'12 transmission issue 1 1.69%
'11 #8 issue (NOT TUNED) 0 0%
'12 #8 issue (NOT TUNED) 0 0%

The only issue I have with the tranny is when it's cold the 1st to 2nd shift is notchy. Once it's warm it shifts fine.

Re: 2011+ 5.0, lets have a poll on issues

I have had two issue with my car.

Tranny went out with 2k on it. Lost 5th gear altogether. And was grinding in every other gear.

Then I had a misfire. They never fixed it. They changed ECU, splugs, wires, did the TSP for it. Nothing it would still come on every once in while under hard throttle.

The misfire was from the get go with about 500 miles on the car. No mods at all. Seemed fixed after ECU. Then did some mods and it was there again.

Tranny they replaced it with a new clutch with cold air, tune, and O/R x pipe on the car.

Car will be tuned with E85 as well. Then we are adding a Nitrous Outlet wet plate kit(haven't ordered yet). WIll be spraying 150-250 shot. From what we can tell and talking with few places should make close to 550whp before we spray it.

The deal with magnuson just wasn't worth it right now. Only great thing woudl have been being featured in 5.0 magazine.

Re: 2011+ 5.0, lets have a poll on issues

I have between 10, and 11,000 miles, with axleback exhaust only..Zero drivetrain issuses, at this point . It's a daily driver. I do have the option, to occasionally ride a nice motorcycle to work -but basically drive my 5.0, all the time.
