My MT82 whines pretty good in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th under >50% throttle. Pretty normal for these or is it just me?

Go get it checked out.

I haven't heard any noise out of mine and I'm cautious of it after I owned a GTI that had a whining transmission at part throttle. It ended up needing a full rebuild.

Figured I'd update. Suprise...dealer isn't concerned yet. It's a pretty annoying whine but the transmission at least shifts/feels great. They told me to come back after 1000 miles, so we'll see. I may not worry about it since this car is likely to make big power in the future and I'll upgrade it anyway. We'll see if I can still hear it over my full SW exhaust.

Mine has a little whine to it under light acceleration, and for the MT82 its pretty much considered normal. I just swapped to Amsoil MTF + XL-18 additive and it quieted it down a little but it is just the nature of the beast with these units. Once my cat-back goes on I'm sure I wont hear it at all.

I had no noise before about 5000 miles and a lot between 5 and 15000. Primarily 4 gear between 1400 and 2100. Had a very mechanical click from 1 to 2/noise similar to problems previous years of gt 500's and 5.0s have had... now at 30000 I have only intermittent mechanical click from 1 to 2 and that sound from 1 to 2 under partial throttle shifts.

Mine has started to get very bad, I have an appointment at ford on the 14th so I’ll keep you updated. Even with an exhaust and the radio up it’s very loud.

It's pretty normal. It quiets down as you drive more.
Just new gears wearing in.
