Red face Auto Tranny to manual

Good day, I have a 2014 V6 Premium, leather interior with Track Pack and was interested if anyone here has changed their automatic transmission to the 6 speed manual?

Sell yours and buy a stick if you want one that badly. Although your 6R80 auto trans is far better than the MT82 manual. Get a good tune and a converter installed and you'll do much better at the 1/4 than you would with a stick.

Auto Tranny to manual

Mine no longer wants to shift down. I read on another forum that the shifters are bad and had to get replaced.

Go to any track and look at what 9/10 of the fastest cars are running.

For a regular street car the 6R80 with a converter and properly selected shift points will push in the butthole of the same car but with MT82.

But I guess I still don't know lol.

Always a 1/4 at a time with you, mash the gas and go lol.
Run your auto on a real track (road coarse) and see how it compares to a stick, or a rolling start.
Yes the auto's have select shift now but its garbage and more of a novelty.
And yes Scotty still doesn't know.......😜

^ yea that. Autos are faster these days, but there is a certain amount of enjoyment from rowing your own gears that makes it worth it even if you give up a few tenths.

Its a pretty common thing with select shift that's not just limited to Mustangs.
My wife's 14 eco fusion runs into this every once in a while along with delayed shifts almost every shift, our two previous Mazda's along with my friends charger experience these issues.
Fun but not refined.
Its a little novelty but that's about all it is.

Hasan Alefire on here has done auto to manual swap. I wouldn't recommend it if your into drag racing (auto trans is far superior not only in shift speed but strength), but if you want more control over the car and better in the twisites then it might be worth it.

I really can't say enough how much I hate the "select shift" on the 'stang. I rented a Camaro while shopping for a replacement vehicle and really enjoyed it's responsive paddle shifters, can't say the same for the select shift. That being said you would think it wouldn't be too hard to swap out the auto for a stick given how modular these cars are....could add some more "fun" to your drive.

Never said anything about a road course... although certain autos are doing great there. Racing from a roll... keep it at the track.

To each their own. If your auto is not fun its because its slow. Some ppl prefer stick regardless and that's cool.

Auto Tranny to manual

I read somewhere that on the 13-14 Autos, dirt and carbon build up behind the select shift buttons. Carefully removing the button and cleaning the contacts behind it and on the auto shifter itself can help if you experience degraded select shift functionality over time.

The other thing to try would be leaving the battery disconnected for an hour to see if that helps after the car "re-learns".

100% agree the auto is the way to go for a regular track car. I enjoy my manual but if I where ever to get serious about track racing my mt-82 would end up on craigslist.

FWIW the worlds fastest v6 Stang uses an automatic tranny. Also I was watching Velocity and they were talking about how Ferrari (or Lambo, I forget) has came out and said that modern autos outperform manuals so there is little point to offering them.

Do you feel cool driving a stick? Hell yeah. But the truth is that they offer no performance edge in the modern era.

They do around a circle track but the way autos are getting now and paddle shifters... Maybe not.

A lot of people on the Corvette Forum feel a 'real' Vette has to have a manual transmission. They are pretty upset because the automatic Vettes are faster

It's just the way of the world, the manual transmission is inferior to the modern autos in just about everything except driver engagement and racing around a track.

I completely agree with the fun factor, though from what I have seen on here the MTs our Stangs get sound a little annoying.

The MT82 has its share of issues. Does not help that the 6R80 is REALLY good and faster while allowing you to keep a nice deep rear gear for crusing. And on the 15+ the auto sport mode rev matches and everything.

I didn't know that about the 15+, good intel scotty. I hated my auto slush box until I used the SCT. Cleaned up the occasional shift hang I was having and gave me a nice firm shift. Now I can get it to break loose from 2-3 almost everytime I go wot.

Ford made a good AT, just needed to get on the juice!

Sounds like a lot of work to convert AT to MT but obviously it's possible but is it worth the money and blood? lol
I have a MT82 and it's not perfect but it has been good to me so far. I have 9 months of daily driving experience and eventually I would like to upgrade to a short throw shifter and bushing (stock car with under 20K miles FYI).
The manual transmission has less parts than an automatic from my understanding. So less parts means less crap to go wrong, correct? I really enjoy driving a manual transmission, I can hold my gears, the car sounds better, and it's a joy to drive because in some ways I feel like I'm part of the car, unless you are in heavy traffic, than you wish you had an auto lol.

It's a really terrible idea. Like someone else said, sell the car and buy an automatic or vice versa.

Reminds me of some foreigners who lived in my sub division one time they had the place crammed full of family. One day a variance sign went up. They wanted to add on to the house and get the City to grant them a variance so they could build and expansion right up close to the neighbors property line. When everyone showed up for the meeting and objected, they whined, and I told them, when you live in a sub division with restrictions and you run out of room, YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE AND BUY A BIGGER ONE!

As Voltaire once said, common sense is not so common.
