Reliable Shifting. Minimize miss-shifts and high RPM lockout by upgrading with the Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket. This unique bracket attaches directly to the transmission in order to eliminate the flex and twist that's associate with the semi-remote stock body mount. It ensures a perfectly aligned shifter, giving you a reliable, accurate shift and in turn prolonging the life of your Mustang's transmission synchros even with a stock shifter. This upgraded design also features an isolated rear mount to prevent noise, ensuring reliable, quiet street performance.
Integrated Safety Loop. This Shifter Support Bracket includes an integrated NHRA legal driveshaft safety loop. You'll not only gain more reliable shifting, but also knock out the NHRA requirement for vehicles running 12.99 or faster in the quarter mile.
Aftermarket Compatible. This Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket is engineered for practical performance and is compatible with aftermarket shifting solutions with the exception of MGW's Race Shifting. All the necessary brackets are included to ensure you're able to make the most out of your build.
Bolt-On Installation. Designed as a simple, bolt-on upgrade, this Mustang Shifter Support Bracket won't require any modification to your car for installation. Blowfish provides all the necessary installation hardware and easy to follow instructions to make upgrading a quick and painless process.
Application. This Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket is designed for 2011-2014 GT, V6 and BOSS Mustangs equipped with a MT82 manual transmission.

A HUGE DIFFERENCE
I installed the Barton short throw shifter a few months ago thinking that would solve my lockout issues. Considering I still had the stock bracket, I was wrong and would continue to miss 2nd or 3rd while shifting above 6800 RPM. I decided to pick this up and the install took about an hour using jack stands. The test drive went amazing! The notchiness disappeared and the car effortlessly shifted into each gear doing some hard pulls. Very satisfied, this is my favorite modification out of the many I’ve done to my 2014 5.0.Helpful (0)

I run my Mustang on a 14 corner road course all summer. Constantly get locked out of second to third shifts when coming out of corners at high revs. Have trans cooler, Barton shifter and bracket and run fresh fluid every year. Blowfish was the missing link! Solid, fast and reliable shifts now, even high rpm! You feel connected to the transmission now.Helpful (5)

Shifts amazingly now!
Turns my locked out high rpm 2nd and 3rd shifts into crisp, smooth, perfect shifts! Couldn't be happier. Slight NVH but my car is catless and loud already so its hardly noticeable for me.Helpful (2)

Good but not great.
I guess I expected more from the installation of this. It improves the feel, but nothing will make it shift like an old school T5. Mine had already had the Barton bracket, maybe I would’ve noticed it more if it didn’t.Helpful (0)

Mt 82 cure
Had issues getting locked out of gears with the stock remote mount, even with ford racing short throw shifting north of 5k rpms. This definitely helped with “spirited” driving. No more missed gears at 6500 rpm.Helpful (5)

Despite not having any instructions (thank god for youtube) it was a semi easy install on jack stands. This was the first time I had no issues going from 2nd to 3rd when getting on it. Hallelujah!Helpful (3)

Loving the support and stiffness it gives to the shifter. Great add on is the safety loop. Didn’t take me to long to install. I wish it came with supplied lock tight.Helpful (2)

Night and day
Night and day difference, I haven’t missed third at the track since install, just wish I would have done it sooner and the safety loop is a added bonus, highly recommended for mustangs with a manual transHelpful (3)
Is the blowfish shifter support bracket necessary if I mount a barton hybrid 3 to the trans? Thanks
This Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket would not be necessary with the Barton Hybrid 3 shifter.
I have a 2013 GT with the Ford Performance Short Throw Shifter and Bracket - MT-82 (11-14 GT) item # 50481. Do I need to remove the bracket? Is my shifter compatible with this bracket? Mike
The Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket - Street - MT-82 works in conjunction with aftermarket shifters including your Ford Performance short throw shifter. You will need to remove the factory/aftermarket rear shifter support bracket with the installation of this product.
I am planning on purchasing the Barton short throw shifter and two post bracket along with the Blowfish transmission mount. Does the Blowfish mount make it unnecessary to purchase the two post bracket from Barton? Should I just order the short throw without the bracket?
The Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket would not be compatible with the Barton Industries Two-Post Shifter Bracket, or other shifter brackets, as this has a built in shifter bracket.
I have an ‘07 GT, 4.6 with a TR6060, MGW shifter. The shifter is a bit clunky 1st to 2nd, would this fit and possibly relieve any binding?
