Sir; I just purchased a 2013 Mustang GT a few months ago, yes I have not liked the way it shifts & the lockout at 6000rpm, thinking of going by way of Blowfish bracket & the Hurst short throw shifter, is this a good combination to solve both problems.
I have a 2013 mustang gt. would like to upgrade from stock to better support bracket, I saw that you did mention that you used a MGW bracket of some kind on the Blowfish, so I'm asking then is the Blowfish bracket over MGW the way to go?
I have the Barton Shifter, Whiteline mount, and the Blowfish Bracket. Performance was greatly improved, but this combo is causing vibration and loud noise. Is there a modification or a way to reduce this noise?
Was this bracket designed to work with aftermarket 4" drive shafts? I have this bracket on my GT, it appears that the upper bolt heads of where the brackets mate up could interfere with the new drive shaft. Too close for comfort....
This part was already on my car when I purchased it. I understand I can install a short throw shifter with this, but what about another bracket? I would like to install the Barton 2 post bracket as I've heard great things about it.
is the race version with the stiffer bushings still available?
I'm on the fence when it comes to buying both the Whiteline insert and this support bracket. Considering this bracket connects the shiftier to the trans, would the WL insert even make a difference aside from adding NVH?
Blowfish Racing Manual Shifter Street Version Support Bracket V6/GT 2011-2014/Boss 302 2012-2013 Is there a bracket available for the 2015 Mustang GT's?
The Blowfish bracket, if you're not familiar with it, is a great way to address a lot of the common issues found in the 2011 through 2014 Mustangs with the MT82 transmission. The remote mount shifter found factory has a lot of issues with deflection, especially under load where the shifter and transmission aren't necessarily completely lined up. The Blowfish bracket takes the remote mount shifter and converts it to a solid mount by bolting directly to the transmission and directly to the shifter assembly itself.
The same time, it adds a driveshaft safety loop, which is NHRA legal as well. This is the difference with the new street vision versus the original version, which is known as the race version. The reason for a remote mount shifter in the first place is to limit noise and vibration found in the car. When you add the solid mount, now you're going to create a little more vibration than you had before, which in some cases could be an issue depending on what shifter you're using. The street version now isolates that by installing these two rubber bushings here. This is actually what holds the back of your shifter assembly, these bushings will isolate a lot of vibration from the bracket through your shifter.
This bracket shown here is going to work with your stock shifter or most aftermarket such as the Barton or the Hurst if you have an MGW, they include a bracket adapter, which will bolt directly to your MGW shifter.
The Blowfish street bracket addresses many of the common problems with the MT82 transmission. At the same time, also adds an NHRA legal driveshaft loop, making it an excellent choice for your 11 through 14 Mustang.
