He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2018, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

Short Shifter from Ford Performance Installed!

A nice addition to the car.  Had to do it and the car yearns for it.  My family gifted it to me for Fathers Day and I finally had a cool, clear summer day to get after it.

The only reason I share this story is - this job is not best done on ramps with a creeper.  What a complete PITA!  At least the mid-shaft didn’t have to come down but, it’s tight in there!

20 years ago this would have been cake.  My midriff is “somewhat” larger than when I was 35.  Yikes.  I need to exercise more, but I digress.  This job needs a lift and BB’s Autorama is too far away. ;)

Funny, that’s the only car I haven’t done a shifter on. I really like the stocker. :headscratch: 

What am I missing? Describe the change for us!! :rockon:

Hey there!

I had a chance to put a few miles in yesterday - we had a beautiful, clear, cool day in NJ and a really nice evening for a cruise.

The biggest impression is the reduced throw (TY Capt. Obvious!).  The shaft is shorter from the pivot-point up, dimensions below are identical.  The move through the gates seems more positive, especially where the Tremec likes it - up above 5K.  It snicks into gear more positively than the stocker.  I don't think it's just the placebo effect - it's that significant (at least to me).  The FP part has no vibration isolation - no nylon ball, no nylon isolator in the shaft weight, nuthin.  So there IS more trans noise and absolutely more feel transmitted to the shift ball.  But I like that. :drool: My wife, not so much.  :rant:  "Sorry honey".

So, I suppose it's all about preference.  For my purposes, I got what I expected and therefore am happy to endure the back-ache I had this morning from laying in the driveway on Saturday.  :thumbsup:

Thank you for the specific description of improvement! Sounds awesome. 

I did an FRPP in my BOSS..... Does it look like mine? (Built for them by Barton Ind.) Cuz aren’t these tranny’s the same?

THAT - is an awesome piece of fabrication! :worship:

Upon reviewing, I was compelled to grab myself in a very obscene manner.   Amazing what turns me on these days. :drool:

The FP part isn’t quite that exciting.

Transmissions between Boss and GT350 are completely different, Boss trans is a MT82 where the GT350 is a Tremec

I thought I read the 350’s had MT82’s. :shrug: 

The 350's have the TR3160
