Clutch pedal push-back at high RPM

My manual 2013 GT has a strange behavior when shifting at high RPM. I've seen a lot of posts where people have trouble with the clutch pedal not returning properly after a shift which is often solved with an aftermarket spring. My problem is almost the opposite. When doing a high-RPM shift (>5000), the clutch pedal gets really firm/hard and acts like it isn't going to go in all the way. In fact, I've noticed that if I hold the clutch in and rev the engine, the clutch pedal will actually push out against my foot. This has caused me to miss some shifts and is very annoying. I don't run it hard very often, but when I do, I want it to work. Is this normal behavior for the clutch pedal?

How many miles?

Not really normal, but not unheard of either. Im afraid you probably need a new clutch assembly to cure that issue. Just my 0.02

There all kinds of bandaids being thrown around out there. The OEM/stock clutch pressure plate is the core problem to these clutch/trans shifting issues. They do all kinds of weird stuff when spun up and put under stress, even in everyday driving they are not working properly, just less noticeable. So many folks blame the transmission when the gearbox cannot work properly if the clutch is dragging and not disengaging as it should, when it should. All of the other drive line components will suffer as a result...

2013 - Stock GT. 43K Miles. Just trying to wrap my head around what could even cause that type of behavior.

Definitely not the "normal" high RPM issue which I battled and won. I'm thinking either failing slave cyl or failing pressure plate on this one.

Either way, first thing I would try is the basics.. get good, solid hydraulic pressure first..

flush with DOT 4, replace cheapo plastic hydraulic line with stainless Steeda or McLeod stainless piece, and recheck.

....a rather junkie, third world sourced, pressure plate will do it.
