I have this exact same problem with my 2005 V6, I had the car back to the dealer twice (they installed the damper to no avail) then I complained to Ford's corporate e-mail.
This is Ford's reply to me, they are saying that this
and the rattly front end are normal for the car. I too
suspect the transmission or driveshaft. I think they
need to fire some engineers.

Oh! No. Tomorrow, if the dealer tells me it is normal, I have no choice but get rid of the car right away. I get my title ready to trade it in tomorrow for a Toyota and never by any Ford car.

You are doing the right thing by getting rid of the Mustang. There's no excuse for it to have vibrations.

I told Ford in my e-mail that I was going to
trade mine in for a Volkswagen. I had a Passat before this
car that cost maybe $1500 than the Mustang and was built like a steel vault, no rattles, vibrations etc... and
it never went back to the dealer at all.

I just come back from the dealer. They relocated the damper. It is better, but the problem is still there. I will go Toyota dealer to trade it in for a Camry Solara on this weekend.

Good luck with the new car, I don't blame you
at all for trading the Mustang, for what cars cost now you should be totally happy with how they perform.
If I wasn't so upside-down on my loan I'd be next
in line to trade mine in.

I revved my GT manual close to or at the red line and suddenly lost power. Is there a rev limiter or some other protection to keep from revving the engine past 6000 RPM?

Mine too. 2006 Vista Blue with parchment interior convertible - it has been a great car so far.

Latest update on the GT Dead Battery problem.
My car is back at the dealer for some kind of smart module replacement. The dealer recommends turning the radio off before turning the car off. Apparently there is a power drain with shaker radios when the car is off. Ford is becoming more aware of the problem and is zeroing in on the GT with Shaker radio combo. Anyone with this combo should pay attention, it's not just an isolated case anymore. I will keep everyone posted on the latest fix but I suspect that there is more to this than just a module replacement!
