Published on 2013-10-22
The Barton Industries short throw shifter is one of the first performance mods you should consider for your new S197 Mustang. Developed for the new 2011-13 Ford Mustang 5.0L V8 and 3.7L V6 equipped with a MT82 6-Speed Manual Transmission, it greatly reduces your shift throw - a whopping 40% reduction. Due to its dual pivot trunnion design you will have smooth clean shifts not found on the factory shifter.
Finish off your shifter installation with a Barton Shifter bracket to reduce deflection in your transmission. It will help reduce missed shifts and aggressive driving and racing conditions. No more mushy shifter!!!
Barton Shifters are available for the following year model Mustangs: 2005 (05) - 2006 (06) - 2007 (07) - 2008 (08) - 2009 (09) - 2010 (10) - 2011 (11) - 2012 (12) - 2013 (13) - 2014 (14)
If you're looking to drastically improve the shift feel and reduce the shift throw by about 40% on your 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT or V6, you need a Barton shifter. This shifter is constructed of billet aluminum and stainless steel. And retains into factory, reverse lockout, as well as reverse camera sensing options.
