With the the 2.73 gears, 2nd gear at 60 is only 5,100 rpm. Bang the 2-3 shift at 6,800 rpm and get a nice chirp going into 3rd at 80 MPH.

60mph is a bit tall for second, I tend to go into 3rd around that speed. I stop downshifting into second around around 40 and even that is pushing it sometimes.

...that said, it IS a rush to break 'em loose at 60+mph with a solid revmatched downshift to 3rd. The looks I get in traffic when I do that.... LOL

I have driven standard transmission for ever, but when I first bought this car it took me a long time to figure out what it likes and does not like. It is a fussy box for sure,likes to be shifted above 3500 RPM.
Also two clicks per gear you will mot miss a shift.

A partial suggestion some people figured out on SVTP forum boards back in December, was the pressure plate on majority of the 3.7/5.0&Boss were just not up to the task of taking a full 7k pull, then shift safely into the next gear. Lots of people experienced lockout going into the gates, as well as a sticky clutch pedal that seemed to not want to direct itself back up, from as low as 4k RPM.

Two theories were behind this problem, 1) being the fluid was yanked backwards through the TOB due to centrifugal forces from the engine, which causes a reaction with the spring in the pedal to not have any forces acting against it thus a sticky pedal. Spring was put there by Ford for assistance when pushing onto the pedal, makes sense. 2) The pressure plate fingers are overextending beyond what the hydraulic TOB can handle. Which means not so strong alloys went into the pressure plate itself to handle this Coyote and Boss 302 engine. Even the 3.7 owners are having just as many issues as the 5.0 owners.

Best advice and suggestion we could sort out on the other board was... Buying a new clutch setup, which is not a bad thing. You could just change out the pressure plate for an Exedy unit which is cheap, but then you run the risk of a worn clutch disk ruining itself.

A very interesting test another member on SVTP pointed out was as follows:

Find flat ground
Pull E-brake
]Leave tranny in neutral
Push clutch pedal ABOUT HALFWAY DOWN to 3/4
slowly rev engine up while still applying pressure to clutch pedal
Rev it to 3k first
Take note of clutch pedal feel while applying the pressure
Rev it to 4k the 2nd time
Note the pedal feel once again
Now rev the engine to above 4k RPM and come back with your answers.

1 of our 5.0's at home, showed major signs of clutch pedal sinking and sticking. One is a 2011, the other is from 2012. Oddly enough the 2011 shows no signs of pedal sticking. Conducted the test on my fathers 06 Saleen, NO CLUTCH PEDAL ISSUE. Even though all 3 of those Mustangs have a hydraulic throw out bearing, the Saleen the is the only 1 with a aftermarket clutch. The saleen is used as a variable that is all.

that explains it...I did the 6 to 3rd at hwy speeds (exit ramp) and was not expecting it, it was entertaining. I did a test drive with the 2.73 (mine is 3.31) and the I remember pushing the go pedal at hwy speeds and then just looking down to see if I was on the correct pedal as nothing seemed to be happening.

Before doing anything rash like selling your car, at least install a more precise shifter like an MGW or Barton and better transmission oil. I've got the MGW and Redline MTL in mine and it works pretty well, never been locked out of any gears at least. Most of the shifts are sweet now except the 1 -> 2 shift which is still occasionally notchy as hell, no grind though.
