Blowfish Racing Manual Shifter Street Version Support Bracket V6/GT 2011-2014/Boss 302 2012-2013 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mustang GT 2013 shifting more solid When I first got the car I was suspicious of the tranny. The infamous MT82. Well... on stock tuning and power it wasn't horrible, so I added a Whiteline Trans bushing to it. Which helped. Then after a tune and some more air and exhaust, shifting at RPM load wasn't happening consistently (over 6000). I think this is better. The car feels different. More solid. When installed don't freak because your shifter in the car is making a little rattle, or shake... remember, the tranny is snugged down now and the vibrations have to go somewhere. I actually like the feel of the shifter moving a bit... feels more like a race car! Get it. It is a great upgrade to the car. Cost me $100 to have a guy put on here in Lakeland, FL (Detroit Speed Shop). An hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shifting Improvement by a Factor of 10 This is the best upgrade you can do to a 2011-2014 with MT82 manual transmission. The improvement in shifts is remarkable. No more notchy shifts into 2nd gear for me. The expected shifter vibration because of the direct connection to the transmission is minimal and practically unnoticeable. It has increased the enjoyment of driving my Mustang. The quality of the part is excellent. Precision fabricated parts with an excellent coating. The solid snout bushing is a much needed improvement over the spongy rubber stock bushing. It's a shame that it is under the car where no one will see it. The instructions were well written and easy to follow Using a hoist, the installation time was less than 20 minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Still rattles... Bought and installed (with the vibration dampener I ordered separately). I have adjust the shifter position three times since install and it still rattles. Not bad for street driving but wait until you have to go more than two hours at 75MPH. I will be uninstalling this and installing the MGW Flat Stick Adjustable Short Shifter. It did shift better than then the Barton two piece which mounted to the tunnel though...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bracket!!!!! This bracket was one of my best buys. You really feel the difference and power shift now with confidence. The MT-82 need much help. This bracket is what it needs. I basically gave away my Barton 2 post bracket. The NVH isn't that bad. And I think it is the SR short throw shifter making the noise. The Blowfish Bracket is simply amazing.
Date published: 2015-05-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent at stiffening the HIGH RPM shifts! This bracket attaches the shifter back to the tranny. And fixes the flex that occurs at high RPM in the MT-82. Does it add NVH, you bet! and thank you. Noise? not so much... Hardness, yes: and that is exactly what you need to beat on this tranny... Vibration? oh yeah, baby. this thing puts the shifter back to connected with the tranny and allows you to feel what's happening. You only have to feel it when you shift, though! I have had the MGW shifter for 2 years. This was much cheaper than attempting to upgrade to the race spec...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blowfish trans bracket I just had this installed and it works well. I can shift confidently and quick. There is more noticeable noise but nothing that is very annoying. You do have to compromise a bit to get that great shifting. I also had the Whiteline bushing installed too. No regrets, my Boss is faster now.
Date published: 2015-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Easy to put in and really fixed the problem with the stock shifter, my 2012 Roush stage 3 with the phase 3 kit was bad going from 2nd to 3rd under power, I would recommend to anyone with a newer Stang, and the fact that it's a driveshaft loop is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product easy to install,really stiffens up shifter.no more worries about missing shifts,makes shifter tight and crisp.also has the safety loop for drive shaft

Product Questions

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.

Asked by: R Boydee
That is a good combination, but I would suggest this shifter, http://www.cjponyparts.com/barton-short-throw-shifter-v6-gt-boss-2011-2013/p/MS41/

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?

Asked by: R Boydee
mgw costs nearly twice as much and takes at least 3 times as long to install. the blowfish bracket solves the inherent problem and allows the stock shifter to function properly...and you get the driveshaft safety loop for free! what's not to like?

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?

Asked by: Aylool
There are a few places noise can be reduced or eliminated. First, make sure the shifter isn't contacting the body. Next, make sure the upper bracket isn't contacting the bottom of the shifter box. Lastly, make sure the shifter snout clamp isn't pressing up against the sides of the isolation grommets. Keeping a gap of around 1/8" between the clamp and grommets usually takes care of the issue.

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....

Asked by: nmm_2011gtcs
while it is close with 4" shafts, there should be no contact. there is very little articulation of the shaft up by the transmission and since the brackets attach to the transmission, any drivetrain rollover will keep the driveshaft and bracket moving together.

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.

Asked by: TheBorkinator
There is no compatibility between the Barton 2 Post and the Blowfish Shifter Support Kit, but there would be no performance gain in adding it anyhow.
Answered by: Steve@Blowfish

is the race version with the stiffer bushings still available?

Asked by: JVasser1
the race version has been discontinued. it did not significantly outperform the street version, but tended to produce more noise, so there was no sense in keeping it.
Answered by: Steve@Blowfish

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?

Asked by: BlackPony
the Whiteline insert becomes more of a feel preference. it offers no shifting benefit. with a reduced isolator deflection, it will feel tighter, but give more feedback.

Blowfish Racing Manual Shifter Street Version Support Bracket V6/GT 2011-2014/Boss 302 2012-2013 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: We’re here with the new street version of a popular Blowfish racing bracket fitting all 2011 through 2014 manual transmission Mustangs.

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.
