Installed shifter today in our 2ss! It took about an hour and I did not seem to have the trouble with the boot that everyone talks about. I hooked the front corners of the boot first and then pulled toward the back to pull up into place. I love the feel of the shifter! I used the stock shifter ball as my wife likes it better! She is not as excited about the feel yet, but maybe after she drives it a while it will grow on her. Great product! I did opt to extend to full length so that it would be less rigid feeling for my wife when she drives the car.

Hey Sparks, how was the noise when you set the stick all the way up? I noticed that the further up you go, the more noise you get. That's been my experience anyway.

Mine was had a lot of noise under hard acceleration......The cause of this was i all ready had the knob and thread kit, So the one i orderd was just the stick for the stock knob and for some reason it would not tighten up enough so i just had to pull the pist grip off and install the factory knob...... I tried thread locker but still had a buzz but with the stock knob its as quiet as can be......Other then that great shifter!!!!

Yeah, I'm having the same problem. I tried Loctite and plumbing tape and it still buzzes. I even used dynamat on it like the Hurst guys are doing but it didn't help much. It's not real bad but it's enough to make me want to put the stock knob back on. Kind of a shame 'cause I really like the look of the black SS knob.

Were you guys part of the first run or the second run? I heard a lot of good things from the guys from the first run and I don't remember anyone talking about significant noice problems.

Need to make sure all threads in the shaft are tight and that the dust boot is properly installed. I know it sounds weird but if that boot is installed wrong the noise will be there. If it is the knob that's rattling call Barton. I have installed 4 of these sticks and everyone has been quiet and tight. I would advise going through the install again and if that doesn't work call Barton !

Well, I revisited the Dynamat solution and seemed to do the trick. Mine's real quiet now. I HATED having to take the dust boot off again but I'm glad I did. I guess it's possible that I F'd up the install but it was pretty straight forward so I don't see where I could have gone wrong. Oh well, problem solved I guess. By the way, mine was part of the second run.

VERY nice! Looks sick! I checked out the Hurst video and it seemed more notchy. This one seems smooth. And 1/2 the price.

It does not look like you lower your transmission to install it. I wander why do you have to lower the tranny when installing the MTI shifter?

on my car i lowered the tranny to install it, on the other two i installed, i did not have to lower the tranny to do the install.





on another note,
i am still amazed at the quality of this shifter and how great it works. i have no rattles and it has the smoothest shifts i have ever felt

And here's what happens if you don't install the boot correctly and it ends up getting pulled off by the drive shaft

Ouch ! Sorry to see that. That boot has to be the biggest PIA in the whole install.

is it necessary to grease anything up while installing this? Any other tips for this install? I will be installing this in a few days and I'm very inexperienced :0

Love that black pistol grip pictured....and the Iron cross too. I didn't see on Bartons site for color choices or custom engraves. Can anyone elaborate, or did the OP have his custom done?
