There are certainly pros and cons to going with a thinner kerf blade, as mentioned above. Whether you go to a thinner blade, or not, the lower TPI count would definitely help, since you’re ripping the wood when resawing, as Rich also pointed out. At a minimum, I’d go with a lower tooth count per inch on the blade, probably somewhere in the 20s. This should be especially noticeable on the speed at which the blade will cut, since you’re likely resawing thicker/taller pieces and trying to cut through more wood at once than if you were simply ripping something thinner like 4/4 stock.
