Saved $6,000
If you track your car or do HPDE, this bracket is a must!
Before this bracket was introduced, my only alternative was to do a Tremec Magnum transmission swap at a cost of $6K.
As a bonus feature, I saved another $200 on a driveshaft safety loop, making the Blowfish Racing Bracket, IMO, the best bang for your buck MOD out there.
Thank you Blowfish Racing and CJ pony Parts!

Much better feel
This bracket is really stout and well manufactured, it took about 15 minutes to install as the instructions make it easy. First and second were notchy before install, after shifts like butter. On wide open throttle pulls it was common to get locked out of third, I have done a couple and so far have had no issues with lockout. There is a noticeable vibration in the shifter, and a slight rattle (401A Metal shift knob) at certain rpms, but think I can solve it by some simple adjustments to the shifter height. I am really pleased with this purchase and will recommend this to all my friends with the MT82.

Great product
Ford should have done this from the start with the MT82. Combined with the MGW it shifts great! I have it at the lower position and there is no NVH at all. I am very happy with this purchase.

Good but noisy
I have a Barton short shifter previously installed that worked well but from time to time I still had the lock outs on 2nd and 3rd. I installed the Blowfish bracket a couple of weeks ago and it was a bit tricky since the reduced space but no biggie. Now the shifts work smoothly even at high RPM, the only drawback is the increased noise and vibration – especially at 1st and 3rd. It is a bit annoying since it is not “engine noise” but the shifter vibrating against the plaque. I am thinking on applying Dynomat around it but If someone can suggest a better fix for this we will have the best solution for MT82.

GREAT Product and fixed my lock-out problems
I've tried all manners of fixes to correct my 2nd gear lockout problem and nothing worked. The Blowfish bracket did the trick! Super well engineered, good looking, easy to install, and now I can shift at speedshift in any gear at red line without that unsure feeling you get. Whereas before you would have to 'pop' the car into each gear under rpms, with the BF bracket it's smooth, consistent and sure feeling. I did have to play with the shifter height to get a vibration in the stock shifter handle to go away. I lowered mine to the lowest I could get the shifter and it's now quiet.

Just perfect.
Installed the bracket today and couldn't be happier.
No noise, no grinding gears and the installation is so easy.
A must have for all mt82 transmissions !!

Best mod to date
I beta'ed the unit and put roughly 5k miles on it and have been so impressed I have told anyone who will listen to buy this if they have the funds. There is no more guessing where the shifter will go when shifting under hard acceleration, I shift in the middle of a corner flawlessly every time, everything about the shifter has been improved. I feel like everyone should have this installed on their car, 1. it's a DS loop for added safety, 2. it will save your syncros, and C. it really allows you to enjoy driving your car no matter what the application.

I'm shifting with confidence
I have the proto type bracket in my Boss and I can say It has changed my transmission MT-82 from missing gears and that notchy feeling to a verry good shifting MT-82 Transmission. No more worries about destroying a transmission by missing gears or GRINDING. The Blowfish Bracket does everything that its was designed to do. Only wish FORD would of made it a standard feature or install on a TSB and save the Mustang owners some cash. But THANKS to Blowfish for the Excellent job at designing this bracket, I now drive my car way more often and not afraid to hammer the gears anymore!!

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.
