    • Integrated NHRA Legal Driveshaft Safety Loop - Additional Safety
    • Transmission Mount Design
    • Made from 1/4" Thick Steel Plate

    Smoother More Accurate Shifts. If the mushy feel of the stock shifter is dampening your driving enjoyment you need to install a Blowfish Racing Shifter Support Bracket. The semi-remote design of the factory shifter allows for deflection during spirited driving and power shifting, which can cause high RPM lockout and even missed shifts. However, upgrading to a Blowfish Racing Shifter Support Bracket you will dramatically improve the shifting accuracy of your Mustang and as a bonus prolong the life of your transmissions synchros.

    Transmission Mount Design. Connected to a body mount the S550 Mustangs factory shifter is know to flex and twist under load. To combat this issue Blowfish Racing designed their Shifter Support Bracket to attach directly to the transmission eliminating the body mount. This design keeps the transmission and shifter perfectly in sync allowing for firm, accurate shifts every time.

    Integrated NHRA Legal Driveshaft Safety Loop. Blowfish Racing engineered their MT-82 Shifter Support Bracket with an integrated Driveshaft Safety Loop that is NHRA approved for track use. The NHRA requires the use of a driveshaft safety loop on vehicles running 13.99 on slicks and 11.49 on street tires in the quarter mile. The integrated Driveshaft Safety Loop will safely contain your driveshaft in the event of a U-joint or driveshaft failure.

    Durable Steel Construction. Manufactured from 1/4" steel plate, this Shifter Bracket features a welded and gusseted lower bracket for superior strength. Blowfish Racing then completes the Bracket in a durable blue powder coat finish for long-lasting corrosion resistance.

    Bolt-On Installation. Designed to be an easy bolt-on, Blowfish Racing's Shifter Support Bracket installs with basic hand tools in about an hour. All necessary hardware is included for installation.

    Application. The Blowfish Racing Shifter Support Bracket is designed to fit 2015 to 2018 Mustangs, including the V6, EcoBoost and GT models with an MT-82 manual transmission and the factory shifter. Does not fit Shelby GT350.

    Will this work with the steeda shifter mount bushing? I’d like to utilize that one instead of the one that comes with this kit seeing as how this the steeda bracket is one solid piece.


    • The Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket is not compatible with the Steeda Shifter Mount Bushing.

    Hello. Will this be redundant if I have the Barton Hybrid 3 shifter? If not, then what will this offer in addition to the Barton shifter?


    • This Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket is Intended for MT-82 Transmissions with the Factory Shifter Only so it will not work with the Barton shifter.

    The primary reason I am considering this product is to eliminate the 1-2 and 2-3 shift notchy feeling when the transmission is cold.....does this product eliminate that feeling?


    • Hello! Although this Shifter Support Bracket will definitely eliminate a lot of "notchy"-ness from shifting, that notchy feeling in a transmission when it is cold will most likely still be there until the trans fluid warms up a little bit.

    Will this work with a hurst competition plus shifter it uses the stock shifter housing so this should still bolt up right?

    It says to be used with stock shifter. What about the handle for reduced throw and not the full shifter set up? Such Product# 390299


    • You may have some issues trying to bolt the support bracket with the short throw handle. It may not be a perfect fit.

      I really like my Blowfish Shifter Support Bracket. It works great. This is my second support bracket, my first was for my 2011 GT 500, and the installation was much easier for the MT-82 transmission. Shifting is firm and precise and there is absolutely no vibration or noise. Great product.

      I love it

      It makes shifting gears way more enjoyable now.The shifts are super firm and strong. Definitely something you should have if you plan on keeping the stock shifter.

      From so so to so long.

      Wasn't a fan of the shifter set up even a little bit, started with the Whitline mount insert and a Hurst short shifter, helped but not what was needed. The Blowfish unit is exactly what was needed, superior construction easy install and great results. eliminating the rear body mount studs makes all the difference.

      Shifter Support Bracket WORKS as described

      When you finally figure out the instructions [ each year is different ], it goes on without problems. Most of all, no more 2nd to 5th missed shifts. Doesn't matter how hard you push, or how fast, it works. It's better than White Line, Barton or all the rest.

      Great bracket, bad communication and hardware.

      Now finally installed, it does exactly what it was designed to do. If you have a modified GT this install is far from simple or time consuming. In the install videos for the 2015-17 GT they only mention a stock shifting assembly. How do we install easily with long tube headers? 4 inch collectors? 3 inch pipes? Aftermarket driveline? And be prepared to go to the local hardware store and purchase longer "quarter inch" shift bracket screws. And YES it works even better with my boomba short throw shifter and quiter than a stock shifter. So after dropping my exhaust and driveline and a trip to the hardware store I'm back to running 10's at the track. Again GREAT PRODUCT, bad install communication.

      Works as described

      This made the stock shifter much more positive. I didn't notice any increase in NHV. I later added BG Synchro Shift II and a modified Steeda transmission bushing (removed the center section), and this MT-82 is as good as its going to get.

      Huge improvement over stock!

      Install was difficult on ramps because of the limited space but doable if you take your time. Took about an hour and a half to install by myself. Shifting is night and day difference, very accurate. No more sloppy mystery shifts! No additional noise, just a little vibration on the shifter.

      Works great

      Easy install if you take the exhaust out of the way. Does what it should, now I feel secure in knowing the trans will last longer and shift better with this installed. I installed it on a new mustang with only 200 miles on the clock before any damage to the syncros could occur. It should be like this from the factory.

      Really firms up the shifts

      This installs fairly easily and provides both a drive shaft loop and does a good job of firming up the shifter for a much more reasonable cost then some of the other options out there.

      Great upgrade

      I used to have the Steeda shifter base bushing on my 2016 GT, but one of the threaded studs broke off and the base started making a rattling sound when driving. So I switched to this part that does not utilize the factory shifter base mount. As this would be considered a minor upgrade plus it adds a driveshaft safety loop. Shifts are precise. A small amount of shaking in the shifter when you rev it high, but nothing too unbearable. Install was a tad challenging. Since I have big hands, it was difficult to reach up around the exhaust and driveshaft to install everything. And I have the h pipe so the big resonator was not in my way.

      Old mustang feel

      I bought this 3 months ago. Man was I in for a surprise. You feel an overall strength on the transmission. Some people don't like the vibration it delivers to the shifter but hey you bought a mustang come on. You become use to it. Would I recommend of course the built quality is phenomenal. You won't regret it
