Bought my childhood dream car! hello from Sacramento!

Hi Everyone, my name is Shawn and I recently bought a 2014 GT/CS in deep impact blue (pics below) she is a 6 speed manual stock for the moment. I have always been a mustang fan since i was about 7 years old and my dream car is everything i imagined it would be.

Except for one little thing: Ive driven manual before both normal manual and short throw, under normal drivving i can get into 3rd gear just fine but when im planting my foot to the ground it has NEVER gone into 3rd gear ever. I was really disappointed with this shifter and im hoping I can get some advice from the gurus here.

I found this:
MT-82 SHORT THROW SHIFTER
and I was hoping for some feedback if this would solve my issue or not? im no car parts install expert but if i were to take this to my local Ford dealer would they be able to do it?

and as promised pics below-thanks everyone!

Nice looking car!! I would look around americanmuscle.com. after you get 50 posts you get a 6% discount. I imagine any quality short throw will fix your issue and have you completely loving your car

Nice Mustang!! I live in Sacramento as well, more of the Elk Grove area. But I'm in the Bay Area for school right now.

Congrats!!! I keep seeing people say their having a hard time with third gear. I guess I must be extremely lucky cause I have not had 1 issue with that.

I wouldn't be happy about that. My last three mustangs got steeda tri-ax shifters. So far this one does not seem to need it. Keeping my fingers crossed.

haha no worries, yes the DIB color is something different. originally i was going for red but i saw a DIB focus and said nope thats what i want. When time came to pick packages I decided on the GT/CS and I too love the lip up front and the diffuser in the back
