Any way car shifts awesome and im running it with stock shifter now, soon to be mgw, box works great. If you want to make the most of your trans use liberty gear.

Curious how much it cost to "Blueprint" the MT82 trans. I like the gear ratios and want to keep my Boss stock as possible.

Thanks

Well, here is my update. I took my car into the Ford dealer to have the sound checked out. Of course when I went for a test drive it wasn't making the noise. I did record the sound from before but they still wanted to hear in in person (fair enough) so, they kept the car overnight and heard the same rattling sound when it was cold the next day. To my surprise they said the sound was coming from the 5th cylinder and they had a programing fix for it. Since that day the weather has been warmer AND the sound is all but gone away. Seems like my transmission is completely "normal" there is a bit of a clunk going into second from time to time....but I was told that is normal.

So, if you have the MT-82 and you hear a rattle for the first couple miles when its cold have your car checked out. It could be that adjustment on the 5th cylinder. I thought for sure the sound was coming from the clutch because it would stop when I pushed the clutch in.....but I guess it will only make the sound under load.

Hope that helps...

I do have that noise on cold days, problem is this has been the mildest winter in years here and it seems to only happen when its really cold.

I'm new to modern engine management and find this interesting. Does that mean they can adjust via programming the fueling and timing on individual cylinders?

I thought it sounded a little odd too........I wish I got the exact breakdown of what they did. it was written down but I left the info at the dealer. As far as I know its a known problem. And it has to deal with the 5th cylinder and the issue is on cold starts when the car has about 3-4500 miles on it. really specific.....that they were able to fix it for the most part.

Angry 2012 Mustang GT/CS Grinding Going into 5th

Greetings,

My 2012 Mustang GT/CS just started grinding when going into 5th gear. It doesn't do it all of the time, mainly under moderate to heavy acceleration. The car has just over 7k miles on it. I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow. I hope I'm not in for a long journey.

There is a TSB regarding the rattle. I have it too...but never heard anything as specific as it being a single cylendar. The TSB changes the warm up cycle, I believe. It sounds like piston slap..and your update is motivating me to take it in now.

im not sure on the cost best is to call liberty, my trans was fried when i sent it to them so it required a good bit of work, im sure yours will be less expensive then mine, but it similar to their pricing on the tremics. Its not inexoensive but it is fair

I got an update...related or not I'm not sure. I got a rattle coming from the motor in cold weather for the first mile or two. The dealer tweaked the computer and got rid of some of the rattle but not all of it.

Well, the check engine light came on last week and I took it in. I had the cam shaft sensor fixed and I left...about 2 miles down the road I got a very loud ticking noise coming from the motor. I took it back...I was told it threw a barring and they are going to replace the whole motor; lucky me its still warranted. I actually think that part is awesome. But, I hope this ticking that people are hearing is not the first sign of a major problem like I had. At first it sounded like a sticking lifter...it turned out to be much worse. not sure if its related at all. but figured I would toss it out there.

Mine smoothed out a LOT when the dealer swapped the fluid to the new thinner gear oil. Been very happy since.
