Shifter bracket for Barton

Have a 2011 gt. Picked up a used Barton shifter. Thinking about getting the two post Barton bracket. The blowfish is more $$ but I know people love it. I don't track the car at all, just wanted more precise shifting. Not sure the blowfish is worth the extra $$ for what I want. Looking for feedback.
Thanks
PK

Well since you don't track the car then unless money grows out of the apple tree you have in your backyard then I'd say no.

I have the two post Barton shifter and it works fine.

Two post is a good choice in my opinion. I added and it made shifting better

If you can wait, Blowfish hands down. Watch the ads over on svtperformance, can often find a used street version from someone parting out for $200 or less.

My suggestion if you can is take that Barton shifter back or sell it and buy the MGW shifter. Just installed one on my 13 GT and that thing is rock solid!! I absolutely love it. Would definitely buy it again

What's the knock on the Barton? Are they just not as sturdy? I actually picked it up used from the board at a decent price. I figured it would be an improvement over stock.

I understand the noise is more pronounced from the two post. Is it really obnoxious or not that noticeable? I suppose I have the radio cranked most of the time anyway.

Honestly man the noise thing. I like the sound. But that's me. People hate any noise that is added so to be honest here. Buy it, try it and if the noise is to much just sell it. No one can describe the sound with words you must hear it for yourself

It's not that Barton isn't a good product.. Just there is better stuff out there. Barton is an 100% improvement nonetheless

Very happy with Blowfish Street Version

I just installed the Blowfish street version on my 2013 Boss, and can't believe the difference. The 1-2 nibble is gone as well as the vague feeling of finding the gates. I also have no plans of racing my car, and want to keep it as original as possible. With the Blowfish the stock shifter actually feels very good. The Blowfish solidly attaches the shifter to the transmission at the front and rear and doesn't allow the box and linkages to twist as when attached to the body at the rear as the stock bracket and many other aftermarket brackets do that attach the same way. If I was going to run hard, I would definitely go MGW, as I have one in my C6 Corvette and am still in wonder as to how well it shifts every time I drive it. I was concerned that I would get rattles through the Blowfish, but have experienced none all the way up to redline. Just a very pleasant little feeling of what's going on with the engine and drivetrain, rather than complete isolation. I agree that a used one would be the way to go, but even at $250. I don't consider the Blowfish overpriced due to it's outstanding engineering. I hope this is helpful.

I installed a Barton with the bracket on my 2013 Boss and have had no noise issues whatsoever. In fact I haven't missed a shift since the installation.

Whichever you get, absolutely go for it if you've already got the shifter. I've got the single piece Barton so I can't say much about the two post, but once you take off the stock bracket and compare it to the aftermarket, you realize how much of a joke it is.

Mine did increase the noise of the transmission in the cabin slightly, but I dig it. I didn't buy a mustang to not hear the car in action, so the more noise the merrier for me. That being said, my stock shifter just sounds and feels more solid locking in gear.

Whichever one you go with I'm sure you will be pleased!

The other perk to the Blowfish bracket is that it's also a driveshaft safety loop.
