MGW Shelby GT500 Short Throw Shifter

After giving a preview of its new Shelby GT500 shifter back in July, the company has finally released full details and pricing for its latest product and has announced that is now taking orders. In addition to possessing the same patented features of their earlier model shifters (adjustable handle and sound dampening center shaft design), this new shifter has a first ever feature for a Mustang short throw shifter – a variable shift throw that the customer can fine tune to their personal preference. The shifter has a patent pending feature that actually allows the driver to adjust the throw from just a bit shorter than stock to almost 50 percent reduction in throw. Utilizing state of the art materials and design components, MGW has also engineered the shifter to offer both short throw and ease of shifting for all gears. No longer will the driver have to pull left left to right to find reverse, and very beefy return springs find 3rd every time. Pricing is listed at a reasonable $350.00.

MGW Shelby GT500 Shifter Features:

  • Throw is adjustable between a range of about 15 percent to 50 percent shorter than stock.
  • Shift knob can be adjusted in rotational position to fit drivers’ personal comfort settings.
  • Shifter kit comes complete with sound and thermal deflection technology to maintain near original OEM sound levels and even better heat insulation.
  • Shifter has strong lateral spring load to eliminate the 3rd gear lockout issue with the remote shifter design of the S197 Mustang. Finally, you can powershift from 2nd to 3rd without hesitation.
  • Shifter assembly is complete with no component pieces from original OEM shifter reused.
  • Some of the key included components not found on most other aftermarket shifters include:
    • Replacement transmission linkage bushings
    • MGW supplied higher durometer bushings on both sides of front support arms
    • Lock washers included for all connecting brackets
    • MGW CNC machines its own billet top plate to seal the shifter tunnel area
  • Shifter is available with your choice of shift knob shaft, one with the OEM 12 MM fine pitch threads and one with 12 MM coarse pitch for most aftermarket Mustang knobs.
  • Shifter assembly is completely machined from aircraft grade aluminum and all billet components are hard coat anodized for a lifetime of service. All steel components are aircraft grade stainless steel.
  • Shifter comes complete with video installation CD.
