Canada Wiring past Firewall or Bypassing it?

Hey Everyone,

Just bought a Strobe kit and I'm thinking of leaving the 4 LED strobes either in the front lights or inside the car under the dash and under the seats.

Either way I need to get to the wiring under the hood from inside. Has anyone ran a sound system or any other Kits that have drilled through the firewall or has anyone found a way to wire around it all together?

If so, please post that here for anyone else trying to do it themselves.



Thanks

there is rubber plug for stock ECU harness with additional "nipple".
look on the driver side, just follow main harness.
make a hole in the nipple or cut it off is wire is pretty thick and ran wire inside. used it for fog light harness.

got your pm and decided to answer here, maybe someone else looking for "nipple" .
look on the fire wall right behind throttle body.
there is oval rubber grommet and two rubber lines. look directly above this oval grommet and you'll see round grommet and thick harness going through the fire wall. little rubber extension bit below main harness called "nipple". use small scissors or wire cutters to remove very tip of the nipple. you also can make additional holes in the grommet membrane.
if you'll look under the dash, above pedals, you'll see where your wires will come out.
to get easier access to it you'll need to remove driver knee panel and metal reinforcement.
will try to post pics later.
