy to install but once you get the pieces together it wont take long. lower the old shift bushing bracket to get to bottom right hand bolt. its worth the money ans the shift throw is way reduced. firm crisp shifts in my car. Yes you can spend more money on a "name" brand but it will do the same thing......shift the car. Buy the package deal and save a little. Its a Great Shift .

    SR STS

    So when I first bought this STS I wanted to return but I wanted to give it a chance before sending it back. One of the first I noticed after installing it was that I HAVE to lift slightly up to make sure I get in 1st. If I don't I'd be in reverse. It took a while for me to get used to it but I did. Then second thing I noticed right away was that I wasn't able to get into 2nd without having to think about it. You should be able to just slap it to the left and down but you CAN'T. And I found this out when I was coming on slow traffic. You have to slightly move it to the left and down to get it in gear. Now I've had this STS for about a year. The only reason why I'm finally doing a review on it now is because when I had my car valet parked the driver accidentally backed into the wall because he thought he was 1st. The lockout didn't do it job and now I have two scratches on my rear bumper.... I've then put back in the stock shifter and invested in backup senors and a backup camera. Save up for a better STS IMO.

    Worst Shifter Ever

    I recently purchased this for my '13 5.0 and let me tell you one thing, do bot buy it. This is the worst shifter I have ever used in my whole life. It is cheaply constructed, in gear the shifter wiggles and I do not feel confident shiftin with it. The reverse lock out is gone and now everytime I'm at the drag strip it locks me out of 2nd Gear because it pushes down too easily and gets stuck. I highly do not reccomend this shifter and instead would go with the Tri-Ax or a Hurst.

    Not bad for the money..

    I was a little hesitant to order this shifter after reading some reviews on different forums. However, it's pretty good for the money. Getting into first is sometimes a little tricky and there is definitely more NVH. The shifts are shorter and crisper. I also installed the SR shift bracket. There's virtually no slop anymore..much better than stock. All in all, it's not a bad buy if you don't want to spend $300 on another brand.

    Does not retain the reverse lockout.

    The shifter is pretty nice. You can defiantly tell a difference when shifting. The shifter and bracket took about two hours to install (because we used floor jacks.) The only downfall is that it says that it retains the reverse lockout, but when I go into reverse I don't even have to press down at all. It takes a good week to get use to it. Ovreally it's pretty good for the price.

    sr performance short throw

    I bought this shifter along with the barton two post bracket.. tried to save a couple bucks by going with the cheaper shifter hoping the bracket would make up for it but now i regret it because the shifter isnt what I thought it would be.. from first to second it will get jammed like its caught in reverse and you can barely feel a difference in throws from the stock shifter.. if I could go back id spend the extra $$$ on a barton shifter

    You get what you pay for

    I just drove my nice 2014 GT from Toronto Canada to San Diego California and back for a total of 8600km round trip. I wish I took my stock shifter with to swap it back in. This one has become noisy, easily confuses 1st, 3rd and reverse and 2nd jams quite often when downshifting. Definitely worth spending more to get a better one. American Muscle, are you willing to take this one back to upgrade to a better model and I will pay the difference...?

    This shifter for the money is well worth it. I just wish Ford would have given more thought to the original design because it's garbage. I do recommend the shifter bracket and the mount insert as well to fix all the shifter related issues.

    Excellent buy! Easy install! Sturdy and durable!

    I installed my SR Performance Short Throw Shifter in about an hour. However, I did do lots of research on removing the console panel and stock shifter before proceeding. By the time I got in there, I pretty much knew what to expect! The shifter makes all the difference in the world compared to the stock shifter. Shorter throw, smoother shifts, and more firm are huge benefits. I'm super happy with it and I'm glad I made the change. Worth every penny! I would also recommend purchasing an SR Performance Shifter Bracket as well. Not only does it smooth out your shifter even more, it will give you the benefit of only having to pull your shifter assembly apart one time!

    Not quite there?

    I guess my expectations were amped up quite a bit more than needed. Install was my fault, as I could only work from under the car by backing up some rhino ramps, but install was pretty straightforward and simple. First things I noticed was that fresh out of the box, this shifter has an interesting time trying to find first or second gear. If you're coasting in neutral and then proceed to find a diagonal gear, good luck! This shifter is not for gorilla handed drivers throwing and slamming the stick around. The shifts can indeed be quick, but must be gentle and precise or it will miss/grind/lockout easily. That being said, it does definitely have positives!! The shifts are so much quicker, shorter, and more definite! There is a tad more NVH but that has never bothered me. If it did I WOULDN'T BUY A MUSTANG GT W/ MANUAL TRANSMISSION!!! Banging through gears has never been more fun. All in all pretty good product and I would recommend to others!
