I wouldn't bother. I had a 180bhp pinto years ago ran it with a cable, never had any problems.

If you don't mind the extra outlay, and esp if using uprated/heavier clutches then without a doubt go hydraulic, it's just so much more controllable than cable, will make the pedal much much lighter and smoother, buy the parts seperate though, can do it easily under £100.
