I'm really not to sure any verdict yet and or is it just second or is it almost every gear could it be your clutch not releasing all the way?

Could be the shifter if it's adjustable. Mine was adjusted to the point where 4th will fully engage but second won't. Just a thought

well I found out why it was popping out of second gear.. I was babying it a little too much and not giving it enough rpm's before shifting.. but now its making a whirring noise while I drive and it gets louder the faster I drive.. the machanic said it needs to break in but I think he may be wrong? any suggestions?

Does it have an aftermarket short shifter? If so, it may have stops that need to be adjusted. The stops keep you from jamming in gear too hard and hurting the tranny. Not adjusted right and it won't be engaged properly.

And if it is a truly "new" tranny you better go easy until the clutch is broken in. Probably some time for the internals, but I'm not sure how long. At least 750 to 1000 before I'd go nuts, if it were me.

I just wish I knew for sure if its the short shifter or not and if it is where I can go to adjust it I mean I bought the car with the short shifter so I have no clue about it

I think should be good as far as babying, no clutch dropping! So, pretty sure it has aftermarket shifter? Some models had the stops and the were adjustable. This should be pretty easy to do. To see if you have the, take off the shifter knob and pull the shroud thingy that your shifter boot connect to. Before you do, checkout YouTube for mustang short throw shifter install. There some vids that will help get to where you can see if there is stops on the shifter.

The stops might be like on this Steeda Tri ax. The bolt right below the shifter arm stops it from going down to far. I'd draw an arrow to point to it but can't I'm on my phone.

Totally understand. Especially cause they prolly do it for free since they put the tranny in for you.
