According to the 2 page memo they gave me (the link is listed in the first post in this thread) Ford state's the green clutch can last up to 100 miles, 1000 miles or more based on customers driving style. I have reached 1200 miles and mine still grinds, some have reported it improves past 20K. I do not know if I can wait that long?
