Short throw shifter

I've been thinking about getting a short throw shifter, I just would like to know which one is the best and If there worth it, any ideas?

BadAssStang07,

There's quite a few threads on this topic you'll find on the forum. I'd try a few searches to see even more opinions if you're interested.

Personally, I think you'll quickly discover there's a few solid options out there for shifters. Most people feel they're very much worth the cost and installation effort. Now, where you'll find the most differences is what company to go with.

Personally, I've always used Barton short throw shifters on my own Mustangs and all of our AM Mustangs. Barton is really on their game as far as quality, price and functionality. Their shifters reduce throw up to 40% compared to stock and the shifts are smooth yet crisp!

Hope this helps you out! If you have more questions, I'd be happy to answer them too.

Shane

I went with MGW & it was definitely worth it. The shifter it's self feels so durable & high quality. You can adjust the throw reduction to almost 50% & I get alot of complements on It as well. & you'll never miss 3rd, the springs are real strong & really help when shifting from 2nd to 3rd.

I too have an MGW in my 06 GT and it's great. After much reading I decided that the MGW was the best value i.e. quality & reliability versus price. Great shifter, you wont be disappointed.
