crazy feel
This product is not only built Ford Tough but, the functionality of the moving parts are wonderful. smooth, tight and crisp feel. Now i did something that i don't think or know of someone doing it yet. I took to short shifters and made my percentage but, maintaining the factory feel and smoothness. So from what i hear on so many different forms is they installed a short shifter that was not mountune nor is it ford racing short shifter and found the percentage to be around 40-50 which can be adjusted. Now the other thing they say is that it is sometimes very hard to get in gear and what not. So i decided to do an experiment which to my surprise actually worked out to be the best. I took the mountune short shifter which reduces your throw to 25% and blended that with the Ford racing short shifter that reduces your throw 18%. Put that together and i got 43% fixed reduced throw. Not only is it hella fun to feel the distance travel is short but, to still also feel the oem quality precision and the stiffness. The only thing i say is i took risk at adding both which cost me 550-600 usd. It was all worth it. Hope this helps anyone who was thinking the same thing i was.

Booger to put in!
why ford put 4 screws in the RH top trim panel ( that was the hardest part to get out "after" removing the screws was rediculous! but other than that, about an hour and this baby was rolling. 100% better shift throw!
happy camper here.. a must in my opinion.

Good Valve & Fast Delivery
The short shifter is very precise but for Right Hand Drive ST , you need to transfer the original base to the short shifter. Overall is good to have it

Worth the price
Just had this shifter installed, and it's amazing! The throws feel like half of what they were. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to add to an already great driving experience. If you purchase this, you will not be disappointed!

Love results, Not a nice install
Love the results, crisp shifts and a good 18% reduction. First panel around the boot is the hardest to take off. Be aware that the panel around the base of the ebrake snaps easy, take your time. Another tip would be for the passenger side trim parts, dont push the button on the bottom all the way in untill the upper trim part is in and screwed in, then install that lower panel the rest of the way.... it should be hanging when the top trim is going in. Last tip, when disconnecting the harnesses for electrical be careful, the smaller one slides onto the new mount. if you just hank it, it will snap. In other words when taking it off do the disconnect and try to slide it off so the mount can be reused.

By Bill Tumas: So far, we’re having a lot of fun with our Focus ST project car. Between our cold air kit exhaust combined with our SCT tune, we've seen some nice improvements in both sound and performance. For our next modification, we're going to move it in the interior. If you like banging your own gears, most factory shifters are going to be a little bit on the vague side, and the Focus ST is no exception. Today, we're going to remove our factory shifter and replace it with a short throw shifter from Ford Racing.

The Ford Racing shifter includes a factory knob as well as a factory boot to keep that original look. The shifting mechanism itself, however, is going to provide 18% shorter throws than your factory shifter. It's going to install in the factory location, using all factory-mounting hardware.

For this installation, you need a panel removal tool, quarter-inch ratchet, 5.5mm socket, 10mm socket, and a short extension.

For a front wheel drive car, the Focus' shifter isn't terrible, but the throws are definitely in the longer side. We're looking forward to a nice improvement with our Ford Racing. We're going to start by removing the shift boot retainer located here. Basically, we're going to reach in the inside of the shift boot on the edge and carefully pull up.

Once you get the edge lifted up, you may want to use a panel removal tool and carefully work around the outside edge to get them off. The clips can be really tight to remove. Now separate the trim ring from the boot, pushing up on these little plastic tabs here. Now we're going to start disassembling the console. We're removing the three screws located here, here, and up here.

We're going to remove the trim panel. We're pulling it upward and out. To start removing the driver's side plastic trim, we've got to remove this push pin first, and there's five other attaching points that will come off once we remove the pin. Now we'll start pulling the panel away.

Now we'll pull up on the other side panel over here. The push pin on our passenger's side is located behind this panel. Now we're going to remove this panel the same way, pull out on it. Now we've got to disconnect the console harnesses right here. To remove the rest of the console, there's four more bolts we have to take off. Two of them are located here, and one on each side of the back of the console. Now we can remove the console.

Now that we have all the console pieces out of the way, you can see the shifter assembly itself. The next step will be to remove the two shifter cables located here and here. Now we can remove the four bolts that hold the shifter to the floor. We'll disconnect the shifter from the bottom of the dash.

Now we'll disconnect the shift cables from the retainers and reach on the far side of it. There's a spring. You push it down and slide the cable up and out. We're going to remove our stock shifter.

Here you can see the Ford Racing shifter. First the stock shifter we just removed. You can see they have the same OEM base, same knob and same boot. The Ford Racing's obviously much shorter. It's going to be shorter throws. Pull the boots back, and pull the shifter handles back. See the internals have also been upgraded. Not only is it a shorter throw shifter, all this plastic in here has been replaced by heavy-duty billet aluminum.

Now to install our new shifter, we basically just do the reverse of what we did to remove the old one. Now we can reconnect the shift cables. Before we reinstall everything, it's a good time to check, make sure the car goes into gear like it's supposed to. You can feel the nice and short already. We'll try reverse. Everything feels good, and we can reinstall our console.

Now that the console's seated, we'll reinstall the front screws, and now the rear screws. We can reconnect the wiring harness. We'll reinstall the side trim panel. Now the driver's side panel. Now the driver's side trim panel. Now our passenger's side trim panel. Reinstall the three small screws we removed. Now we'll put the boot into our original trim plate, and snap the trim plate into place. Now our installation is finished.

The height of this shifter is perfect. Right when you have your elbow resting on the center console, it's right where it should be. I always felt the stock shifter was a little too high for me. This is a lot more comfortable. I can keep my elbow actually on the console and shift through every gear. Ford says 18% shorter, it feels every bit of that at least.

Our Ford Racing shifter worked exactly as advertised. The throws are noticeably shorter and the height of the shifter is absolutely perfect. Installation should take you around two hours. You'll be back on the road in no time.
