    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.

    • No, this Blowfish Manual Transmission Shifter Support Bracket is meant for 11-14 Mustang GT and V6 models. We currently do not carry a shifter support bracket for your year or transmission.

      WOW, SHIFT WITH CONFIDENCE!

      Shifting gears got to be a tenuous experience with my car. I never knew when it would make an embarrassingly loud grind. Worse was the fear of a 3rd gear lockout and wondering how bad the damage had become. WELL FEAR NO MORE! The shifter is noticeably tighter and very positive. I already had the FORD short throw shifter (without bracket) and it was nice but loose. This bracket tightened thing up considerably and you notice it right away. It's almost strange at first but you get used to it quickly. There is a little vibration noise present but you have to listen for it. It's not that obvious and I find it's only under hard acceleration. All in all a miniscule price to pay for the benefits of positive shifts and not damaging your scyncros.

      Problem solved!

      With the stock shifter setup, when I would get on it and go to make the 2-3 shift, it was like the gate was nowhere to be found. With the Blowfish bracket (and the Hurst Competition Plus shifter) installed, missed shifts are a thing of the past! Ford should be shot for making the stock arrangement and not correcting it over the years!!

      Great Piece!

      Fun, simple project for my first mod on my new, used '12 GT. Initially, I felt the shifting experience numb. Preferred "old school" connection with the power train. This did the trick. A bit easier finding the gears but wishing I picked up a shifter along with this. Looks great, though no one can see it. The built in loop's a great add on which kind of equalizes the price, eh?

      HUGE difference

      Love the way it feels now. While noise and vibration is now present, it feels like a real car and not some drive by wire feeling. I would get lockout from 1st to 2nd under the most mild of aggressive driving. No more. The only reason you shouldn't get this is if you really couldn't handle the increase in noise and vibration.

      Lockout cure!

      After fighting high rpm lockout issues even after a Barton short shifter and 2 post, this seems like the best possible remedy. This smoothed out the shifting so much I couldn't believe it, there is some noise under hard acceleration but nothing that is not livable.

      Blowfish MT-82 shifter support

      It has done exactly what it advertises. Shifting is very precise in all RPM ranges, and only really experience extra noise in 3rd gear. This product was easy to install on my 2011 Mustang GT. I do still have issues finding first gear at a dead stop, but I'll accept that.

      Great product for solid shifts

      I had the same bracket on my 2011 mustang. Since i put on this unit i have have zero miss shifts. I combined with barton shifter and a mcloed ss clutch line. Also put in Royal Purple trans fluid.. only issues are road noise are bad at times. Also had a thread missing in the aluminum bracket for the snout and had to thread it. Not a huge deal for me but....

      Blowfish Barton. A one two punch!

      I installed the Blowfish support and a Barton short throw shifter. The change is astounding! I did it in my garage with jackstands and everything went together perfectly. Don't second guess the decision to make these upgrades. The only disappointment will be that you didn't do it sooner.

      Wow

      Easy to install.. never thought I would be able to shift that smooth at high rpm untill I installed the blowfish mount. Down side is with a Barton short throw shifter I do hear a slight vibration usually between 1st and 3rd gears occasionally but not every time.. I do recommend this product especially if you go to the track.

      Poor Customer Support

      This Manual Transmission Shifter does not work with the MGW X-Spec Shifter as stated on their web site. I purchased this item to install on my 2014 Mustang GT and took to my Mustang mechanic and they said it could not be installed. I have emailed Blowfish Racing, called them, left voice mail and have heard nothing back from them. Called MGW and they say it will not work and the Blowfish web site information is incorrect.

      A solid mod for the price

      Heard this would help stop all high RPM lockout when shifting over 6K, in a way it does just that but you have to manhandle into gear (doesn’t grind the gear). Not sure if it was due to the fact i’m running an aftermarket short throw shifter but there’s no real cons over all this. Already ordered a Steeda Trans. mount so I predict with both of these combos together i’m sure it’ll fix all High RPM lockouts in the future. Installation was straightforward, took a bit over 2hrs to install but it was due to the fact we were only using jack stands.

      Intuitive Install, So Firm!

      Following the instructions, a fairly easy bolt up. You really have to use some force and push the shift base up toward the floorboard to get the bolts to line up between the upper and lower portion of the support bracket. Once you get it all bolted up it looks good and sure firms up your shifts. Only slight difficulty is the upper support has a tenancy to want to slip off the shift base snout connector when you are positioning it.
