Ford cheaped out on some outsourcing for components inside and now they and their customers are facing the back-blade of that decision. It sucks but, I will make this car work, one way or another.

I completely disagree.... you can buy "tremecs" of varying quality... Crappy ones like they put in the Base Camaro/Vettes, all the way up the line to a fully blueprinted viper spec...... Show me where there are any upgradeable components for a MT82(I searched for hours)..... Oh, and most of the other vehicles that utilize an MT82 are diesels(and they are made in an award winning European facility), with a redline of 4K+ rpms below that of the coyote.... It's no wonder the input shaft bearing is disintegrating prematurely.....

Some people lead the way blindly, Others follow with 20/20 vision
