    Review & Install Video

    Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the SR Performance short throw shifter, fitting all 1982 to 2004 manual Mustangs. Alright, before we get into all the details pertaining to this very budget friendly short shifter, I think we should take our 98 GT out of the shop with the stock shifter still in place, that way we can do a proper comparison with the SR Performance unit, when we do get it installed. Alright so we’re out in the 98 GT, and we have the stock shifter still installed, and I’m battling with this thing man, it’s pretty horrible, the throws are horribly long, the action is terribly sloppy, granted the car is 15 years old, but it could definitely use some improvement. So with that said let’s get back to the shop, talk a little bit more about that SR Performance shifter, and then get it installed. Taking a closer look at the shifter itself, you get the impression that it’s built very well, this can partially be attributed to the 100% Billet aluminum construction, which should be up to the task of handling some hard shifts, and then some. In addition, this shifter features two sets of centering return springs, so it’s going to have that nice tight feel while in neutral, as opposed to all that sloppiness we felt with the stock shifter. Finally, this shifter does include these two adjustable stops so you can adjust the shift handle firmness to your own personal preference. You can also tweak the position of the shift handle, for more adjustment, so ultimately you can dial in your perfect shifting experience. Speaking of shifting, what good is a short shifter without reduced throws? Well, using the SR Performance unit you can expect a roughly 30% reduction in throws, which I know may not sound like a whole lot but believe me, once you get in the car and roll through the gears a little bit, the difference will be night and day. Since the install should all be inside the car, it really shouldn’t be all that difficult, you will need to slightly disassemble the shifter bezel in order to uncover the bolts necessary to remove the factory shifter and install the new SR Performance unit. While this is all pretty basic stuff, just be sure to leave yourself a couple of hours to get the job done. It is worth point out that the SR Performance shifter does not come with a shift knob, but it does share the same thread pitch as your factory shifter, meaning your factory shift knob should work just fine, or any other shift knob that shares the same thread pitch as OEM. Well, now that the SR Performance shifter is installed, let’s grab our 98 GT one more time, and see what this shifter is all about. Alright, so we’re out in the 98 GT with the SR Performance short shifters installed, and first impressions looks wise is a good one, I mean the thing sits at least 3 to 4 inches shorter than our stock shifter, it’s got rid of that goofy bend and that means we can finally use that front cup holder again. But let’s see how this thing does shifting shall we? Get down into second…third…I mean it’s definitely a night and day difference versus our stock shifter, the throws are real short and the action is really crisp, I mean it’s nice and firm, get a positive feeling every time you go into gear, it’s a great value man, so be sure to check out the SR Performance short shifter right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    Improves Shifts. Give your 2001-2004 GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, or 2001 Cobra's transmission the precise feel it deserves with this must-have mod.

        Do you have to replace the stock shifter bushing? I’m worried a worn bushing won’t do the short throw justice

        • The SR Performance Short Throw Shifter will not require replacement of the shifter bushing, unless excessive wear is present.

        • I do apologize, I am unable to confirm if this works with your car by providing those numbers. The SR Performance Short Throw Shifter - TR-3650 (01 Cobra; Late 01-04 GT, Mach 1) is meant to work with the TR-3650 that is included in the late 2001 to 2004 Mustang GTs.

            Worth it

            Let me start off by saying I’ve never experienced a Barton or MGW shifter but after installing this SR performance short throw shifter I have no ambition to. It feels so good, got rid of all that sloppiness you feel in the stock one and the shifts feel great. Definitely glad I took a chance on this and saved some $$$. Install was a breeze took about a half hour. Make sure you have new silicone.

            I bought the shifter almost a month ago and it has not let up yet, it is really tight and very sturdy. I would recommend this product for every manual driver around.

            Quick and Easy installation, even for someone with no prior experience. Gets rid of the Rowing motion and greatly decreases time to shift.

            It's worth the money

            Installation was very fast and so easy, and once I took my car for a test drive there was a huge difference in shifting time and smoothness. Definitely will shave off some times between shifting.

            Great Positive response when putting into gear. very little wobble in neutral and a pretty short throw compared to stock. Sure there are better out there, but the price and the quality are amazing.

            Night and Day Difference

            This shifter is leaps and bounds better than the stock shifter. All of the movements are extremely deliberate. There is zero play, taking out all of the slop and sluggish movement in the stock shifter. Worth every penny.

            Awesome shifter

            Don't have a problem with this shifter what-so-ever. Be sure to transfer the plastic piece at the end of your old shifter if you have a 2004 Mustang GT. Other than that shortened and firmed up my shifts very nicely. Would recommend especially for the price. I am not familiar with other short throw shifters thus my 4/5 rating. I have nothing to compare it to besides to stock shifter; but definitely a must buy.

            Great shifter, feels very good and reduce shift times. The shifter is lower then stock and looks like it came out of a s550. Now it doesn't feel like your shifting an 18 wheeler. Keep in mind you will need a new gasket or rtv gasket maker, as well as some blue thread locker. Great buy for me and my mustang.

            Awesome! Exteremly short**

            Love the product! Shifts are short and super tight. People are constantly saying they love how short and stiff it is when they drive my car. Have had this in for over 3 years never had a problem missing 3rd or any gears. Only con to this product is that it moves the shifter forward and very low. For my short arms I’m constantly reaching to shift into 3rd in 5th. I just installed the steed tri-ax handle after 3 years of use and it made it perfect. Wish I had done that years ago no more reaching cuz it’s closer me me now. As much as I love this product the 30 bucks I spent for the new handle I could have just bought the steeda short throw. Could be better or worse? Overall love the SR product and loved it even more when swapping the handle
