I previously owned a M6 6TH Gen Camaro SS and although i miss banging gears i bought the A10 5.0 because of its overall potential and i drag race alot and i like winning i think its hard for the manual shift fans to let go and admit stick shift cars are no longer dominant in the racing world now this is just my opinion
My MGW on the 15GT was a huge upgrade and that took it off the body and onto the trans.
The trans moves from torque when you're giving it the beans and alignment changes causing lockout and grinding. MGW solved that. NVH was not noticeable.
I had occasional high rpm (full throttle) shifting issues on my T56 (2000 Camaro Z28), even with a Hurst shifter. Not common, but occasional. But the shifter was direct and did have a little vibration at idle. Didn't bother me.

There is something very satisfying with a well performed late braking heel toe down shift. I would equate it to a very long drive in golf

I lost faith in Consumer Reports decades ago, and really don't care or trust what they write/say.

They are fine if all you want is a transportation appliance. If you care about the experience at all they will give you terrible recommendations.

oh we bloody well know racing has been dumbed down to the point of why bother with a driver. :)

The 6MT die-hards prefer the experience of dancing on the pedals and feathering the clutch to suit circumstance and also keep the right arm muscles from atrophy from disuse. A perfectly executed down-shift or clutchless up-shift gives me a chubby.

I might slightly prefer the A10 if paired with the Ecoboost simply because of the narrow powerband, limited revs and the A10 with it's plethora of gear ratios can maximize the extraction of work. That said, I absolutely enjoyed driving the Eco with 6MT and 3.55 diff ratio.

With a 6MT the overall behavior is up to the driver. With the A10 you are at the mercy of some RETARD at Mustang HQ who doesn't know how to program the controller. Give me the F150 tuning/behavior of the A10 and choosing it would be a whole lot easier.

Hey now, manual user's right arms are well exercised.

When I ordered my GT convertible I specified 3.55 gears to complement the manual because I wanted this to be my "fun" car. I don't spend much time in traffic but a lot of time on back roads & open freeways. For me the manual is more fun.

Isn't 3.55 the default gears on a GT?... Didn't see any other option besides 3.73 which is only available with Performance Pack.

They were optional in 2015.

Not trying to start more crap than this thread has already but this is another reason:

https://fordauthority.com/2022/01/2019-ford-mustang-owners-have-issues-with-the-10-speed-automatic/

I just got done renting a brand new Explorer Limited with the 10spd through Avis and I hated it for the entire week. I’ll rack it up to being a rental but I can relate to these complaints.
Since you piled on more crap here's 'counterpoint' crap to your crap: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a32828840/ford-mustang-transmission-class-action-lawsuit/

This thread should END!

Personally I have never "trusted" the automatic in my Mustangs. There are lots and lots of numbers to prove me wrong, but my personal experience still pushes me away from them. The only auto Mustang I owned was my 1994 GT, which I purchased used with approx 12,000 miles on it in November of 1996. The only power add on to the car was a 75hp shot of NOS, and transmission died after about 3000 miles (and oddly enough I wasn't even using juice when it went out, I was backing out of my garage and reverse just gave up)...I had to fight the dealer to replace that one, which they put in an entire replacement (since the car was 8 months left of warranty I had to fight them to get it)...14 months later and around 6000 miles on the replacement, I was getting on the car, and it shifted hard from 1st to 2nd, then from 2nd to 3rd, it just made a grinding noise (I was told the planetary gears caused it)...now I was out of warranty, and had to pay a shop almost $1400 to "fix" it, and that car got sold immediately after, and I have never even considered an auto since for a GT (my wife's EB Vert we almost went auto, just because it is a more relaxing Sunday drivers, but we ended up ordering it with the 6 speed since she got the HPP, and after watching a lot of the reviews of the HPP, most say "this would be better with a stick")
