Short throw shifter

Looking to swap out my stock shifter for an aftermarket. Tired of the long throw on the stock shifter. 12' 5.0 six speed.

Barton shifter and their 2 post bracket has served me far beyond well. I know the MGW is a great piece with a certain status attached to it, but I wouldn't trade my Barton for any of the competitors.

30%

It's the best aftermarket shifter on the market for our tranny. It replaces the entire shifter.

Personally don't care just thought it was funny. I think the MGW has the perfect throw.

Sounds like a solid plan to me. You'll have a nice ride back to enjoy it!

Hmm 40% to 25% sounds like a pretty massive jump. If I'm getting a short throw shifter then the one with the less amount of throw would be logical right?

There is also preciseness to deal with. There are lots of shifters with a short throw but feel very notchy. You can have a shifter with a long throw but if its clean and crisp shifts then you can still slam through the gears just as easy.

MGW and Barton are both fantastic brands, either one will make you happy... The MGW also has adjustable shift stops...
This is the info given on MGW's website "Throw is adjustable between a range of about 15 percent shorter than stock to 50 percent. "

I watched a video of an install of the MGW and it looks pretty easy. I'll probably end up with the MGW for now then maybe try the Barton later. I appreciate all the feedback!

The Barton shifter took me 20 mins to install. It was very easy. Everyone who had driven my car is amazed at how short the throw is

Mine is a 13 gt with 3:73, installed the mgw after 2,500 miles. Now have close to 6K and all I can impart is dump the stock and get an mgw.

Lol I'm gonna call them tomorrow and see if they have one in stock they can put on for me. If they do I'm gonna make the drive. It'll be worth the drive to not have to wait and they will install it for free.

I just got off the phone with MGW and they said they will have them in stock next week. Also they will install for free, you just have to set up an appointment with them. The nice lady said that they already 75+ shifters on order to fulfill but they will ship out as soon as they get the individual parts to assemble them.

I just ordered the Barton short throw shifter from www.americanmuscle.com. I couldn't pass it up since it was on sale and had the ME forum discount! I've already changed the stock shifter bracket to the Barton 2-post bracket which has stiffened the shifts dramatically! Barton industries products rock!

How was the noise level after you installed your new shifter? I see the MGW comes with some sound dampening material in the kit.

I don't notice any difference compared to the stock shifter but I always have my stereo on

I have the Barton with 2 post and it was quite louder... When starting the car, it sounds like the starter is right next to you... I dampened the noise by adding some Dynamat around the shifter base and some universal insulation from Home Depot... There's plenty of empty space under the center console

I'm seriously considering the MGW. $440 is a lot of jack for a shifter though. I wish I could try one before I buy lol.
