amazing shifter .... i love it !!! i have it its amazing its short af it is extremely precise i havent missed a gear .. only thing to remember is if yours is a 2013 you have to do a lil modding to the shifter so you retain the reverse lock out function but its an amazing shifter !!!!

This turned into a pretty good debate a couple of months ago and everyone was saying good things about the MGW shifter. Black on boss actually took his V6 to their shop for instal and swears by them. It depends on if you want now or are willing to wait up to a month for MGW to fab one for you.

Barton is a great product. I don't have their shifter but I have their v1 bracket. Best investment ever!! I do have a short shifter I just forgot what brand it is already. Lol. But it works great as well!

The barton shifter and 2post bracket is the great BUT thats if ur not willing to spend the big bucks for the good sh*t. Im talking about the MGW shifter. That is the BEST!!! but unless ur willing to shell out 390 then go with the barton and bracket.

The MGW is the best because it doesnt just change the upper shifter assembly it changes the lower assembly as well. So its like getting a new tranny hahaha

Lol you're talking about a difference of $20 here between the Barton w/ 2 post and the MGW, I wouldn't say that's really "spending the big bucks for the good sh*t". The Barton is $369.99 for the 2-post combo, MGW is $390.

You do get a bracket with the MGW, they just consider it part of the shifter since they replace the whole assembly. If you buy one you will see.

I recently purchased an MGW shifter and it is SOLID. Really short throws and firm shifts. Although my GT is an 03 I don't see why the shifters for the newer stangs wouldn't be just as good. Can't speak for Barton since I haven't tried one but if you decide MGW you will not be dissapointed!

That sale them direct. I have seen them on the svtperformance sight but that should reflect the direct MgW purchase - I think that SVT Is now a supporter of MgW. Other sights will attempt to charge you more and you do not know which upgraded version you are getting. Plus I MGW may not cover it. Be safe and order direct from MgW no matter how appealing the offer is.

What are everyone's thoughts on replacing just the bracket? Is that enough of an improvement in shift smoothness on its own, or is it more of a tide-you-over-until-you-get-a-full-assembly kind of thing?

I heard only one guy say that he was in love with the baron set up....then he admitted that his mustang was not a MT-82 trans variant. I never had anything else than the MGW that is Due in.

The shifter is in and it feels great , nice tight short crisp shifts......first gear is a bit of a PITA feels like ur in then it grinds when u let the clutch out hope this is some kind of breaks in issue....

I think there is a feature that you can adjust. Something called a lock out adjustment I believe. It is a screw that separates the distance from the reverse gear for smoother shifts. On the older MGW versions, it was not adjustable. Now it is. You have to look at the complete video if you have Not already done so. Hope I said all correctly. Let me know if this works.

No...

1. I thought that it comes at six already...I must have misread.

2. The adjustment is in the top area. All you have to do is take off the knob, console, and boot to get to the screw set as I recall. That should be In the instructions too. Google search 'MGW reviews'. Then select the one that says 'svtperformance review'. With in that article, you should see the most updated video for MGW installation.

Let me know what you think.

I also did not think that it should work but I found a guy that had a similar problem in a forum. Modifying that fixed the problem. if you look at the black blocking the left of the shifter, the screw should is separating or closing the distance between your reverse gear based on the drivers preference.

I have not looked at that video since a week ago and am surprised that I remember as much as I (think) I do without looking at it again.

If I remember right it is even in the manual saying your new 2012 mustang does not have a spare but this air compressor thing.
