Sounds like you may have damaged synchros or a problem with the shift fork, you can try changing the fluid, sometimes it helps, if you do use gm or penzoil synchromesh, its the best for these tranny's.

"Cobra tranny"?

Do you mean a 6 speed, but no, you say 5 speed, so you are talking about a T45?

If so, its probably just as 366 says, though I would lean toward a bent fork.

If its a 3650, I would lean the other way, toward damaged synchros.

If the tranny needs a rebuild, and assuming you don't do the labor yourself, it will vary a lot depending on the local shops.

Parts and labor for a rebuild would run you about $1000. If you go with an upgraded build, to handle more power, you can add shipping and core charges to that, but you can get a superior tranny for around $1600-2000.

Hold Up before you give up I'd check your cable adjustment, if your having trouble getting into gear at high rpms the clutch isn't fully disengaging, Many guys eliminate the plastic self adjuster inside the car(the metal bracket needs to be bent or dremeled out) and lift the pedal with force upwards to get a couple more clicks on the teeth,this way it stays on that specific tooth so there's no slack on the cable. If you want I can get a link to my friends how to instructions?
