I have a question-

I have a 95 gt 5.0 with a vortech SC system. I have noticed when driving specifically say 4th gear 2.5k rpms and i punch it without touching clutch car seems to rev (like it is burning the tires) and accelerate pretty good but not like it should and then seem to catch and rpm's come back down. is there some sort of adjustment, or is the clutch going out?

Sounds like your clutch is on the way out in 4th and 5th is when the cars under the most load time to get yourself a ACT clutch

Thats a judgement call on your behalf to make. Does it feel rough, have gouges in it, or any discoloring? ? If so, resurface it. How do the teeth on the starter ring look? Just something else to take into consideration. Since its a job you dont want to do twice, most people just have it resurfaced for piece of mind.

I just did my clutch and the flywheel looked ok on it but then it was not slipping to begin with. I was recommended to go with a stage 3 clutch for my vortech. If it was slipping I would probably replace it if I could afford to.
