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 2017 Mustangs, including the V6, EcoBoost and GT models with an MT-82 manual transmission and the factory shifter. Does not fit Shelby GT350.

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?

ARF

  • 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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
