New clutch/flywheel tsb

So I was headed to lunch and my identical car was parked outside.. I was upset because I thought I was the only color combo in town... Anyways Inside was a gentleman wearing a ford service outfit , so I asked if the shelby was his he replied yes as we talked about our cars he asked me if I had my clutch replaced yet.. I told him I'm not having any issues so no I have not, he then informed me he can replace the whole kit under power train warranty !! I'm extremely happy and i now have an apt next Wednesday to hopefully get it all replaced

Know a guy from another site, 2012 GT500, just had the parts included in the TSB that was supposed to be issued in Jan. 2013 to correct the 1 - 2 shift issue. ( 10, 11, & 12 MY cars ) Well the parts Ford installed didn't cure the problem. Not sure if they will still go ahead & issue the TSB.

The title of your thread is " New clutch / flywheel TSB ", the TSB I'm refering to includes replacing the clutch & flywheel if step 1 of the TSB doesn't work. As your GT500 is a 2008 MY, the TSB isn't new.

Picked it up last night, he started and finished it in one day, he said my flywheel had gouges and the clutch was already basically shot after 15k.. The new one is soooo easy to drive now and I'm very happy, I do miss the hiss sound but, the flywheel doesn't rattle, no clutch chatter and smooth easy pedal!

Glad you're happy with the results & the work was done on Ford's dime.
Did you by any chance get the TSB # & issue date ??

How is the clutch holding up? I'm looking to get mine replaced soon. How hard was it to get ford to do the work?

They won't because it is not a recall. If you are having problems with your clutch, then I would call ford.

I've not had any trouble. It shifts hard from first to second sometimes but nothing bad. I do get a hiss when I let out on the clutch.

I went through 2 factory clutches in 7,000 miles.. Once u reach rwhp above 580 the factory clutch won't hold much longer especially in 07-09 models... I went with a McLeod and havnt had anymore issues. The McLeod is even lighter than the factory clutch.

I have good news and bad news. It looks like my clutch is finally going out. I'm tired of the awful shifts, the chattering, and the hissing. When I get up to 4000 RPM where the engine gets more torque my clutch slips and I rev rpm's. From what I understand this should be the original clutch. I have 25,000+ miles on this clutch. I would like to know what would be the best clutch for an 08 GT500. I plan on increasing the HP to 600-650, So I'd like to get a clutch that would hold its own with that type of HP. Any takes on an aftermarket clutch?
