To be clear for everyone, it does appear that is mainly an issue with the OEM stamped housing and deflection/expansion at high temp and over 7,000 RPM. Before Boss2620 made the call to Exedy, I was certain that the problem was between the Housing and Diaphragm and not the disc. Either the fulcrum point/ring on the plate moved, and/or the fingers/diaphragm deformed under those conditions. Unfortunately, that was all just theoretical.Anywho, i feel like we should all know this by now 7+ years later.
To me, the issue and the solutions are 100% clear now.He was familiar with the issue and thought the cause was deflection of the pressure plate housing at high rpm.
All modern Coyote variants are, as far as I know. I'm talking about the pins between the flywheel and the pressure plate housing. GT and Boss are different.Are the both 8 bolt?
Welcome to TMO, Dennis...and thanks for posting.Boss2620,
I too think you will be extremely happy with the Exedy set-up as you describe. My install is also comprised of the Exedy Racing Stage 1 Organic Clutch kit (07807csc) w/the Exedy Aluminum Flywheel (EF502A). The MGW Short Throw Shifter, Shelby ISO Clutch Resevoir (384320), and Whiteline Transmission Mount Bushing Insert (KDT928) and Exedy combination completely eliminated high RPM/lateral torque lock outs I had also experienced with my 2012 Boss. My 302 is a daily driver that is driven to/from 3-4 HPDE events a year in SoCal. Since I have no engine modifications, the Racing Stage 1 variant also recommended to me by Exedy serves my purposes well.
This particular set-up also exhibits impeccable road manners and is quite a comfortable vehicle for my wife to drive on local grocery runs at low speed/low RPM with the occasional "oops, I think I started (from a red light) in 2nd gear" excursions.
My bad. I forgot about this issue as I rarely experienced it. But I don´t have a Boss either. Listen to Swine.Recommend against staying with the stock clutch. Its the cause of the majority of shift lockout issues and synchro damage.
I do agree on the MGW being somewhat overrated, not to say it doesnt perform well. It just didnt make my shifting experience go from "terrible" to "amazing" like lore may lead you to believe. The stock shifter has never really given me problems, but my stock Boss clutch has 100%My bad. I forgot about this issue as I rarely experienced it. But I don´t have a Boss either. Listen to Swine.
On the other hand, the MGW did not change anything for me. For me the car shifts the same, just has more NVH. This is completely subjective, but in my experience the MGW is a bit overrated. Again, not a Boss and I shift at 6900.
