    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 2019 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 along with a MGW short throw shifter?

        Will this bracket work on a GT Convertible? I know there is extra bracing underneath, not too far from the driveshaft/transmission union. Will that bracing be in the way of this part?

        • This will work with all 15-19 GT, EcoBoost and V6 Mustang models that are equipped with the manual transmission.

        I know that this Bracket is made to use with the OEM shifter but I wanted to know if you have information about using this product with Steeda Tri-Ax Race Shifter as it used the same OEM style bushing bracket it should be able to work with it as they use the same holding part if shifter ...

        Will this work with the Ford Pickup Short Throw Shifter M-7210-M8?

        • This bracket would only be designed to work with the factory shifter.

        If I've maxed out third gear and am shifting to fourth gear, but miss and hit second gear instead, is this going to allow that? If so, what prevents the engine or drivetrain from getting damaged?

        • The Blowfish Manual Transmission Shifter Support Bracket will stiffen shifter mounting, allowing for more accurate shifts. This will not be able to prevent missed shifts, as this is just a support brace and has no mechanical effect on the shifter mechanism, but will reduce the likelihood of them occurring. At this time there is nothing but a quick reaction on the driver's part that can prevent damage in a situation where a missed shift occurs.

            Must get mod

            This is a great shifter mod. Easy to install improve overall shifting capability. Smooth transition to all gears up and down. Changing through the gears as the speed vary on the autobahn without any issues at all. No lockout.

            This shifter support bracket helps so much. Shift are stuff and no more miss shifts. Install took maybe an hour. Pretty easy to be honest. Would recommend for anyone wanting more out of the mt82

            Shifts like hot butter

            I went ahead and changed my flywheel, clutch and got a blowfish mount. Love driving it again. Shifts so smooth!. Had it all done at the same time. Has made a huge difference in how it shifts, no lock out anymore.

            Did what it was supposed to do.

            Shifting is more exciting now. Precise shifts and firm. And also eliminated when you went to put it in gear at a stop or rolling and you got something like a synchro was bad. Everything more inline and the way it’s supposed to be. Can’t believe Ford puts that cheap shifter bracket in the car. I guess they want it to break so they make money on transmissions.

            A must have for your Mustang.

            It is an easy install with a hoist and the recommended tools. It did exactly as advertised. Shifting has tightened up, more feel in the stick and no shifter lock at higher rpm's. I would recommend this to anyone with the MT82 Transmission.

            Blowfish Mount

            Extremely solid and well built mount. However, that a Barton Hybrid short throw shift provides a much better overall alternative.

            What to look for

            Make sure you understand the fitment of your blowfish bracket. I did not have a parts list with photos or measurements, so I didn’t know my bracket had the wrong part until after I spent some hours getting past my driveshaft to measure the diameter. American Muscle was quick to correct the fulfillment error, and once I get to testing the correct bracket I’ll update this.

            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.

            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.

            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.
