    Review & Installation Video

    Hey I’m Justin with, 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

    Will I be able to use the front cupholder now? The stock shifter, when in second gear, hits any type of cup/mug/bottle in the front cupholder. Does this short shifter fix the problem?

    • Yes! Because of the short handle, it shouldn't impede the use of that cup holder anymore. So stop storing change in it and start using it for what it is intended for! *large foam cups (it will differ from different restaurants) may still rub, but 12oz cans, 16oz bottles, and such, you're good to go.

    What gear should I be in? What gear should I be in when I am removing my stock one? I don't know if the car should be in a gear or in neutral during the time when there is no shifter in place.

    • you are supposed to be in neutral when removing and installing a shifter.

    What's the difference between the TR-3650 and the T-5/T-45? I have 2001 Bullitt so I'm unsure which one would fit.

    • Early 2001 Mustang Bullits with the Transmission code 6 will have the T45 and the later 2001 Bullits with the transmission code K will have the TR-3650. You may check your door jamb, and there should be a sticker with the VIN, and the sticker should have the manufacture date of your vehicle along with the type of transmission that came with your vehicle. If the manufacture date is no longer visible, we would recommend contacting your dealership with the VIN, and they can provide that information.

    What are the major differences between this shifter and the sport version of the short throw offered by SR?

    • The sport short throw shifter uses a 3 piece design rather than the 2 piece design that this shifter uses. This shifter by SR would be a bit strongerin construction than the sport.

    Hi, I have a Pro-touring 1963 1/2 Falcon Sprint (the mustang's progenitor btw) with a T5 transmission (G-Force internals). Will this shifter work on any T5 transmission? Second, can any shifter handle work on this or do you have to use the stubby one it comes with?

    • The SR Performance Short Throw Shifter will physically bolt to the T5 transmission, however we are unable to confirm how this will fit on your specific vehicle as we have no information on this combo. This will accept most aftermarket shift handles that are compatible with the OEM shifter.

      Can now use front cupholder!

      So far so good. When I first installed it I adjusted the bolts to far out so i couldnt get into 4th but after slight adjustment it's now working perfectly. Not sure why but i do hear more noise since the install? But overall very happy with it, and got my front cupholder back!!

      Gets rid of the loose, sloppy feel

      I put this thing on yesterday on my t-45 and it is a huge difference from the stock shifter, the throws are ALOT shorter and it sits about 2 inches lower, this thing is stiff so you do need some power to move it.

      Missing first and reverse

      Installed sr performance shifter in my 2000 Gt. I tested it with the car off. It went into every gear smoothly. I took it out on a test drive, put it in reverse all the way, the shifter began to shake violently and slap into neutral. By that time I’m in the street, I put it into first gear it does the same exact thing. I reinstalled it and played with the shifters position and I got reverse back but first is still bad.

      It definitely shortens your throw and it looks great. It takes maybe an hour to install just make sure you get another cup.

      great investment

      Been wanting one of these for a while. Its got a nice weight too it so you know it's not made of junk and the shifts are smooth and fast and have that nice mechanical feel so you know you're in gear. It is about 3 inches shorter so is you were having a hard time with stock you might have trouble with this. I've yet to have that embarrassing moment when you miss third gear while going hard because of the long and sloppy stock shifter. Great qaulity, great investment, and a decent price. Thanks AM
