Update on this---

I called up advanced autosports about this and they said that the manufacturer fucked up. They made me pay for shipping for the replacement line and also wanted me to pay for shipping to send the defective line back to them .

Nyways I got the ****** installed and halfassedly bled the line. Got all the big air bubbles out but there were still a bunch of pinprick bubbles in the brake juice. Unfortunately I ran out of clean and fresh brake juice and it was too damn late at night and the pedal seemed firm enough so I closed everything up and went home.

The new line is awesome! Even though I didn't bleed thoroughly the clutch engagement is actually really superior to how it was before. The clutch slip range is much greater and it engages higher up in the pedal travel range.

Despite the trouble with advanced autosports I THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOD TO ANYONE HERE WHO GIVES A **** ABOUT DRIVING.

Getting to the hard line mounting bolt that's behind the block was a huge pain so I said screw it so I just disconnected it at both ends, bent it out of the way and left the curlyq hard line in place. I'm pulling my engine and trans soon so I'll rip it off then to enable 2 ounces of lightness.
