Fluid level would be my first check.
My old T56 was never much for being cold either. Shifted a little more notchy.

It is under the car. You have to pull the fill plug and check from there. It should be right at the plug.

I had a rotary Mazda with a bit of power once and the 5 spd in it used to do the exact same thing I was pulling my hair out trying to sort it out. Ended up being lazy synchro,s due to wear and tear. And selector fork throw

If that's the issue then your up for a rebuild, don't take my word for it though talk to a trans expert I just had the same experience I didn't even have to Change gears quickly and it would grind a bit, and only when cold . You could try different gear oil, which I did just eliminate all the cheap remedies first.

T56 trannys don't have gear oil they use automatic transmission fluid and you can not use anything different.

Not sure. Started with 3rd gen f -body 5 speeds and would apply to a Tremec T56 in any make car.

I got worried I might be the cause of more problems so I sent him a private message, goes to show you learn something new everyday. I've had nothing to do with modern manuals ,I'm into the old stuff .
