Have you flushed your transmission and place new fluid in there? Usually, when you get a used engine/transmission, it's better if you place all new fluid in there, you don't know the condition of it.

Go to your local GM Dealer and pick up 2 quarts of GM Synchromesh Friction Modified. Run it for 500 miles and check if it's still hard to shift.

What are the condition of your shifter bushings?

10w30 can work, but if the tranny's been dry for a while, then it's good to use GMSMFM or at least Honda MTF.

try bleeding it too... its easy and it may be keeping your clutch from fully disengaging

id just try bleeding out the clutch like 10 more times over and over, if it dosent change anything its probably your clutch, and would it happen to be a exedy by chance?... cause we just put one of them in my friends gsr and it sounds like the same problem its hard to get into gear especially first when you want to go lol
