I did the Motorcraft XT-M5-QS this last weekend on my MS6 (not a fun job, try and find a 24mm offset closed-end wrench and remove the intake). It wasn't that different at first, but after 600 miles, there is a REAL difference. Before it could sometimes feel like metal on metal through the shifter, and that is gone.

I got it for $19 at a local dealer.

Sweet baby jesus, if I had got it for $6.33 a quart I would have bought a thousand of them. The 3 actually came to $57 altogether.

When it's cold and windy here, I get a very slight grinding feel. Now that it's summer it goes into 2nd fairly easily (takes a bit more force than the other gears) if you do it quickly, but I notice that if you hover between the gears too much (1 going down to 2) and try to ease it in, you can feel the gears bumping and then grind if you hover there too long. This only happens when the car is moving. When the car is stopped, no grinding or bumpiness is noticed while playing with the shifter in any way. I actually had this problem a bit with the 97 V6 Camaro I had after I got them to replace my clutch. Gears would not engage easily when the car was in motion and 3rd would grind in winter and was always harder to get into. Is this resistance to go into gear when a car is in motion normal? I drove the Camaro for 5 years that way and it never seemed to hurt anything or ever get any worse.

I did it a few weeks ago. Nice improvement. It isn't a miracle cure that suddenly makes the tranny become a joy to drive, but it is better than it was. Weird thing is that after a few days I had to adjust the shifter. Once the new stuff displaced the old it started getting notchy, whereas before it was just stubborn. Adjustment cleared that up.
