Cable Routing for AFR guage.

Here is a simple question. I am installing my AEM AFR guage. I welded the bung on my SVT header today. What is the easiest routing for the cable to the guage? I dont see any access holes from the engine compartment to inside the car. Is every body drilling holes in the fire wall? Or am I missing the entrance..And if so where is the best spot. Thanks Guy`s.

Drill it and run it through a rubber grommet/plug.

Any particular spot? Or does it matter?

I think he's asking if anyone here has found a good/safe spot to drill for this. And if so....where? I'm sure a pic/diagram would help him/her out.

Underneath the clutch pedal there is a grommet. Pull it out and you can run your cable through there.

Hey, Thanks. I already drilled a hole , right above where the accelerator pedal cable comes through the fire wall. Worked out just fine...Wish I knew about the plug under the clutch pedal though.. You live and learn!!
