I did some research into the short throw shifters on the market for the MT-82 trans and finally settled with this one. This is the same product that Ford Racing uses for their own short throw shifter, contracted through Barton Industries, and I can see why. The install was straight-forward and didn't take more than an hour (including the time to put the car on jack stands) Everything fits nicely where it belongs. The new shifter definitely firms up the sloppy shifts of the original. Throw is reduced without shortening the already tight shift gate. Reverse is difficult to get to at first and there is a noticeable increase in trans and road noise. The shifter was almost uncomfortably notchy at first, but settled nicely and became more usable after a week or so. Now I can't remember what my car was like before. You won't be dissappointed

The Barton Short Throw Shifter & Billet Bracket is an easy modification to any late model Mustang with the MT-82, 6-speed transmission. A vehicle lift or jack stands are a must for the bracket installation. This shifter also gives you more bang for your buck when it comes to the price compared to other shifters. The manufacturer, Barton Industries, also makes the Ford Racing shifter (M-7210-MGTB) which is the same high quality but with a slightly different billet bracket. I highly recommend the Barton Short Throw Shifter & Billet Bracket Kit for any late model (11-14) manual transmission Mustang owner.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Testimonial: About 5.0 Resto Service
Well me and my girlfriend had a day off and decided to take a road trip to Late Model Restoration. Let me tell you, we had the best CUSTOMER SERVICE ever. Jay was very helpful and knowledgeable about the parts I purchased. The showroom was clean and inviting. Also I got to meet JMAC that host's all of their YouTube videos. They also had project BLUE COLLAR in the parking lot, and it is NICE. I will recommend Late Model to everyone I know...
