my only concern would be how close everything would end up to the tranny cover. Your gas pedal location may seem a little cramped w/ the hanging assembly shifted that far to the center. I'm running a T18 in my 6...here's a few pics of pedal local
last pic gives a idea of proximity to the engine.
I'd get it all mocked up, and sit where you can operate the pedals before making things permanent. I played for quite awhile w/ gas pedal before I was comfortable
this is what I started with on my wagon
clutch, brake, gas and MC from 2wd chevy pickup
positioning of brake master and clutch master
placement of the pedals
sorry to hear about your problems....have you found something else that'll work?
You want the master cylinder centered smack dab in the middle of the heater cutout, similar to the way you've got that fancy aftermarket unit pictured. What you don't want is for you foot to get hung up between the skinny pedal and the brake at the worst time.
Use a cutoff wheel to remove the center piece so that you've got one big hole, then make a pair of 16ga plates that will sandwich the firewall, and use the booster/pedals to draw them together tight. You may still have to do some bending/cutting/welding of the brake pedal to accomodate the column, but this is a minor inconvenience in the overall scope of the project.
