    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 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 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.

      Great Product

      Easy install. Did what it said it would do... Highly recommend for anyone else having problems going from 2nd to 3rd gear... I matched this product up with a Barton short throw shifter for what I believe was a pairing...

      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.

      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.

      Every MT-82 Should Come With This

      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.

      Huge Difference!!

      Night and Day Difference. I installed this bracket along with the Barton Short Throw and it is amazing. What a great combination. Shift gears with almost a snap of the wrist. The pattern is so tight and solid. No more hanging up between gear shifts. Very smooth shifts. Highly recommend this combination.

      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.

      Blowfish Shifter Bracket For MT-82

      Used jack stands to work under car. Blowfish supplied clear instructions with kit. Easy to install. Used factory shifter, only noticed mild vibration at idle. Like the drive shaft loop. Will fit ford one piece driveshaft. Solid feel to shifter and gates. Not sure what the beef is with the MT-82 trans never had an issue with it. (Procharged 625 rwhp).

      Best mod for the money

      I have a roush supercharged mustang and I always had a problem with shift lock out and missed gears, even while stock. After installing this bracket haven't missed a shift yet. Installation took me about 20 minutes on a lift and was very easy. I should have installed this two years ago. I also don't feel I need an aftermarket shifter

      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 piece for the money!

      With the help of some friends we did a drive shaft swap and the mount at the same time. Mount went in fairly easy and looks great. Nice dual function piece. With a 2 piece loop it's easy to install without having to drop the drive shaft. Firmer more positive shifts are also nice.

      As long as you are ok with a little extra noise this product is amazing. The shifts are much better and the bracket even doubles as a safety loop. Install is very easy and doesn't take long.
