UPR 2011 – 2012 Ford Mustang 6-speed shifter

Aftermarket Ford Mustang shifters have been one of the first modifications every enthusiast goes after within the first 5 or so tweaks to their cars.  Why?  Because a short-throw shifter is one of the quickest bang-for-the-buck ways to get a good handle on the Mustang, reducing the shifting motion by up to 20%, making for a quicker snap to the next gear, ultimately becoming more efficient & speedy while rowing down the track or the road course.  UPR Products has recently released their very own CNC Billet Aluminum shifter for the 2011 Mustang & 2012 Mustang GT and V6 trims equipped with the 6-speed transmission.  What’s more, we aren’t seeing a dramatic inflationary trend here; the price is right and about what we’ve paid for several short-throw shifter kits in the past 15 years of modifying our very own project cars.

TSB for 2011 and 2012 Ford Mustangs with cold shifting issues

Owners of late model Ford Mustangs equipped with the Tremec 3650 transmission were/are no strangers to the effort-laden issues as is found in cool or cold weather.  Now, owners of the 2011 Mustang and the 2012 Mustang equipped with the MT82 6-speed manual transmission are experiencing similar symptoms.  Don’t fret, though–Ford has already addressed the issue and released an official Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) to provide a solution.  When an owner of a Mustang equipped with the MT82 6-speed experiences laborious shifting during warm-up, Ford’s recommendation is to replace the Motorcraft full synthetic manual transmission fluid (factory-filled) in the car with Motorcraft Dual Clutch transmission fluid; one with such a viscosity suitable for all temperatures and conditions.
