Where to run 1/0

Hi all. I'd like to run some 1/0 gauge wire to replace the 8 gauge crap that I have right now. My current power wire is ran thru the dead pedal thing (automatic trans) and I was wondering if I could fit 1/0 or if I'd have to find another place to run. The reason being is that I'd rather not drill the firewall. My system consists of a Polk pa-600 (pushes 85rms to 4 chan) running front components and on the future maybe rear coax. And a power acoustic amp (claims 300rms bridged, its prolly 200 tho) pushing a small sub until I can afford to upgrade my sub stage. In the future I plan on upgrading to a actual 300-500w sub amp.

1:0 is overkill for my application but for $54 from Knu (cca, not ofc) it seems like a good plan to minimize voltage loss and if I choose to upgrade farther in the future ill have the headroom to do it.
