    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

    • 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.

      This shifter is every bit as good as one that you will spend $50 more on. No slop, strong centering spring, very straight into gear. Missing 3rd will no longer be an issue, as it was with the stock shifter. For the price, well worth it. Installation was rather easy. No need to use the stops on the TR-3650, it has internal stops. The best way to get the old shifter out is by putting the stock shift knob back on and pulling back as if you were going from 3rd to 4th gear. Good product.

      Great Shifter!

      I installed this shifter on my '04 GT. Installation is a piece of cake, the only slight struggle was getting the old shifter out. If you have trouble just bolt your handle back on the old shifter after you have removed everything and give it a yank, it comes right out. I used RTV to seal the new shifter to the transmission. The intstall took about 30 minutes to complete. I did end up cutting 1/2" off the threads of the new shift lever so there are not threads showing below the lock nut. I put the white ball on and it looks sweet! Shifts are short, tight and positive. I installed a Pro 5.0 shifter on my '98 GT several years ago and this is every bit as good a shifter. This is a great shifter and you can't beat the price.

      Perfect!

      I was weary about this with it being cheaper and some people on a forum saying "STEEDA" but this SR has been awesome. I've driven a little over 250 miles with it and I absolutely love it. It has stoppers to reduce/increase the throw and it feels great. I put a white retro ball shift knob on this thing and could not be happier with it. It is shorter but also adjustable so you can make it what you want. It went in as easy as any short shifter on a Mach 1 does. I would buy this again if I ever had to.

      Much More Sturdy Shifter

      I highly recommend buying this short shifter. There is no comparison between the OEM shifter and this. I could have bought a different lever to change the length of my shifter but instead I bought this shifter. There is zero play when in neutral or in gear. This is also much more sturdy and made much better than the original. Took me about 2 hours the first time I put it in and only about an hour now if have to take it back out to fill the transmission with fluid. The lever is much shorter than I expected. I would guess it's about 4" shorter than the OEM shift lever. I do recommend buying the shifter gasket set, though.

      Great upgrade for the price

      I got this short shifter For my 2001 cobra and I love it,the only complain is that the bolts loosen up very easily and the shifter will become wiggly(if that make since) so I have to keep ripping my console apart to tightened the bolts back I guess I will try to put some tape on the threads to see if they will stay tight,However it's a HUGE improvement on shifting its a tight/stiff and smooth when you shift gears and about half the shift,make sure you get another knob as the stock knob is awkward at 1st gear if you have big hands like myself your fist will hit the console when you shift into first gear... As for American Muscle customer service TOP NOTCH!! Always very helpful and they know there stuff this is the only website I shop for my stang only webiste I trust For my stang Another note::: took me about 20 mins to install it The instructions where easy to follow and tells you what you need for the install

      Amazing shifter

      This shifter is a night and day difference from the stock one. It makes the car feel way more refined. The throws are way shorter than the stock one and it actually makes it easier to daily drive. Took me about 30 minutes to install. I would definitely recommend this to any mustang owner and I would buy this again.

      SR Shifter Poor Performance

      I bought a 2003 Mustang Mach 1 with 11,000 miles and limited use, and no winters. Great car, but the shifter was always stiff, hard to get into reverse, and not a pleasure to use. The shifter was a SR Performance unit. I finally purchased a MGW shifter and shifter ball for my Mach 1. Installation was very easy, candy I added the leather shifter boot. Bottom line, the MGW shifter is very smooth, very accurate, and 20 times better than the SR Shifter. Spend the $20.00 additional dollars for the MGW product and you will thank me many times.

      trash that stock shifter!

      After being on the fence for a year on weather or not to buy a shifter, I saw this one on sale. I wished I hadnt waited! It truely is amazing the gain in control you gain over the power of the car with just a shifter install! While 1-2 shifts are shorter the best improvement is 2-3 shift and the overall feel of control of the power. Installation is pretty quick as well taking me about 45 min or so to install.

      SR Short Throw in 03 Mach 1

      This shifter greatly reduces throw and is much firmer than stock. I was not happy with it at first because it was very notchy trying to get it into gears. I really had to push. After a couple days of driving it loosened up and is great. The install was very easy (45 min), just wish there was a rubber spacer between the shifter handle and the rest of the assembly like there is on the stock shifter. A lot more tranny vibrations in this shifter. Other than that, great product at an unbeatable price!
