Blowfish Manual shifter support

Anyone have any info on this...

This bracket is supposed to be basically turn your remote shifter into a solid 1 like the t5 or 56.
Blowfish Racing SSB-01-000 Mustang Support GT 11-14/Boss 12-13

Specifically if it does help with the remote shifter issues with the mt82?

Sounds like a pretry solid product, I wonder if overall feel of our shifter (stock) is going to be any different than a MGW?

I believe there are several threads in the 11-14 GT section about this product. Might be able to find some reviews or comments in there.

I purchased the upgraded SR shifter bracket and bushing asap after a few frustrating missed shifts. made a world of difference and haven't had a missed shift since. can't imagine how much better this one would be. I especially like the fact it comes with a safety loop built in. I would totally buy this product if I had the spare money.

I have SR shifter and bracket. Lately my shifts have become really notchy/hard, there have been a few times when my car didn't want to go into 2nd/3rd gear (under 5-6000 rpm) while I was pushing her. I have braided clutch lines waiting to go in, hopefully it will solve my issue for now.

Still have the stock fluid?
Unfortunately it's hit or miss with the mt82.

Try all this
Fluid change
Whiteline mount
Stainless line ( that you mentioned )
Spring assist removal.
Plus mount/ shifter of your choice

I forgot to mention that i replaced the stock trans fluid with syncromesh. Think that aided the overall feel and shift performance as well

That's what I use, RP but with a Barton bracket and stock shifter, its smooth as butter except around this time of year when it starts to get cold, then becomes notchy until the trans warms up.

Unless i'm wrong, brake and clutch fluids share fluid from same reservoir/master cylinder right? I am upgrading brakes pretty soon, gotta change factory fluid with high performance dot 4.

What's spring assist? I have a SR shifter, I had to raise it with two washers else it wouldnt lock reverse gear out from a dead stop. You get what you pay I guess lol

There's a spring on the clutch pedal that makes pressing it down easier, but it makes the pedal slower to come up during fast shifts and can cause lock out. Its a very simple, like 5 minute, job and doesnt need any tools other than a flat headed screwdriver.

I did the spring assist mod on my V6 and it made a bad problem much, much worse. It was to the point, that my clutch pedal just laid on the floor and would only return about 1/3 the way up. The car was simply not driveable.

I just used a pair of needle nose vice grips and compressed the assist spring. It took like 20 seconds.

The spring is designed to make pushing the pedal down easier, meaning it will give you a stiffer pedal, but quicker return when removing it ... if you took it off and it got worse, you did something wrong.

I have a barton shifter and bracket
Dot 4 fluid
SS clutch line
It wasn't until i removed the assist spring that i was actually able to consistently hit 7500+ rpm shifts. I'd say that's hands down the best place to start, especially since its free.

If you are referring to this -


Then I did nothing wrong (kind of hard to do incorrectly) and it made my car undriveable. Then again, my car has had clutch pedal issues since the day it rolled off the assembly line.

You understand what i am saying though right? That spring is designed to pull the clutch to the floor. With it removed, it is physically impossible for the clutch to be more attracted to the floor than when it was there. You may have a throw out bearing or pressure plate issue, but the clutch assist spring was not your problem.

Let me tell you that this bracket is an incredible mod. It's easy to do and makes the shifting spectacular and smooth. Highly recommended. It does Bob up and down on bumps but not much. I made sure everything was lined up perfectly and very tight. I do not get any vibration noise from idle to 7400rpm

Maybe. I just didn't want to wait with part sitting in my trunk for who knows how long. You must use an extension for the v6. It's impossible without it. I purchased a bar of steel and the drilled, cut, and sanded it. It was exact fitment

Nah man I don't have it yet, prolly get it next year when I go turbo. I will have to put my stock shifter back, and get my car to dealership to get my MT-82 sorted out under warranty for any issues it might have. So far, Shifting is really clunky, ford mechanic told me it's quite common and that he needs to open it up. Might as well get all such kinks out just prior to putting my turbo on.

Yeah this cleans the clunk all up and so does royal purple syncromesh. It's easy to switch I ut back to a stock setup. Only a few bolts. Took 15 min to install
