put it in today with the mgw great addition. I thought the shifts were exact before but now it is a whole new world. Rock solid piece and I did not notice any extra NVH only a small amount of vibration in the shift handle which I assume is due to it being one with the car now.

what is the revised bracket?

found it on their site. Looks like its only needed if the original is making noise which mine is not.

Design flaw? Nah, just a revision. You know, the same kind of revision that MGW is doing with their new race-spec version out now.

And the blowfish revision is free if you return the old mount they credit the cost of the new part. Good deal and the right thing to do IMO.

I have this bracket with my Revision 2 (not race shifter) MGW shifter and recently added the MGW stainless bushings in the shifter support arm. Apart from putting in the Magnum, this combo is the best bandaid one can get for this transmission.

I started with just the MGW, improved, but still not perfect, Then added whiteline transmission bushing insert, more improvement but still not perfect.

Added this bracket with MGW bushings and it's about as good as it can get.

I track my car and this combo not only got rid of some of the NVH now that the shifter moves with the transmission shifts under load are greatly improved. And the rest of the time shifting is like buttah!

I'll be running this until my transmission blows up and it's time for a Magnum.

A handful of people complained about too much noise from the shifter area after installation. They redesigned the bracket and it now uses an isolation mount which eliminates the possible noise issue some people experienced.

One bracket isn't better than the other, one just eliminates the chances of having a noise issue.

Highly recommend the new mount. I had the original version on my car for about a year before I bought the new one. The noise was maddening.

It isn't nearly as bad now, but still there.

I have it paired with a Tri-Ax also.

I installed the Blow Fish Racing bracket when I had a Barton/FRPP shifter and the vibration/noise was terrible. I didn't think the combination was all that great.

MGW came out with the Race Spec shifter that I bought about six months later and the change from Barton/FRPP/Blow Fish to MGW Race Spec was fantastic. Smoother shifts, totally quiet and zero vibrations.

I'd highly recommend the MGW Race Spec for the MT-82 as the first and only option.
