Cable was supplied with kit but I can measure it in the next day or 2. The 2 holes on the end of the bracket with the little radius cutout mount to the 2 existing studs while the 2 other holes mate to the pedal. The large radius cut faces the wrong column. I thought I had a picture of this but I guess it didn't take. I'll get one soon when I permanently mount the pedal. Painting tomorrow so everything will come together very quickly now. If anyone has any questions or requests just let me know and I'll do what I can

Cable is about 60 inches long.

Clutch master cylinder mostly installed. Clutch pedal bracket needs modified to fit the standard thread post on the MC. Looks like the vendor scratched the sticker off the box because it was covered with painters tape. Hopefully these pics are enough for someone looking to buy one on their own. Also, here is another picture of the gas pedal bracket which is also now installed

UPDATE: I believe it was @spitsnaugle used a Tilton master cylinder with a custom bowl mount. I recommend this approach as the master cylinder interferes with the engine. They may not occupy the same space but it certainly makes installing the motor difficult.

Tucked my harness into the transmission tunnel and installed stage 2 single disc clutch from Monster. Starter looks like it will mate up just fine. If I did my math right I have about .155 clearance on the slave. I'm gonna add the .055 spacer from Tick performance. I installed the oil pan also but didn't get pics. I'll try to get them tomorrow

UPDATE: Don't tuck the harness too far. I ended up pulling the plug back out and I've had to unplug it several times now. Making the plug hard to access might be pretty but it turns trouble shooting into a cluster fuck

Tapped a new barb fitting into my intake manifold since the old one occupied the same space as my heater lines. I teed it off for the vacuum line to the Nemesis unit. I'll try to beautify this coupling somehow later.

Clutch slave installed with .055 shim, remote bleed, and a quick disconnect. Had to get an -AN adapter from Monster Clutch.

Drilled for my transmission tunnel bracing. Drilled all my holes too low the first time so now I have a bunch of holes in my transmission tunnel. Not sure how I'm gonna plug them yet. The transmission tunnel hangs below the underbelly of the car by about an inch. If you are going to use similar bracing to me, put the plate where you want it inside, and drill from the inside. At least for the first hole. I didn't want to pull out my entire interior to drill so I did it from below without checking inside before drilling everything. Lesson learned.

The plates were scrap pieces I had at work, drilled on my drill press. Nothing fancy. Probably 1/8"thick

Ls3 drive by cable throttle body (only one sold by Element). Had to use an adapter to make it fit. Concerned about hood clearance with the adapter...

UPDATE: adapter had to be modified for height and milled at an angle to tip the throttle body for hood clearance. Throttle body had to have the idle control valve milled off and filled for hood clearance.

Learned today that the Nemesis unit can control your reverse lockout. Had I known this I wouldn't have spent the $100 on the Jegs lockout unit. Now you guys know
