Upgrading Your Mustang's Shifter While the stock shifter isn't necessarily that bad, it has some play to it, which can cause you to grind gears when shifting.

It seems to me the quality of manufacture may have declined a bit over the years??. In the T56 units, we did an electric pump setup as well but to recirculate the oil from the rear of the unit to the front under hard acceleration to prevent the input shaft and head gear on the cluster from running dry and prematurely failing. There have also been some third gear failures where the gear shears into two pieces.
