Holly shit. WOW! I was thinking the same thing.jakerooni said:If this guy can't figure out how to run a power wire through the firewall I wouldn't want him touching my stuff.
If there's no hole you drill one.
:-? Never heard of it being done that way before.rude_ideas said:1st I have to agree with everyone else. If this guy doesn't know how to install a power line then I would call that a red flag to get him the hell away from your car.
Personally I dont like tapping other grommets to run it. Just me don't think it looks good and I get picky.
There are 2 ways I would run it.
1. through the wheel well into the side ground effects and pop into the trunk right behind the seat (everything under the splashguards and such) this is the way mine was run in my old z. it wasnt neccessary for that car but I got in the habit because 0 guage wire leaves a nasty bulge under carpet.
2. Drill you own hols preferably low by the kick panel so its a straight shot into the side conduit that way it wont interfer with pedal operation etc. Step drill bits work great for this.
Most important make sure to use a grommet anywhere it goes through metal!!!!! And make sure it is fused within 6 inches of the battery.
Sweet, learn something new every day as they say. imp:jakerooni said:It's done that way with thicker wire. 0AWG is to bulky like he said to fit nicely under carpet. the ground effect provide a nice hollow tube to slide the wire through. I'd say anything 8AWG or smaller you just drill through the firewall and hide under the carpet..
