Ive heard good reviews on the blowfish bracket too and it does come with a driveshaft loop built in. But if cost is the concern there really isn't much of a differentlce for anyone who still has the stock shifter since it wouldn't make sense to use the blowfish without upgrading to a better shifter as well.

Most people say just go with the MGW. I can't say for sure but I would be inclined to agree with that since my experience with it is so positive. The install only took 2 hours on a lift taking my time drinking beer and bsing with my best friend for the first time in a year.
Sounds great, what about additional NVH? I bought a '14 GT last month and the wife ended up with it. She complains about the shift under load, and stiff suspension. I told her she picked a car that's meant to be stiff and she'll have to live with that aspect. But if I can improve the shift that would be great.

Friday, I bought another '14 GT for myself (since she took the 1st one). It should be here in a few days (being shipped). I anticipate if shifting just like the first one, so everything I do costs double. I have two cars to support here.

Can the shifter and the blowfish bracket both be done to the same vehicle, or would there be any point in that?
