I have an MT-82 and used to get grabs/nibbles/crunches going from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd.

I tried the Barton 2 Piece shifter bracket and it helped, but was still there.

I tried the BlowfishRacing Shifter Bracket and it's 97% percent gone. (still notchy when cold till the fluid warms up)

Still using stock tranny fluid. I think I'm at around 22-26k miles now. (2014)


I have the same setup as you in my 2012 GT with 45k miles. I also continued to rake 2nd gear as I first drove off every morning. You definitely need a tranny oil change. I went with Royal Purple Syncromax. That fixed the issue. It'll take 2.7 qts per change.

I would be wary of any fluids with super slick additives. They make things buttery smooth in the interim but may be detrimental to your tranny over the long haul.

Tremec engineers have stated that a certain amount of friction is required or failure of the syncros can occur.

Dunno if this applies to the Getrag, but keep this in mind...

Actually a fluid that is too slick will cause more gear crunching from the get go.

I changed to BG SyncroShift II and cannot see any real world difference from the Ford fluids.......not gonna change it back for the sake of changing!!

BTW....I have 21K miles on mine now and it shifts GREAT......no complaints with the MGW shifter!!

Today I just installed an Energy Suspension transmission bushing and drained the ford DCT with additive XL-18. Refilled with Redline DCTF. I've tried the OEM fill of the early ford fluid when it was a new '11, then BG syncromesh2, Redline MTL, then my dealer did for me the TSB for the ford DCT with XL18. The DCT w/xl-18 was the best for me, up until today, there was always that issue with 1/2 shift and a nibble when cold 2/3 with every fluid I tried. BUT, With the poly ES bushing and Redline DCTF, I am pleased to report my shifting issues are much improved, maybe next to perfect. Before the car was even warmed up the 1/2 change felt great on the very first shift out of my driveway. 2/3 feels perfect as well. I only had time to run the thing around the block, 4 miles, BUT, it shifts Great.! This is with a Barton 2 Post bracket and a Hurst Comp Plus... 36k miles 2011 Brembo... A big plus to this new DCTF is Getrag MT-82 spec'd Ford M2C-936-A approval.
