stiff shifting after 3200rpms?

i've noticed this problem w/ my pony since i got it.

when revving my engine past 3200rpms, like from a light to pass someone etc, i notice that the shifter becomes very hard to move into other gears. has anyone else experienced this or know why it does this?

usually. if i stay in my usual shift bracket of 2500-3000 for daily driving its fine. i can hear the exhaust note die too after the 3000ish marker...i can tell i lose power at that point. (pre-supercharging)

What exhaust do you have? Gt takeoff's tend to lose sound over 3000 rpm's

you should not loose any power at 3k rpms on a modular they dont even peak tq till 4k.... If it was a shifter issue i would try to adjust my clutch you may not be getting enough engagment for the higher rpm shifts, where lower rpms its not a big deal, just take up the slack in the petal to get you more cable to pull on when you push the petal in, that may solve nothing but its a quick check of course.

clutch cable / adjustment checking is the first check on the tranny problem road
