Rough shifting

The first 10 mins or so of driving getting into 2nd and 3rd are kind of tough to get into perfectly,but it seems after that it gets much better.Could it be the shifter warming up? Or what idk,but it's noticeable after a little driving it smoothes out.Is this normal or signs of trouble/bad shifter?

Was it always this difficult to shift or has it become so recently? Also, has the weather gotten cold recently because cold fluid makes shifting harder thus after 10 minutes of driving it warms up.

I love a manual but the shifting in my 2013 has always been questionable. I bought a Barton short shifter and bracket and WORLDS different. That said the short shifter isn't necessary to make the shifting smoother only the bracket and that is on AM for a reasonable price.

if it is something recent or only in cold you may not have minded it before and you can disregard all my jibberish, LOL.

It's the gearbox itself warming up. If it goes away don't worry about it. A shift bracket does wonders for this car, as mentioned.

Gearbox warming up. Same issue on my '08 GT, especially during winter.

Said it b4. There is 4 things that need to be done to the mt-82.
1. Shifter and bracket
2. White line busing
3. Braided clutch line
4. Fluid change
