Default 1996 LT4 Stick Firmness

So I'm looking at buying a 1996 LT4 right now. 100k miles, seems to run OK, no weird noises, no smoke, but the undercarriage is a little beat up, with some gashes in the fiberglass underbody, and the interior is showing a little wear.

My question: I took it for a test drive, and it was a little harder than I expected to shift gears, more force required than I'm used to with the T5 in my Camaro, or any other manual I've driven. Is this normal for a ZF6?

Any other suggestions of stuff to watch out for would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. I am not familiar with the ZF6 transmission but when I switched my Muncie 4-speed to short-throw, the amount of force to shift gears increased perceptibly.
