        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 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?

        • 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.

        Would the Steeda (or any other aftermarket) shifter bushing work with this bracket or does the bracket use its own bushing that cannot be replaced?

        • Yes, this part is compatible with the Steeda shifter bushing and will work perfectly together.

        • 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.

            Solid Shifts!

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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!

            Huge improvement

            This bracket made a gigantic improvement in my shifting. I didn't realize how bad the stock shift linkage was until I installed this part. Shifts are super smooth, especially 1-2 and 2-3. I can feel a little vibration through my Roush shifter knob but it's not bad. Install is easy but the clearances are pretty tight. Well worth two hours of my time!

            Great improvement

            With this and the Whiteline trans bushing, the shifter feels much more solid. I have the stock shifter which I'm sure is the cause of the continued notchiness. However, with this product the shift pattern feels more solid. Zero wobble like the stock set up had. I haven't been locked out of gear since. Now, because of the notchy stock shifter I did "miss" 3rd by not fully putting it into gear, but that was my fault for not slamming it home.

            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.

            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.
