Blowfish Racing Original Manual Shifter Race Version Support Bracket GT 2011-2014/Boss 302 2012-2013 is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from blowfish solid mount kit high quality, nicely made, fun & easy to install, after my first test ride i'm really happy with the results, closest thing yet to the feel of the old school Borg Warner T-10 / 4 speed with muncie linkage which was fantastic, no extra noise that i can tell on my boss with the side pipes almost completely open. yes there is a small amount of vibration on the stick now but i like that, also lets you feel early warnings of tranny probs, thats just the way solid mount linkage feels & sounds especially on performance machines... want to see serious NVH ? take a drive in a lambourgini ,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blowfish & Mod Installed Blowfish to eliminate trans lockout at redline. Seems to have worked ,but, a vibration was annoying. Blowfish provided a revised mount clamp that eliminated the vibration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That's what I'm talking about I went from the Barton 2 post bracket to this, I didn't expect such a big difference. I mean... Wow! I can't think of any reason for someone not to buy this. Some say it's noisy, I haven't experienced that yet, but even with some noise, so what!! The feel and confidence this bracket gives is more than worth it. If you can't afford a magnum swap, then this is the next best thing to give your mt82 the best chance at survival

By Bill Tumas: Bill: While it may have a reputation for not being the strongest transmission around, the MT-82 six speed manual found in our gotta have it race car, so far has held up to all the abuse we’ve put it through. When Steve from Blowfish contacted us and said he had a new product that would make our MT-82 even stronger, we were all ears. Steve, tell us about this new product you made.

Steve: Well, this is our MT-82 shifter support bracket. Essentially what it does is it converts a semi-remote shifter to a solid mount shifter just like a T-56 or T-5s that you all might be used to. What that does is it’s going to eliminate all of your miss shifts. It’s going to eliminate any of the one, two nibble that you sometimes can get, and it’s going to extend the synchro life, so you’re not grinding gears all day long.

Bill: This will work with stock shifters, after market shifters, anything.

Steve: It works with every shifter on the market today.

Bill: It’s a bolt-in product, no cutting …

Steve: No cutting, no welding.

Bill: … welding, nothing crazy like that?

Steve: 100%, you can return it to stock.

Bill: This appears to be a built-in drive shaft loop?

Steve: It certainly is. Yeah.

Bill: You’re getting a support for your transmission and a loop, all built-in, on a bolted installation that’ll work on any MT-82 transmission?

Steve: Absolutely.

Bill: Okay. Let’s get it installed.

Steve: Great.

Bill: To get started, if you have an aftermarket drive shaft looped already, you’re going to want to remove it. Since the Blowfish piece has it built in, you’re not going to need it anymore. Steve, what’s the first part of the installation?

Steve: Well, the first part is to remove the shifter bracket.

Bill: Okay, and factory or aftermarket, it doesn’t matter …

Steve: It doesn’t matter.

Bill: … it’s got to come off.

Steve: All of them come off.

Bill: Let’s get that out of the way.

The bracket is held in by two nuts, one on either side. We pull it down off the studs and slide it off the back.

Okay, the bracket’s off. What’s next?

Steve: Next we’re going to loosen up these three bolts attaching the isolator to the transmission.

Bill: Okay. Don’t remove them. Right?

Steve: Don’t remove them. Just back them out to about a quarter inch gap.

Bill: Next we’re going to install the lower bracket over the loosened up bolts.

Steve: You just slide it through the keyed part of the center one and drive all three of them down.

Bill: Ease it up and tighten them back up.

Steve: Tighten them back up. Next we’re going to take the upper bracket and work it in, to have the bolting bolts holes facing rearward and rotate it around the drive shaft, behind the shifter, until it’s in place. Then slide it. Lift up the shifter, slide it forward, just like that. The next thing we’re going to do is we’re going to bring the snout bracket clamp and put the lower piece between the upper bracket and the lower part of the snout, and then bring the top piece over. Then we’re going to attach it with the two bolts from underneath.

Bill: Okay, so the same place we removed the bracket from the aftermarket or factory shifter, that bracket …

Steve: Is where it goes right back on.

Bill: … comes off the piece, and that goes on there.

Steve: Yep.

Bill: Easy enough.

Steve: Just in an upside down configuration. Now we’re going to take the lower piece and place it between, lifting up again on the shifter. Now it’s settled in. Then we’re going to take the upper piece and place it over the top and nest it. Next, take the two bolts and start threading them in.

Bill: There’s no nuts required? Actually the bracket is threaded?

Steve: It is. We’ll leave these bolts loose for the time being while we get everything set in place. Cinch them up. Next we’re going to set the bracket, the upper bracket, up with the lower. We’re going to push it up into place just enough to get a bolt in.

Bill: Once it’s all together we just tighten it down and we’re done?

Steve: That’s it.

Bill: Easy enough. Now, when you say tighten it up, you want to start with these or the bolts up top?

Steve: You want to start with the top clamp bolts.

Bill: Okay, those first.

Steve: That’ll straighten everything out.

Bill: Then I can tighten these down.

You’re going to feel the difference with the Blowfish bracket as soon as you install it. The first time you put the car in gear, it just has a different feel to it. It feels like it’s a much more solid feel than you’re used to. The remote mount always has that unique to it where there’s always a little bit of play. That play is gone. It feels just like an old school shifter where your shifter’s attached directly to the transmission.

Well, a Blowfish mount’s great for anybody with an MT-82 transmission. It’s really meant for someone who’s going to power shift it. Let’s give it a little abuse and see how it does.

I’ve got to admit, I didn’t think I’d see that big of a difference. We have a lot of different parts come in here, different brackets, mounts, all kinds of different shifters. That is huge. The difference this thing makes in your car, the transmission is tighter, it goes into gear easier, and feels better when power shifting. All around great product.Thank you for bringing it out. We appreciate it.

Steve: Thanks for having me.
