Default Clutch or Transmission problem?

Could this be clutch hydraulics or a transmission damage/wear problem?

5 speed, 6 puck sprung clutch, upgraded pressure plate included with it supposedly good for around ~315ftlbs, stock flywheel, regular DOT 3/4 Valvoline synthetic brake fluid.

4 problems total.

1) press in clutch, change to gear, go back to neutral, won't go into a different gear unless i pump it 1 more time.

2) have to push all the way to the ground all the time. (stronger clutch) So naturally, the oem hydraulics have to work harder I imagine. I am pretty sure I have the actual pedal adjusted as best as I can from what I can tell.

3) shifts very slow 1-2 like as if the synchro are moving in slow motion. if i go fast (try to get into gear fast) i feel metal on metal, if i go slow, the revs drop too fast.

4) when i apply strong load and high throttle in 1st and try to do a hard 123 pull, the shifting randomly starts to feel extra extra notchy and sticky for like 5-10mins and it eventually goes away as long as i don't do a hard pull starting in 1st gear.

#4 doesn't happen as long as i don't do a pull starting in 1st. but whenever i do, the shifter becomes notchy like there's sticky sap or magnets between the notches holding it in place between each gears. Very weird and don't know if I'm describing it right.

Welp, the rain held off today and so I was able to get the work done to replace everything and guess what! Fixed problems 1 through 3!

I haven't had a chance to test for problem #4 I was having yet. Ganna try to resist until after I get the alignment this payday to do so. But I will likely be reporting back in about 1&1/2 weeks about how #4 turns out. Thanks Matt

If you still have #4 after testing, consider trying a shifter rebuild.
