Thumbs up 2011 5.0 Short Throw Shifter-anyone?

By now Steeda, Barton Industries-and recently Hurst-are all offering short throw shifters, for the new `11 GT 5.0 6 speed manual transmission. I've always had a short throw shifter -and all of my Mustangs and Cobras-but have not "stepped up", yet... Has anyone installed one on their `11 GT, yet? `Ease of installation? `Driving/ shifting impressions?

ive put one on an 08 gt and it wasnt that bad, couple bolts suck to get to with the driveshaft in the way kinda but its not very bad overall.

MGW almost always if not always has the best most complete kit (sound deadening, shifter gaskets, etc etc etc and the best quality. So make SURE you consider them

Thanks. I know that they make good stuff-as others have recommended them-`just don't know if they have one in production? yet-for the `11 6 speed...

Re: 2011 5.0 Short Throw Shifter-anyone?

I Installed the Barton shifter and Barton shift bracket onto my 2011 GT. Straight forward install on jack stands. Easy fit take your time and do it right. When completed approximately 30 minutes. You will not believe the
difference. Great, solid feel with crisp shifts and quality construction.
YOU'LL NEVER HUNT FOR THIRD AGAIN.

Caution! make sure the boot is properly installed or it will interfere with reverse selection. Other than that I think this is the best shifter I have ever owned.

Great White: I did notice that it retails for 299. w/o the shift bracket, or 349. with. Will I need the shift barcket? Thanks.

I have had 12 mustangs over the last 25 years and have tried just about every short throw shifter out there and have to say MGW is by far the best shifter I've ever used.
