I got used to the clunking, and I am sure you will too as the combination of drive by wire/ AWD and performance driveline are all working towards a clunking car.
lol. Have had BA to FG turbos . ALL had clunky and/or diff whine. Lost count of how many diffs Power Ford at Castle Hill replaced under warranty.

Re: Australian SRT issues

Yep, I had two Turbo Territories with the ZF 6spd. Both had varying degrees of "clunk" in the downshift. Best way I found to avoid it was change gears myself

Re: Australian SRT issues

Had two BA's a BF and a FG all turbos and only ever drove then in sequential mode 100% of the time. Loved how thay started in 2 gear also in sequential. Best boxes I have ever driven, absolutely loved them. Much better than these so called brilliant gear boxes.
Am I the only person in the world that hates stupid steering wheel paddle shifters. I wish this car could change gears via the stick.

Re: Australian SRT issues

I had clunk in downshift from 6 to 5th. Dealer diagnosed it as a loose mount on the rear diff. Ordered new mount to be fixed next week.

Lol, I like 'em. But the stick option would be nice too.

I agree with you re- Fords, brilliant box, especially in my FG Turbo (ZF 6 speed Seq.) always in the right gear, also did not labour in the higher gears as i have noticed in the jeep. Was a good box for mods,could handle plenty of power unlike the original 4 speed auto which needed building when around the 300 RWKW mark. Unfortunately Ford could never get their act together with the diffs and not to mention their crappy brakes on the non FPVs. First thing that i did when i bought the FG was throw the OEM Rotors and pads in the bin and get decent stoppers fitted. The brake shudder was atrocious on the standard set up. I forget i have the paddles, never use them. Anyway this is a jeep forum so i should go back to my other XR6 turbo forum if i want to rattle on about fords.
