    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.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        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

        i Have Blowfish Bracket Its Great But do you think getting a aftermarket shifter will clean up even more. i feel like i can get more direct precise shifts. the blowfish does help a ton but i feel like its almost there.

        I have a 2013 v6 3.7L mustang. I got it with some performance package. The shifter feels pretty short already...how do I know if it’s actually short throw?

        • We would suggest checking your VIN with your local ford dealership to see if it came with a factory short throw. Checking for an aftermarket short throw may be more difficult to determine and it may be best to have a shop take a look.

        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.

            Good shifter

            I put this shifter in a '14 Roush and it was a definite improvement over the stock shifter. That said, I think that upgrading the bushing was almost equal to the shifter upgrade. I definitely wouldn't do one without the other. My only negative to this shifter is that I lost the lockout for reverse. I had to be very careful when shifting into 1st so that I didn't wind up in reverse instead. It was extremely sensitive to any downward pressure on the shifter. All together, a good upgrade for the price. I would buy one again.

            Bad Geometry - but at least it's cheap!

            Paid mechanic/shop (twice) to install this shifter in my '13 Mustang. Although it assembles fine, the shift geometry isn't right (problems going into 1st and reverse gears). Tried reinstalling with new/different shifter bushing(s) and it still won't shift properly. Don't know if I can return this, but I've spent more on labor than the cost of the shifter ... please don't repeat my folly.

            Stiffer and notchier

            I installed this on my 2011 v6. I installed it hoping to get rid of the notchy shifting and lockouts. Pros: No lockouts, so far so good and this is a big plus. Cons: Shifting is nochtier, louder, and stiffer. None of the gears are smooth shifting anymore. I use to only have nochtiniess going into 2nd and reverse. Now its every gear some slight some clunk and I have to put extra force into getting it into gear. Its a lot hard to push down and get into reverse also. At first I thought maybe i over tighten something or something shifted. I took it out and reinstalled, torquing everything to spec again. No difference. I ordered the SR Performance Manual Transmission Shifter Base Gasket in hopes this will help. If not putting the stock shifter back on is a better option to me.

            Installed with no problem. Initially I had a hard time getting shifter into 1st and 2nd gear. It has improved some but not as smooth as anticipated.

            Make sure it's right!

            I initially had a couple issues with this shifter but patience and know how led to it being just fine... First off, Do Not use the rubber gasket which is also available. It's meant to quiet the vibrations down that the next shifter with bracket now transfer through the chassis. It doesn't do anything of the sort, it's no quieter without than it was with it. What it does do, is create enough spacing that throws off the geometry of the shifter to linkage, leading to difficulty getting into 1st and 2nd or getting the Reverse lockout to work. The shifter braket is the critical in my opinion and should be included. Make sure the 4 bolts holding the shifter down are evenly torqued as well. One of the bolts is hard to get to so make sure it's all right before synching everything up. So by properly installing and omitting the rubber gasket, you've got a great cheap upgrade.

            definitely a short throw.

            It feels much nicer then stock, only 2 small issues with this shifter, the spring for reverse lockout is light enough that when you shift from first to second gear if you push down on the knob at all you will hit the reverse lock out and miss second gear, also my shift knob is a little off center when its tightened down all the way, that can be fixed with a nut or two under the shifter ball to help line it up center, other then those two small issues this is a nice shifter.

            Get what you pay for

            I bought this because it was on sale to see what if it would improve the stock shifter. I will say I ok noticed a difference from stock but the metal reverse lock gets in the way and makes it hard to find first and second sometimes.

            This short throw is always on the on sale page and has been 139.99 for like a year. Lol American muscle. In regards to a review, I do own the shifter and installed and it notchy which i like, better than stock. The reverse is a bit trick but overall good for the money. Wish it was truly on sale, makes me angry to see it the same all the time.

            I installed the SR short throw shifter in about 2 hours and followed the instructions. I have a 2014 5.0 and had problems with the reverse lockout, it did not catch the notch and I didn't know if I was going into 1st or reverse. I removed the SR and replaced it with a Barton and had no issues. I recommend another option.

            Shifter works very well. I bought the shifter as well as the shifter bracket. Don't buy just the shifter, get the bracket as well. Installation is a little tricky, hard to get to one of the bolts. Plan on dropping the socket and/or bolt a few times!
