OH---I thought the restrictor was on the Tee fitting on the trans. Is there one on each end? Or does the trans side one need to go back on?
Thanks for the heads up @Blackula @TurboGT

The one on the firewall looks like it doesn't have a spring clip on the other end--it looks like there is a push tab to release it (left side). Does that sound right?

I printed a pic from @UnfocusedST's install for a reference while I was doing the install, and his still has that restrictor.
Also, I just looked at Steeda's install instructions, and it says to route the clutch line over the shifter cable, but I think I ran mine under it--is that a big deal?
Thanks @TurboGT

The restrictor is on the other side of the line at the transmission.

Found the pics I took in my thread, I left the trans-side plastic doohickey on but saw later others removed. Firewall side had this paperclip-style retainer:

BlackeST: slow-cooked for flavor

I tucked the clutch line in front / under the trans bracket.

I'll take another look. Trans is coming out in a couple weekends.

Got it--the little F***er.

I stuck my phone back in there and just started taking pictures until I could see the clip.
Thanks for everyone's help.

I also swapped out the 8-year old Black and Grey Rally Armor URs for a fresh set of Black and Blues. Then I tossed on the metallic black mirror caps. I'm undecided on these. I thought with the black base and the smoked LED sequential turns signals that the black might kind of disappear, but I'm not sure if I like it or not; might swap back to the PBs. That was why I bought a second set and painted them rather than painting the originals.
