my girlfriend has a 04 mustang gt with a complete mach 1 swap (engine&trans). i had the trans rebuilt due to 3rd gear syncro going out. since the first time i grove the car i noticed the clutch was way to hard to push down, it doesnt seem to slip though. its just a king cobra clutch so it has stock clutch springs. i am not familar with cable clutches, so i am curious what to look for as i put it back together, im installing a ram clutch with the rebuilt trans. any ideas are welcome.

I've only done a clutch in my skittle and older civic, so correct me if I'm wrong but I make sure everything is lined up. How new is the king cobra? and is it an easy street-able clutch or for bigger torque than stock? make sure everything is tightened to spec, use the alignment tool and someone else will chime in about the cable part I'm sure. If nothing else, take it to a shop that you trust.

I recently installed a ram hdx clutch on my 2004 mach 1 and the pedal was very stiff for a little over a week, and its my daily driver. Also the clutch engagement point was extremely low so it made smooth shifting impossible, but after a 300-500 mile break in there's a noticible improvement. I've now had the clutch for 3 months and I like it. Its a sturdy clutch so far.
That clutch is difficult to shift with at first, but as the others have said make sure everything is aligned correctly...our clutches are a pita for someone who is used to hydro clutches...the king cobra and RAM lines are more or less on/off when you are driving not really much slip in them.
