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 a non race spec MGW shifter and want to make sure that this bracket will work with it. Looking at the pictures n your and comparing them with the ones on the blowfish racing site. It seems like there is a difference. Blowfish sells a special bracket for the MGW shifter. In the reviews there is one guy that has the MGW and he says that it fits. But the pictures don't match.... I am confuse. Thank you for your help

I have a 2014 Mustang GT and have the Spicer Dana 4" aluminum driveshaft. Will this bracket work on my car with the 4" driveshaft? The car has stock height suspension.


If I have a barton 2 post bracket installed that will no longer be used ?


  • You will be correct it would be either or they are going to utilize the same mounting locations.

If you spend enough money on trans and shifter mods it works very well. People that whine over a little noise should not own a Muscle Car. Stick with a V-6 Auto chic car.

    BLOWFISH CURES MT82 Shifting blues

    I've owned my 2013 GT for two years now and have never been happy with the way that it shifts, just driving around in the street . It is most noticeable when doing spirited driving wanting to move gear to gear's swiftly . The transmission seems to hang up between certain gears in a inconsistent manner, especially when trying to increase RPM and then change gears soon after. it seems that the torquing and the moving around of the engine tends to cause this problem. the factory transmission linkage is mounted to the body of the floor and does not move in unison's with the transmission, preventing the shifter from keeping the linkage alignment and proper sequence with the transmission linkages. From what I've heard so far there are not any shifters available to truly resolve this issue, despite efforts made by several companies in the making of aftermarket shift linkages. The MT 83 transmission that was introduced in 2011 has been Notorious for this issue. Well I can say there is now an answer, with the blowfish bracket installed this transmission shifts as it should, with each gear falling in place much more predictably. I have wanted to take the car to the track but hesitated as I was not confident that the transmission would find every gear in correct order. After hearing about the blowfish and the success, I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed after installing the blowfish the car shifts tightly with no troubles at all . This bracket set up seems to isolate the shift linkage away from the body of the car and harnesses it directly to the transmission using the hardware provided . It was a fairly easy install if you don't mind crawling under the car with it on jackstands as I did . I was not able to get a torque wrench on all of the bolts which hold the two pieces of the bracket together over the driveshaft however with a couple of box wrenches I was able to torque down the bolts to a reasonable estimated tourque. The blowfish bracket attached with no trouble to my aftermarket MGW shifter, (which I didn't even know was on my car ) and I have the entire bracket mounted in just about an hour , with only a few tools . The only downside to converting to this bracket is that you will experience more vibration sensation through the shifter specially higher rpm's in fourth gear . I do not find it to be a nuisance at all specially normal driving. I also noticed that going to reverses is also easier. My recommendation would be to start with the blowfish bracket before even bothering with aftermarket linkages just as a start , to see how the shifting improvements work before spending extra on additional parts. In my case I was pleasantly surprised to find that previous owner of the car already mounted MGW shifter on it . I fell short of five stars on my rating only because of the fact that you do experience some vibration through the handle, and the bolts that mounts the two bracket Pieces together was out of reach for a torque wrench ratchet. I would highly recommend this to anyone even if you do not raise the car no one wants to miss a shift especially with these coyote engines that are fast runnin I would highly recommend this to anyone even if you do not race the car. no one wants to miss a shift especially with these coyote engines that are fast and high revving ! after installing the shift bracket I made it to the dragstrip and did not miss any gears running a 12.7 on street tires for my first time racing the car!

    Perfect! A

    BFR shifter support bracket does exactly what it says, FIXES the design flaw of the MT 82 trans! Perfect shifts every time! The quality of this product is top notch.Don't hesitate,add this to your cart now and buy it. You will NOT regret it. I had 0 issues with noise,however you do get the "vibrations" from the trans thru the shifter. BUT its not a bad thing, its awesome! I grew up driving 60s and 70s muscle cars and it gives you that same "connected" feeling. Don't waste your money on a short throw and a bracket to fix your shifting problems. Buy this,then if you want to upgrade your shifter do it,but you'll have no need for their 2 post brackets. Now I have to mention American muscle, I can't praise this company enough. They truly know how to treat and take care of their customers!!!! THANKS AM and BFR!!

    Great Upgrade - be one with your stang

    Great upgrade and instructions for the install are thorough. I installed using jackstands from my back. The most difficult part was getting enough light where you need it and torqueing the two bolts on the clamp. I must have dropped them 30-40 times. A little difficult working around the drive shaft but not bad if you have the patience.

    The Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket was easy to install with the directions provided with the bracket assembly. It did not take long, a couple of hours later I was testing my mustang to make sure it would shift at high RPMs. It worked perfectly, did not miss a shift at all. I am very satisfied with this product and I do recommend it.

    (MT- 82 Fix) This is as good as it gets!

    This is the fix for the high rpm lockouts! It also eliminates the need to granny shift into 3rd to keep from grinding the gears or missing 3rd all together which destroys your transmission in no time! To miss a shift, you would have to try to! I am very impressed with this bracket. It performs better than I had expected. If you like driving hard, you need this bracket because it will save your transmission by drastically improving your shifting quality and accuracy even with the stock shifter!

    Solid shifts and Peace of mind

    ordered this bracket on a Monday afternoon and AM had it to me by Wednesday morning - excellent as usual. Installed on my hoist in about an hour, only changes from the manufacturers instructions is you may want to bolt the piece that the shifter slide pins go into AFTER you've put the upper piece in the tunnel and spun it around to the correct position. That's how I did it after being unable to get the upper to spin up in the tunnel, the only other recommendation is that once you've got all the bolts started in the upper to lower bracket push the shifter up as far as it will go AND THEN DROP IT BACK DOWN about a quarter inch and tighten - this will give it clearance between the shifter and the tunnel - I had it pushed up to high initially and it was buzzing something awful in the car - dropped it a quarter inch and it is perfect. this is THE fix for your 2nd gear nibble and the frustrating 2nd to 3rd jam up won't give me any gear issues. it is smooth across the gates and I can hammer it across if I want and it never misses or hangs up. the street version is really quiet, I only get a buzz if I'm downshifting at max rpms - say 4th down to 3rd at 6500 rpm it will rattle momentarily - but that's expected - everywhere else it is quiet and solid. Highly recommended.

    Just do it

    Of all the mods to my 2012 GT, this is hands down one of the best. Since I out this bracket on i couldn't miss a shift if I tried. I powershift every gear at nearly 7500 RPMs and it doesn't skip a beat, and I even have the stock shifter . Under normal driving the trans shifts likes hot knife through butter. I have the older race version which some people say can be a bit noisy, but mine isn't. Honestly, even if I did make some noise it would be a fair trade for how well it works. With this new version the noise issue is eliminated. And to top it all off I run sticky tires at the track so I have to have a driveshaft loop.. BAM... got that covered with this also. If you plan on keeping the MT82 in your car, and are going to drive it like you SHOULD BE, then this is a must. It make the trans feel like it is a solid unit.

    Helped but not the cure for the MT-82

    I saw reviews on here that people said it fixed all their shifting issues. That did not happen for me. It helped with a little of the sloppy shifting but not a overall cure. I was hoping I would not need to get a shifter this but I will. It helped with my 1st to 2nd sloppy shifting but i still feel that clunky feeling from time to time. Not a 100 fix. Listen, it helped but not the end all cure.

    Exactly what the MT-82 needed

    The Blowfish bracket is does exactly what it needs to do for the MT-82. It reduces the play in the shifter. I also coupled the Blowfish with the Barton short throw to make for smooth, quick and reliable shifts. No more lockout. It is important to note that you can do this in the driveway but a car lift makes it a lot easier. All in all it is a must have for any MT-82 owners.

    Installed the blowfish racing bracket and Steeda tri-ax shifter. No more lock out, missed shifts, or mushy feel. Feels rock solid. No extra NVH either. Do yourself a favor and install the blowfish bracket and aftermarket shifter of your choice. You'll be glad you did.

    Best shifting cure available

    Since new, the mushy shifter feel was the only drivetrain issue I could not easily solve. First I tried the shifter and transmission bushings that firmed things up. But I still had issues at high rpm's. I installed this bracket and a one piece driveshaft at the same time. I followed instructions and noticed no increased in noise or vibration. With the factory shifter everything feels direct and precise. The integrated safety loop is added icing to the cake.
