Stock shifter and barton bracket

I just installed the Barton bracket and what a change. I never miss third gear and there was no real increase noise noticed while driving except if shifting hard and fast the gear change is a nice solid click. For the price it's hard to beat and there is no down side.

Sounds good man im doing mine soon with new amsoil sychromesh fluid... My tranny has been good accept for the annoying whine when cruising a slow speeds... Hopefully the better fluids lubricate the bearings better the the stock fluids

It's a very reasonably priced add on that resolves the issue. I love the stock shifter and never had problems instill it got hot at the drag strip

I've got the two post and love it. Anyone know how hard it is to change the fluid on my own? Or if not how much to get it done?

I have the two post, it cleans everything up except the notchiness going into second. Also, increased NVH

Steeda in mine, no NVH increase on the red bushing (stiffer choice is provided, if you like) and it's been down track over 100 times on slicks without problems.

I think whichever is chosen,this is mod #1 on a MT 2011+ Mustang.

I've had my two piece Barton bracket for about 4 months now, and I think it's even better now that it's broken in. I was previously getting gear lockout upshifting every once in a while under WOT, and especially while cornering hard... it's now completely eliminated, and if I miss a gear I know it's my fault in the direction of the shift and not the car's. What a great ~$100 investment.

If you guys like the bracket get yourself the barton short shifter it's well worth it.

I installed the two post bracket and shifter this morning thanks to a great deal from a fellow member here. It is great I did both at the same time and definitely cleaned up the sloppy shifts. Pretty easy install dust boot was a little aggravating. It's louder thank the stock setup but I would recommend it as a must have mod for anyone with a mt82 mustang.

Glad it worked out for u, to relieve that sound as if the starter is right next to u, I would suggest adding some universal insulation from Home Depot into all that open area under the console to dampen the noise... I meant to put some extra that I had in the shipment but I kinda forgot -_-

Yeah I thought about maybe throwing some dynamat in there as well but honestly it isn't that bad, maybe I was just expecting it to be really loud from all the reviews I read but I was actually pleasantly surprised.

If you watch the mgw install video, they tell you to put a small band of dynamat on the rods, to stop the shifter from transmitting nvh.
