Barton 2-post or Regular Barton Shifter Bracket

So I'm buying a shifter bracket for my 14' GT and I was wondering if I should go with the 2-post or the regular barton shifter bracket. Is there any real advantage with the 2-post? Any insite on this would be great thanks.

The 2-post design allows for front to back motion of the drive train under hard acceleration. Basically it will eliminate side-to-side movement just like the original, but by allowing front to back motion it reduces alot of vibration coming up threw the shifter. Get the 2-post, its worth it. I love mine.

Barton short throw and 2 post bracket.

Hey, has anyone who installed, or know someone who installed the Barton short throw and 2 post bracket, had problems initially after instillation? I just installed mine and it seems to "shutter" or whatever when revving the engine? Also when I go to take off and just slowly release the clutch to move without adding any other acceleration it seems as if it wants to kill when normally on the stock system is keeps the RPM's at 1k or so. Any ideas?

Not sure why its dying when you take off, but what do you mean by shutter when revving?? The barton setup will have more vibration and noise then the stock shifter and bracket, due to the fact the the bracket is metal, and not rubber. I would double check to make sure that the bolts on the bracket are tight, and were evenly drawn in. If the extra road noise and vibs bother you, put some sound deadening meterial around the shifter under the center console.

thanks for the reply, yea I tightened up the bolts a 1/4 turn more and it feels better. That makes sense now, about the vibrations, considering the stock bracket is like 75% rubber, and the 2 post is all metal. The vibrations when revving is apparently the torquing of the engine, or so i was told by my car savvy friend. I Love the reduction but i will say the noise is barely audible, vibrations are quite noticeable, and its a little harsh. Then again this is my first short throw shifter, and its hard to compare to other manufacturers.

Finally, an honest review.

Yeah i will agree with you. I love mine tho. The extra noise and vibrations bothered me a bit at first, but i got used to it fast. With the way the shifts feel now, its worth it.
