    Just an FYI in the event folks are in need of the docs and didn’t see this in the other thread I responded to....
    ——


    Seems like the MT82 was manufactured with junk parts... saving that extra dollar in awarding the winning bid to a supplier with inferior parts quality and durability just isn’t paying off right about now, eh?

    If an MT82 Owner doesn’t suffer from the stack-up tolerance issue, then there’s the possibility of breaking the 1-2 shift forks, if you make it past breaking the 1-2 shift forks, then chances are the 3-4 shift forks will fail... hell, anyone willing to bet the next TSB will be for the 5-6 shift forks!?

    See Offical Ford TSB docs - and don’t let any Dealership Service Center tell you guys anything else, such as not being covered under warranty...

    Thank you for posting this! Glad to know it wasn’t my shifting that the 1-2 lock out at high rpm wasn’t my fault lol

    Is this only if you broke them or these are the new and improved replacements?

    What are the problems w/ a 2017 GT tranny? Someone told me the MT82 is only rated for 400ish HP. Any truth?
    I've only driven my '17 2k miles and only a few really fast hard shifts 1-2 & 2-3. I've missed 3rd a couple times while hard accel and seems like I didn't push it hard enough into 3rd so I just bailed and let off the gas.

    The 2019 service manual rates the MT-82 at 480 N*M (354 lb*ft). This is less than the output of a 5.0 (420 lb*ft).

    Speaking of the 2019 service manual. I just got mine and it shows the 2019 MT82 using DCT fluid?!?!?! It shows this in two different sections. Is this correct?

    Fill the transmission.
    Refer to: Specifications (308-03 Manual Transmission - 6-Speed Manual Transmission - MT82) .
    Use the General Equipment: Fluid Suction Gun
    Material : Motorcraft® Dual Clutch Transmission Fluid / XT-11-QDC (WSS-M2C200-D2)

    Yep, did more research. Apparently I really didn't keep up on this. When I had my 2014 Track Pack car it was 75w90 recommended I'm pretty sure. Thought it was the same for the Boss but I do kind of remember running into sites like Royal Purple starting to show they didn't have an equivalent fluid. Oh well, for warranty sake I'll use what's recommended or go BG fluids.
