(i.e. correct shift drum positioning)



From the TSB that you posted:

THIS VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH AN ADAPTIVE TRANSMISSION SHIFT STRATEGY WHICH ALLOWS THE VEHICLE'S COMPUTER TO LEARN THE TRANSMISSION'S UNIQUE PARAMETERS AND IMPROVE SHIFT QUALITY.

As you can see, the TCM "learns" and adjusts for mechanical tolerances of the clutch and transmission assemblies.
Whatever it is supposed to learn at 2300 miles mine has still not learned. Apparently from the size of this thread many others have not as well.
Ford knows this or they would not keep releasing programing updates to try and FIX it.
