1. dont flash the latest 4.3 yet
2. downgrade to 4.2 and root using doomlord method or root by bin4ry method
3. once rooted, backup TA partition
4. flash latest 4.3 via sus, pcc, or ftf
5. unlock bootloader
6. flash custom kernel with recovery
7. boot to recovery, flash supersu update zip
8. reflash original 4.3 kernel
9. restore backup TA
10. enjoy 4.3, root, locked bootloader with intact drm keys!

It would be the same...

However you can also flash Doomlord's 4.3 kernel, then boot to recovery and flash the super su zip for root. The kernel from the leaked 4.3 rom seems to be the same as the kernel from the latest update.

To Flash only the kernel from the new rom,
In the flashing options, exclude all (right box) except Kernel.
