    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.

      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.

      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).
