p.s. haven't run out of excuses yet to just "duck up the road" in the GT
You will probably find that the third gear rattle is typical Tremec rollover noise, much worse when its cold. There is a Tremec S/Shifter available from Mal Woods for around $300 I put one in the GT and the Ford Dealer charged me $150 to fit $450 all up. The Tremec one from Mal Woods is made to go with the box and looks exactly the same as what came out, makes a huge difference changing gears, much faster and smoother and the second to third change becomes a short sharp shift instead of a 2 second fumble. Mal Woods advertises on this forum and he is a really friendly and knowledgable guy to talk to about these cars. Regardless of what option you take.
