I finally got this to work today.

The only ROM that was close enough to stock that would allow Sunshine to S-Off successfully was the 4.4.3 GPE gpe_m8whl_4.4.3_cptb-ART-compatible found here on the forums. I imagine the 4.4.4 would work as well, but that was the one that finally worked for me.
Edit: under the Older versions

For anyone else that hasn't been attempting to S-Off their device prior to updating to Lollipop this might help.

The only two other issues I saw other people running in to were ones I had issues with as well.
1. Moving a .zip on certain ROM's might require you to delete the .zip extension then adding it again after. (MTP seems forced)
2. Certain flashing ( also require you to move the file onto an SD card, and RELOCK THE BOOTLADER.

These were the big issues I had downgrading, as well as getting Sunshine to work. I am still clueless when it comes to most of this compared to the average user, I just have a more similar experience to any other NOOBs who are trying to S-Off too late.

I wish I had documented my steps a bit better. My messups may have saved someone time in the future.
