  1. MT82 vs newer MT82-D4

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Firstly, has anyone had a lot of experience dealing with the first generations of the MT82 since they released in 2011? I am curious if mine being a 2012 model would be a first generation MT82 with all of its issues and quirks, or a second generation? I was just reading up on this transmisison...
  2. How to: Change Manual Transmission Fluid in a S550

    Mustang S550 General Discussion
    Whats up ya'll! I have to say there wasnt much info on how to do this, on the S550's, so I hope this helps everyone looking to change their tranny fluid on their own. With that said this was incredibly easy and I would not worry about doing it yourself. Tools needed: Rachet 5/16 Allen Wrench...
  3. Opened up my MT82 this weekend.

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    I was one of the ones defending the MT82 in my Mustang. Mine shifted great. Then after 70k miles, I lost third gear. It just disappeared. Not wanting to pay 2500+ for a new transmission that could have it's own issues, I decided to tear it apart and find what was wrong. It was a PITA. Needed a...
  4. MT-82 Nightmare. Leaking AGAIN.

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Hey guys, A little over a month ago my 5th gear synchro went out and the dealer spent 12 days repairing it. 2 weeks later my mt-82 is leaking and this leak was discovered when I was getting my barton shifter installed but it only made it to the lift and was never installed as the shop...
  5. 2014 GT syncro 5th gear took a shiz

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    So last night my 2014 GT w/373 decided it didn't want to let me have my 5th gear. I've heard the horror stories in the past but I didn't stop me from buying a 13' GT and (2) 14' GT's . This is really the only GT that I've had a problem with and I'm quite disappointed with the quality of the...

  8. Horrible clunking sound between shifts

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Anyone else have this problem? This car started this weird kind of faint clunk between 1st and 2nd gear after 500 miles. I took it to the dealer, said it was the drive system just unloading and it was normal. Today me and my wife were out and it just seems to be getting louder and louder and now...
  9. Well Bummer, MT-82 Whining

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Transmission started the infamous supercharger whine yesterday, not too loud, but I've noticed some progression just this morning. I've got an appointment to get it checked out next Monday. Really too bad, I hate to say it, and I'm not interested in a dust up after all of the fairly childish...
  10. Will 2013 GT and Boss get the MT82?

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Have we heard about any changes/revisions to the MT82 for 2013? I'd consider trading my job-2 2011 GT for a 2013 if the kinks I have will be worked out. I was ok for the most part all summer but now that it's getting cold again, the gremlins are back along with a whine in 4th all of a sudden. I...
  11. 2011 5.0 MT82 is now whining in 1st-4th

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    I had posted several months ago about my car "gear blocking" me. But now the MT82 has decided it wants to whine like a supercharger in gears 1, 2, 3, and 4. It does not whine, at least not that I can hear in 5th and 6th. Open to suggestions, including fluid swaps, but I don't want to put a...
  12. 2011+ Mustang Supercharged V6 or 5.0 GT

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    * 2011+ Mustang Supercharged V6 or 5.0 GT As you can probably tell from my user id, I love the 5.0 GT. I like the power and style of the GT500 even more actually, but the 5.0 is a more balance car. Never really considered the V6 until now. With a supercharger, the V6 puts down more...
  13. MT82 vs Tremec transmission...thoughts?

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Hello all! This is my first thread so please be kind as I am generally interested in this. With all the issues I've read about on this forum about the new transmissions on the 2011/12 GT/V6 (the MT82) (grinding, difficulty geting into reverse, rough shifting) I'm curious as to why the Shelby has...
  14. Did they fix the clutch issues yet?

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    My Dealer just got in a black late production premium with Mt82! it was made 12-1 so its fresh. Is there any indication they put a less fubar clutch in them job 2?
  15. Job1 cars OK?

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    I searched all inventory within 50 miles for a MT82/3.73 401A pack and found three in Daytona. The thing is. the newest one seems to be made 6/18 and the other two made in May. Am I making too big a deal about the possible ticking, clutch or other issues?
