This transmission had a lot of problems early on in the V8 cars. Haven't heard much about the Boss. The GT500 also uses a 6 speed manual. Could it be the same one as the V6? Hopefully Ford, at least swapped out some internal components. BMW always uses different transmissions for each car, depending on the transmissions OEM torque rating.'
Shelby has Tremec TR6060. Same as ZL1/SS, Vettes, CTS-V, and a few more.
Rest of Mustangs have Getrag MT-82

Different trannys, semi-similiar issues. I will admit that the trannys are not a strong suit in many american cars...
