We still haven't been able to confirm if 13s are running 12B37.

Your argument about the different part numbers invalidates all of your claims. The engineers are way above your knowledge. Deal with it.

Not sure where else to go with this besides many claims of noting how '13s "feel" smoother. But I've also driven plenty of normal '12s.

So far, the '13s have no indication that they'll have DCT issues.
my DCT is perfect in all ways that i can see, that said, i think that the DCT as ford makes it, is unproven, was rushed to marked, and so no matter the build month/year (mine's may '11) it's all a crap shoot whether or not one's DCT is good or bad.
