Hey Iím Justin from, and Iím going to be breaking down the shifter bracket fitting the mt82 transmission found on all 2011 and newer GT and V6 Mustangs. This bracket from is going to help improve the overall shifter feel while helping to eliminate any annoying mis shifts, both the stock shifter and with any aftermarket shifter. Itís also going to help eliminate any sloppiness that can sometimes be found with this six speed NPD 2 transmissions. Weíre going to break this bracket down a little further in a minute but first weíre going to get our 2013 GT out of the shop, take it for a test spin with that stock bracket installed, that way we can do a proper before and after when we get the unit installed. Alright so weíre out in the 2013 GT before we get the bracket installed, and you know Ford really did do a good job with this shifter, the throws are nice and short, the action is pretty crisp, but if thereís any reoccurring theme, itís the crunchiness trying to go from 1st to second, or second to third in the upper RPM range. Hopefully our bracket will take some of the sloppiness out of the stock shifter, and help improve those shifts. So thereís really only one way to find out, letís get our car back to the shop, talk a little bit more about the bracket, and then get it installed. This bracket really improves the shifter feel thanks to its superior construction, for one the bracket has been CNCíd from a single block of aircraft grade T6 Billet aluminum, which is going to help prevent it from flexing under hard shifts, like the factory bracket does. Another improvement is the inclusion of these high quality polyurethane bushings, that replace the soft factory bushings. Again, this is just going to firm everything up, get rid of some of the notchiness, and overall make for firm, crisp shifts. This bracket will of course fit any stock MT 82 shifters, or any aftermarket shifters that reuse the factory shifter housing. As for the install, itís really not all that bad, you will need to crawl underneath the car, but itíll just be a few bolts and about a half hourís worth of your time. With the bracket installed letís take our 2013 out one more time and see if weíve improved on our shifting experience. Alright so weíre back in our í13 GT with the bracket installed, and letís put this thing to the test shall we? Alright, there you go, two shifts at redline, no issues whatsoever getting into gear, this bracket is definitely working a lot better for us now. You can thank those stronger materials, the Billet aluminum construction, the polyurethane bushings, and overall, this thing works man, thatís all I can tell you.
