Why in the world are you going to use a TKO? the factory six speed is perfectly sufficient for the application...most of the issues people experience are tied to the factory remote-shifter setup, and there are multiple ways to solve that(Mine now feels like a T5 with a steeda Tri-Ax with my mods) a TKO would just run up the cost for little reason.
I heard there were also issues associated with that stock nylon clutch line, a steel braided replacement should fix that issue. I have that hurst short throw and ill have to use a custom line so I wont have those issues 😁

I'm worried about my wiring as well, ill call up joe and find out how he went about his setup whether he just tucked it all or trimmed down the stock setup and what pcms he has. Dude is putting down 550hp @ the wheels on a stock block lol

Considering that with our swaps the stock clutch line isn't even possible to use I doubt that will be an issue...generally in swaps when using a hydraulic clutch I will use custom bent brake line, then swap to braided stainless for the section that needs to flex and connect to the slave...not sure I have ever seen anyone swap and attempt to use a nylon line. You actually only need about a foot of braided line for the flex(guess its actually technically braided SS covering a nylon inner anyway) but its generally less of a hassle to get about 3 feet so you dont have to run 2 sections of hard line(and if you get 5-6 foot you dont even have to use a hard line at all)
