Product Description

Barton Industries Short Throw Shifter with Shifter Bracket and Shift Knob for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 V6 and GT Mustangs.

If you are looking for quicker shifts from your 2011-2014 manual transmission Mustang, then look no further than a Barton Industries Short Throw Shifter. Built in the USA from the highest quality materials and featuring a 40% throw reduction, it is no wonder that Barton's short shifter is considered one of the hottest upgrades out there. Comes with your choice of a black or white Barton shift knob.

Shifter Features:
- 40% throw reduction
- Machined from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel
- Dual pivot trunnion allows for minimal loss of the neutral left to right throw
- Minimal NVH increase for quiet operation
- Maintains factory reverse lock out and back-up camera
- Accepts factory knobs and maintains factory knob height
- Easy installation with no permanent modification
- Includes shift knob in black or white with 6-speed pattern and chrome adapter
- Includes Barton's shifter bracket

This shifter is paired and sold with Barton's shifter bracket (HW2960). Barton's billet aluminum shifter bracket will further improve shift performance by helping to eliminate missed shifts due to shifter deflection caused by the flimsy factory shifter bracket.

*Barton's shift knob only fits cars that originally came with the leather wrapped shift knob; it will not fit the shift boot from optional interior upgrade with billet shift knob or the Boss 302.
*Bushing color on shifter bracket may vary.

MUST HAVE
I have had several Mustangs since 1993, always hated the shifter. If you want to do one thing to improve your MT82 equipped Mustang, get this shifter and mount. The short throw is great and 3rd gear is no longer a moving target. Shifter is easy, easy to install, suggest a 1/4 drive to make it easier. The shifter bracket is a little more trouble, but well worth the effort. This product cut .2 seconds off of the 1/4 mile. Another added plus is the Barton shifter knob, it gets the knob high enough to shift with a coke in the holder, instead of having to reach under the car to shift. Do yourself a favor and get this one, because at the cost it is a great bargain

Great Shifter
I had a 2007 Mustang GT That I had the Hurst in and I loved it. When I bought my 2013 the only thing I really disliked was the shift. I bought the Barton Shifter and Bracket and I am in love again. Great precise throw. No missing gears. Very little noise etc. This kit is great. And the instructions are well done and thought out. Had the shifter in in about a hour.

By Bill Tumas: We recently started the modifications to our 2011 Mustang with a Roush axle back system. Now that our Mustang is sounding right, it's time to get it shifting right as well. The factory shifter leaves a lot to be desired, so today we're going to upgrade to a Barton shifter and their matching two post bracket. Both the shifter and the bracket are made in the USA using only the highest quality 6061 billet aluminum and 304 stainless steel. The shifter is going to reduce throws by approximately 40% and the bracket is going to decrease deflection, making the shifter a lot more accurate. The two post bracket is sold in kit form with the shifter. It is also available separately. You want to keep your stock shifter, adding the bracket is going to decrease deflections and still make the car shift a lot nicer. We do suggest using the bracket with the shifter for the ultimate performance.

For this installation you'll need a jack and jack stands or lift, 3/8 ratchet, 12-inch extension, 10-mm deep socket, 3/8 shallow socket, half inch wrench, flat-blade screwdriver or small pry bar and safety glasses.

We're going to start the installation inside the car by removing the factory shift knob. Our car has an aftermarket Boss 302 knob installed on it. It will unscrew counter clockwise making it pretty simple to remove. If you have a factory Boss 302, many times this knob is actually lock tighted on at which point you'll want to bolt it from the bottom. Now we're going to remove the top plate of the console and open up the rear storage. I'm going to pull up from the back. Slide the boot off and then unplug your trunk release and the traction control and set it aside.

Now we're going to pull back the sound deadening, and then remove the shifter seal. These four bolts get removed to pull the shifter out of the car. The bottom right bolt is pretty hidden by the transmission tunnel. We're going to remove the bracket down below to give us a little more play. Now remove the two nuts that hold on the bracket. Now we're ready to remove our stock brackets. On the passenger side there will be a little retaining clip and you'll have to remove that as well to get the bracket off. Now we can slide the bracket off the back of the shifter assembly. Here you can see a comparison between the stock shifter bracket and the piece by Barton. Even without changing the shifter you can tell it's going to make a big difference. Changing the shifter is going to give much shorter throws, as well.

Now that we removed the shifter bracket the four bolts to remove our stock shifter are much easier to access. We're going to pull the shifter and replace it with our Barton. Lifting the bolt up, pull the shifter straight up and straight off. Here again you can see a huge difference in quality between the Barton shifter and our stock shifter. The stock one is a thin metal plate with a plastic trim ring. The Barton is a much beefier unit to give us much more positive shift. Before we install the new shifter you have to pull this plastic cuff off the stock one and transfer it over, and we're ready to install. Want to make sure when we're installing the new shifter that this plastic cup fits into this opening in the transmission.

Now we're ready to bolt it down. Going to reinstall the original bolts and get them started and tighten them down. These tend to strip very easily so you want to get them snug but make sure you don't over crank them. Now we can go install our bracket. You want to install it with the Barton facing the backend of the car. We also need to remove this piece here first and install just the top half of the bracket. Slide the bracket up into place to the top of the tail of our shifter and push it up onto the original studs. Now, holding it in place, we'll reinstall the original retaining nuts. You don't want to tighten these down all the way. Just get them tight enough to hold it in place. We're going to install the lower part of the bracket. Again, just get them hand tight for now.

Now we'll tighten down the nuts that are holding the bracket to the floor and you'll want to tighten down the two bolts to the lower part of the bracket. Now we're ready to move back to the interior. Now we're ready to install our lower shift boot. This step may not seem terribly important, but if this isn't seated properly it's going to really affect the performance of the shifter. This ring here must be installed around the machine groove built into the shifter. We can put our sound deadening back into place and we can reinstall the top of our console. Don't forget to plug in your switches again. Now for the last step reinstall your shift knob. Installation finished. Shifter feels good but you're only going to really test the performance if you take it for a test drive. Barton is a huge improvement over the stock shifter. It goes into gear real easily, nice and short as well. Since this is the boss's car we want to take it easy. The Barton shifter performed exactly as advertised, short crisp shifts and no noticeable increase in noise or vibration. Installation should take you no more than around two hours. You'll be back on the road in no time.
