Yes, I've read the whole...damn...thread. This lock out issue summarizes what's wrong with the MT-82.LOL - no offense, but do you read threads only from the bottom up or not all the way through?
The OP was listing general issues about the poor performance of the MT82. What I offered was some solutions that would help to improve the MT82 functionality vs it’s poor performance in stock form...
I never even discussed “lock outs” nor was it the single piece of subject matter of the first post.
Yes, definitely not a safety feature. If anything, it will be the death of your car. Lock outs have caused money shifts or over-revving which could cause a kaboom!The high rpm lockout they're taking about is definitely not. It's a symptom of a garbage clutch that doesn't disengage. Even the reverse lockout solenoid is a fairly recent addition, it's nearly impossible to do by accident.
I have to agree. My 19s mt82 has been great. Much smoother than my last few manuals. Had a few 3rd gear lock outs early on but once I realized what was happening I corrected my shifting and never have the issue anymore. I'll probably throw a stiffer trans bushing in to tighten it up later this year but overall I have no complaints.I must have gotten a Monday morning MT-82, because I have zero issues with mine. Yes, it is a tad notchy when cold, but otherwise it has been a willing partner.
I also have zero issues with my MT-82 but it's not the best I've had by any means. My last car (mini cooper JCW) shifted a ton better actually and it felt like that car and I were bonded like Avatar creatures. Even the 18 SI I test drove felt better than my MT-82. Does it work and get the job done? Yes. Does it sometimes feel like a stick moving through a bag of washers? Yes. Do I still absolutely enjoy every second I'm in my car? <Insert Stone Cold Steve Austin's "OH HELL YEAH!">I had zero issues with my mt82 in stock form. I have since added an Exedy clutch, stainless hydraulic line, and MGW shifter. The feel is much improved, but honestly it was fine to begin with. Probably one of the slickest transmissions I’ve driven in a while now.
Those of you complaining about these have probably never driven much to compare them to.
MT-82 feels great to me. The clutch was always awful from day one, but after the MGW I did the clutch for the extra power from the blower and it feels fantastic now. Nice and smooth with just a hint of effort that I like, its not rubbery at all but also not notchy. I did the BG stuff long ago and to be honest I don't think it made any difference.I had a 2011 M6 GT than I sold at 190K miles - never had a problem with the transmission or clutch - sold the car and it was fine. Never changed the trans fluid and was still on the original clutch. Actually - it worked better than 6M T-56s I had in other cars (2 Vettes, 2 03 Cobras and a Firebird)
Same here. Maybe I don't drive as hard as others but it does what I tell it to do. I can take the car straight to redline, jam the next gear and go. Notchy at times when cold, but within 5 min it's fine. Is it the best I've owned, hell no. The best would've been my S2000, but I wouldn't call the MT-82 bad or horrible.I must have gotten a Monday morning MT-82, because I have zero issues with mine.

That describes my 2019 MT-82. Seems just fine!Same here. Maybe I don't drive as hard as others but it does what I tell it to do. I can take the car straight to redline, jam the next gear and go.
