Finally, installed Barton Shifter Bracket

After sitting on the Barton Two Post Shifter Bracket for a couple of months, I finally installed it today at a friends shop. Install time was about an hour.

So far I am pleased with the stock shifter now. Seems much better. A couple of hard pulls testing the 2nd to 3rd shift at 7000 rpm and no problems. With the stock setup, I missed half the time. Just didn't want to go into 3rd easily. Now everything seems to just "click..."

Looks good! I've been thinking about doing that to mine. The shifter isn't bad but definitely needs improvement

This is a nice improvement. The shifter is already short enough for me. But, the sloppiness was just too much. This bracket really fixed it...

What's the difference between the 2 post bracket and the regular bracket that barton offers?
