Personally, I like the brake line to be split closer to the left front rotor, and then run on the crossmember over to the right. A little more braking pressure on LF that way, easier to turn. On the rear, I go to the LR, and then split, run over chassis to RR. This will give you a little more braking on the LR than the right (more weight there). We never have a problem with stopping, or turning the car. I believe using good brake fluid and splitting them this way helps.

The bump start pedal depends solely on the tranny you are using. I believe they do make a pedal for that, or you can use an actual clutch/slave setup on it if need be.

Hope this helps.
