After watching the mgw shifter install video, no wonder why the stock shifter sucks. Zip ties holding it together.... Really???

Can't see how beautiful it is when it's installed 😉 install your Barton. You will love it.

From what I've gathered, the people that have tried both say that those two aren't even close in comparison and that the race spec dominates.

Barton replaces nothing of the lower section of the stock setup. MGW has pretty much done a full documentation that that linkage is a BIG part of the MGW shifting problem. MGW is also one of the only companies I actually think is honest about this sort of stuff even though they are trying to sell a product.

Look at this troll here with his very first post, coming over from Camaro forum to F with you guys and you took the bait....and now you're choking on the hook arguing with each other.
Now they're having a good laugh over on Camaro dot giggity giggity dot com or whatever forum that OP came from linking to this thread.

Has any body considered the new Blowfish bracket? From what I have read it solves a lot of issues. Now in saying that my 2011 shifts from 1st to 4th when I am driving like an old man or really getting on it in a slight turn. I was planning on buying a the bracket from CJPony parts for 299.00. Is anyone running the Blowfish with any insight?

There was a large discussion on that bracket a while ago. I believe those who ordered it said it did help a lot although it did add a lot of noise and vibration to the car

That is the skip shift messing with you. Get a tune and it will get rid of that problem.

The new MGW shifter makes it totally obsolete.

I have the Blowfish bracket paired with a 1st generation MGW shifter. The MGW gives much more precise and somewhat shorter throws and the BF bracket eliminates the body mount and basically mimics a top loaded shifter configuration mounted entirely to the transmission. The new Race Spec MGW combines these features in one device. I got my set up before the Race Spec shifter was introduced but if I were starting from scratch I'd go with it.

The noise referred to can potentially happen when you use the BF bracket with any shifter that retains the stock shifter's lower box. Originally the "snout" on the back of the OEM shifter box was hard clamped to the BF bracket, which is in-turn hard mounted to the transmission. There's an updated clamp now that adds some isolation at that snout clamp which should reduce that NVH problem.

Since the BF bracket, when used with the 1st gen MGW shifter, retains the use of the MGW elastomeric rear mount, there's no noise problem with that combination so long as you orient things away from the vestigial body studs that held the OEM rear bracket.

I've very pleased with my set up.

Just replace the clutch and get a steel braided line,it's the clutch fingers that are causing the issue at high rpm's

The one perk of the blowfish if you already have a shifter is it also adds a driveshaft safety loop.

I have owned over 30 cars, all with manual transmissions, and all but one had issues with lockouts and miss shifts. My s2000 transmission was perfect.

Don't know for a fact but it's basically the same transmission, so I'd be surprised if it didn't fit.

It might have different mounts since the chassis changed from S197 to S550. I mean it is probably close but who knows. Even going from 1998 to 1999 with literally the exact same chassis there are different mounting points for the trans just as an example.

I have a blowfish racing bracket installed and am very happy with it.

I tried the Barton-two post shifter bracket first, but still had 1-2 grinds and 2-3 nibbles. I also had problems getting into first when coming to a complete stop sometimes.

Even going from the Barton to the Blowfish I noticed a great improvement in shifting.

I personally didn't notice any increase in NVH, but I also have the stock shifter.

I also have an aluminum driveshaft installed so the fact that this acts as a DS loop was an added bonus.

However, like WJBertrand said, if I was starting from scratch I'd probably going with the MGW Race Spec shifter.

They all do this. Its not just your car.. you should lower your rpms before shifting. Or buy a chip to lock this function out.

Well I installed my Barton shifter and two post bracket now. Its a completely different car geez. No miss shifts, and I ran it up to redline and banged some gears, not a grind or miss, I love it...All the people that are talking about NVH with this setup, well I don't know if they installed differently because I have zero noise except if I hold the shifter and exert some pressure on the stick when driving. I can rest my hand on the ball or lightly touch the stick when driving and still no noise. The gears are ridiculously close and the two post bracket completely took away miss shifts 1-2 or 2-3. I am very very happy with this set up. Im abit surprised at seeing so many people commenting that their barton is SO LOUD AND WITH ALOT OF VIBRATION..I Maybe there two post bracket is different or was installed differently. Just saying.

Amen brother. Glad you went ahead and installed it. I try to tell people I can't hear the noise either. And I almost wanted to get rid of the car after 900 miles until I installed mine. Like you said, different car. Huge difference.

Yeah, you are right Ox, its so freakin nice, can bang all day long without missing a gear and it feels soooo good lol.. Ford should have at least installed a similar 2 post bracket. To anyone out there that is still using the factory shifter and bracket, GET A BARTON SHIFTER AND TWO POST BRACKET OR THE NEW MGW. It will transform your car....

Nah, I have a jacked up left knee and I'd rather set the car up to just do 1/4 blasts anyway at this point in life and the auto is better than the stick there.

Anyway, at least its proven that the MT82 is a really really really really good transmission when the shifter is sorted.

Auto is not better or quicker scotty, just easier to drive and more consistent. Spoken from personal experiences driving my 4sp 69 big block Camaro SS drag car. That being said, I did change it over to a 2sp TCI glide, trans brake w/10inch TCI converter. I ran abit slower, but I ran the same time almost everytime, which is key to bracket racing. I admit I won more times with my glide then I did with the stick, but the stick was quicker and more fun, just not profitable,,,,in my humble opinion folks. But I still will be glad when you are no longer Stangless lol.

For 1/4 racing auto is most definitely better and quicker. That's not really debatable... for handling/highway pulls definitely stick. For street driving that is all personal preference but if you are street driving, the stock shifter in the M6 is terribad for sure. However at least its not as bad as the GT500 shifter... yikes...

Uhm its not quicker and it is debatable. It is however more consistent and easier to drive, but we can agree to disagree. Anyway, what is holding you back from buying your stang?
