MGW is the highest quality and well designed shifter out there. Period. Second would be Steeda.

I had the barton... hten it snapped in half WHILE I was shifting driving down the road. Switched to MGW and you cant even compare. MGW is a better shifter and it resolves the slip at high RPM issue

Granted I've got a 13, but having used both a barton and now MGW shifter on mine there isn't even a comparison. MGW all the way.

After a lot of research and against the answers on this forum . I decided on the Barton. I would say it was 60% MGW and 40% Barton . There was a 15% discount on Black Friday that was too much savings to pass up. Install was pretty easy on jack stands. I did take the transmission cross member off . Put the floor jack under the tail shaft in order to gain a little more room. I got the satin flat stick option and polished it up with a buffing wheel and was able to use my billet shifter ball from AM that was on my stock shifter. I have not been able to drive it yet as snow and salt season has begun. I can not wait until spring. The throw is much shorter than stock. Sorry about the upside down one. I flipped it in my album and it still comes out upside down. Damn IPhone.

You will like the Barton over the factory shifter. However, if you get a chance, drive a Mustang with an MGW 😁

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how the Hurst shifter compares to MGW and Barton? I put a Hurst in mine years ago and I have no complaints, but have not driven one with either a Barton or MGW.

Barton or MGW

I’ve had the Hurst for about 4.5K-ish now; I’m ready for a MGW once I TR6060 swap both my 3V’s.

Finally took the car out of hibernation. First drive with the new shifter. It is notchy but in a good way. I am thinking that it will have a break in period and be a little smoother. I do like it and can shift to all gears without lifting my arm off of the console or having to lean forward in the seat to get into fifth gear.
