Best wishes for many miles and smiles in your AW beauty!
I think the 135, and most of the ZF trannies have smaller gears/cogs, so the throws are naturally shorter. The Getrags have always have a bit of a throw, but, for me, it's a perfect length. I do, however, hope Mason Engineering makes a replacement clutch pedal like they did for the past generations:
