Now Floyd is this a tranny and engine swap, meaning was the tremec in the car before you did the swap or you also put this tremec in?

You do not have enough clutch release, you stated you can shift it fine with engine off, so the clutch is not releasing enough. Now why is this?

If this is a different trans and engine, there may be different lenth clutch cables.

If this is the same trans and clutch setup, this car should have a self adjusting clutch. So why doesn't it just fix itself? Stay with me Floyd.

It would be possible, in fact plausible, to suspect that during the course of the engine swap, the cable got some slack in it.

This would cause it to go towards the self adjusting mechanism, possibly flipping the ratching device so that the pivot cannot interlock with the ratchet gear.

If this were to happen you could not get enough clutch release.

Now all you have to do is get upside down, under the dash, look for the ratching device and flip it so it can perform it's function. Good luck. I hope this fix it for you.
