2013 Boss 302 Clutch Question.

I just picked up a Boss 302 yesterday with 34K miles. Great clean car from what I can tell so far, BUT I am not sure if what I am experiencing is normal or maybe a issue.

What I am experiencing and questioning:
When I am accelerating hard and especially over 4-5K RPM's the clutch is much harder to press in and change gears. Is this normal or do I have an issue on my hands?

Thanks!

While it's impossible to tell without driving your car, these Mustangs have ridiculous clutch pedal effort levels.


Ford finally got it right with the 2015+ cars, the clutch is 1/2 as heavy. I wonder if the master and slave clutch cylinders from the 2015+ cars can be installed on the 2005-2014 cars to lower the clutch pedal effort?

It actually the more I have driven it today the more I find the issue(s). The clutch under pressure is harder to depress and actual if shifting 1-2 and 2-3 in WOT and fast the clutch gets stuck and doesn't fullly come back up. Also I get locked out of gears as well under these conditions...

Have a separate issue that I just noticed a short bit ago on the way home will post that in a separate thread I guess shortly.

Just wanted to update this thread in case somebody comes accords this when searching the issue.

I finally got my new clutch broken in (after the appropriate clutch "in and out" cycles and also miles) and got on it for the first time. Took it to 5-6K RMPS and shifted with no issue of stiff clutch or clutch sticking to the floor at high RPMS. Not sure which fixed it or if it was a combo, but has I have a new clutch paired with the "Ford Racing High Performance Clutch Fluid Line" that I bought from AM.

Part can be found here:
Ford Racing Mustang High Performance Clutch Fluid Line M-7512-A (05-14 GT) - Free Shipping

Hope this helps somebody out!

Now hoping to get my rearend issue addressed and I hope after that I will be good for a while? I hope... haha

For other info on Boss issues find them over on this thread.
