I think the stock fluid is already synthetic ... however Ford has put two different weight fluids in the transmission, eventually moving to a lighter weight fluid, I believe.
I have the Barton shifter as well as Barton Bracket 1.0 and I personally like the heavy duty, notchy, mechanical feel of the shifts. The instructions that came with the shifter indicate that is how it's supposed to feel. Comes down to preference, I guess.
