Ok I think that this goes here so dont fire if it isnt.

Anyway I am having a problem with my shifter I think. The deal is that when I am speed shifting touching "redline" aka 6100 and when going into third right after I have shifted and at the final set the box makes a quick grind like sound. its only at the very end of the shift and I dont feel it grinding. It only seems to do this when in high high revs and I can shift slower and it doesnt do it so I am thinking I am shifting faster then the syncros. Please give me any imput that you can as to what the problem might be and how can I fix it. Do I need to get a better tranny fluid or what?

The third gear synchro goin out is a known issue... good luck getting it taken care of under warranty... as Ford just likes to say "its due to abusive driving."

Agreed on 3rd gear, you'll get a *crunch* even when clutch is mashed,
