While I have an AT on my Mustang, I do own cars WITHOUT SYNCROMESH and have learned to bring the engine to the speed expected upon engaging the lower gear. (Double clutching, too) (Ever do that??)
Check your tach when winding it up in third and match that speed when engaging the lower gear and all should be well assuming the car speed and engine speed are in "Synch" and not going faster down shifting to third then you would have gone accelerating while in in third.
