No hood struts? Everyone forgets these. I too did the MGW, DSS Shaft, and SS lines, I went with Goodridge. Are you going with Dot-4 ATE Super Blue? I was warned it would stain the stock plastic reservoir but I don't care.

I heard my buddy cursing a lot when installing the DSS under the car when I was putting the MGW up top. There was something about the bolts that was pissing him off that I can't recall. Don't forget to measure the shaft once the car is back on the ground, there is a warning on your instructions to do this. We measured at first when the car was still on the jacks and it was out of spec and I was saying, 'man, how could this be screwed up, I know we did this right' then we realized the car was still in the air with the rear axle hanging down. D'oh! :nogrinner

Also plan on doing the MGW same day as the shaft, as you will obviously have easier install with the shifter with the OEM shaft out of the way...

Here's a post I did on the MGW. I hear the design recently changed, but most of the info here should still be good.
