The problem is that the people asking don't know what they don't know.
Everybody tries to help but just throwing out random guesses without all the data just confuses the issue even more.
In this case what clutch he has can make a huge difference in what the issue could be. Like you said the ACT one has a huge history of issues here.

Thank you for all the suggestions. I don't know what clutch was installed by the previous owner. I'm going to spend some time seeing if it is the slave or master cylinder before I drop out the trans. If I end up needing a new clutch which one should I get. The tune I have on it currently has me at around 300hp to the wheels.

Another thing to consider, if the previous owner put a heavy aftermarket clutch in it and left the stock clutch fork, the clutch fork could have bent. They are notoriously flimsy on this car. You may also be able to pull the rubber inspection cover off the top of the engine and look down at the clutch. If the pressure plate is colored, it is not stock. If it is unfinished it could still be aftermarket though.

Inspection cover can be seen in this short video.

If you have a yellow pressure plate, it is an ACT clutch, and they are garbage.

I had lockout issues with mine. When the car is cold, it will get into gear fine up until it warms up.

Made the car so unenjoyable to drive.

I've heard so many issues with the ACT but I have to admit mine has been fine so far. I'm sure I'll reply to this post at some point in the future to point out it no longer disengages lol

Mine gets finicky on going into gear when hot. Won’t make the mistake of buying an ACT again! Took forever to break in and be smooth, now after 10k miles starting this BS.

I knew I shouldn't have posted anything lol

This weekend at Sebring the car stopped wanting to shift into gears when it got hot, especially 4th so might be a trans issue as well but all gears were a problem when it got hot. Eventually that was after 2 laps..... so yeah looks like I'll be ripping that crap out. ACT has always been great in my other cars so that sucks.
