    Need help, when I first drive the car it shifts fine but after I drive for 30-45 minutes the shifting gets harder and eventually it won't go into gear at all, even starts engaging with clutch to the floor.

    Check the cable. Are you running headers?

    I would think about wrapping the cable in some insulation. I had a similar issue when I ran Bassani mids. I used some heat wrap from Summit and it helped quite a bit.

    Hmm I've never had a problem and I have ARH headers. Maybe the ceramic coating I had done has helped.

    Probably. I usually had issues when stuck in traffic for a while. It would get hard to get into first gear from a stop. Once I was moving it was fine.

    I think you need a new clutch. The more you drive it the warmer it gets the less grab it's able to provide.

    Just the new cable that I don't like, it sticks right off the floor for some reason, makes for very hard take offs from red lights. I have been adjusting it every now and then, doesn't seem to help. I'm considering putting the old cable back on since I really don't think it's a cable issue. Maybe I just haven't got it adjusted right, or maybe I need to get the 16 year old clutch out?!

    Don't have a slipping issue, it just seems like the clutch is not engaging enough to let me get it into gear, and then it starts engaging the flywheel with the pedel all the way to the floor. Maybe I don't have it adjusted enough or maybe the 16 year old clutch just needs to be replaced.
