Hey guys well my birthday Is coming up and I think my first upgrade is going to be a barton short throw shifter. The only thing I'm worrying about is will ford put it on for me and will it void my warrenty?
Ford will find any minimal reason to void warranty, just make sure u a fair amount of miles and know your trans is solid before make the leapHey guys well my birthday Is coming up and I think my first upgrade is going to be a barton short throw shifter.

Doubt Ford themselves will do it unless its a Ford Racing part, which I'm sure Barton is the same but they will never admit it... But I'm sure u can find a local speed shop that can do it for u. I would also highly recommend getting the bracket to add to the shifter, since the factory bracket is the biggest problem with our trannies... I went with the 2 post bracket and the shifts feel pretty solid nowTrue thanks for the info. Also do you think they will install that for me. I don't have access to the lift
Well the thing is that the bracket is the biggest problem with the MT82, the factory throws are actually not bad at all... Adding the short shifter only, u will still get more missed shifts under spirited drivingI think that's what I'm goin to do only thing is the bracket is 75$ and the whole shifter is 350
How good is the 2 post vs the reg barton bracketSpend the $110 and get the Barton 2 post, the main difference between my stock shifter with the Barton two post and my MGW is that the MGW has shorter throws and wayyyy less nvh. But the Barton two post turns a seemingly garbage shifter into an amazing piece of equipment
What is NVH? Sorry I'm a noob aI just installed the Barton short shifter and 2 post bracket on ramps and jack stands. I love it!!! I was worried at first because it seems to have moved first and second more towards the center and I thought I messed up but I guess this is normal??
To explain this more I can't hold left all the way to get either first or second which has made me miss second a couple of times at high rpm shifts.
As far as NVH. I honestly can't even tell anything has changed until I actually change gears, then I do get a mechanical sound but I enjoy it and do t believe it adds anything unwanted. Whatever you choice enjoy!
I can deal with that. I was actually thinking about the MGW shifter but I heard it takes a wile to ship and its a more expensive.Yea as far as nvh it's only on start up (sounds like the starter is in the passenger seat) and upon shifting, but the MGW has very little of either of those, mostly thanks to the dynamat
