hey i have a 2001 hyundai elantra, and im trying to run 1/0 guage through the firewall. i found the little black box thing in the engine compartment, but i cannot find the 3 10mm nuts. any1 got help/suggestions/pics? thanks
Is that the area behind the brake booster? I have no sound deadener there, just empty space and I was considering putting mine through there but I'm not sure what's on the other side (in the passenger compartment). Do you have a pic of where it comes out in the cabin? My mechanic today told me that it would be best to remove the inner fender and go through that area. Thanks!
stinger wire FTW
i have 4g rated @ 150a. which is a 2g power rating. They also make 2g rated at 1/0 specs.
its nice to be able to run thinner wire but know your carrying the power you need.
you definitely pay for it though, even on ebay the stinger stuff was a bit more $ for the lines with the highest power rating.
yes. rocket. thats exactly it. its easier if u have an automatic. but if u have a 5spd. u need to adjust where u drill so u dont hit the clutch pedal. other wise, for any automatics, drill right there. easy as pie!
Yes, that's about the same spot, mine is lower and more right. The fartest right and lowest it could go.
I drilled from the engine bay in-wards. Most people drill from inside out, that's why they choose that spot. It was easiest to find inside the car and easy to know it was clear.
I'm more risky to make it look neater. I'll grab more pics later.
I didn't put any grommets on mine. I have a 4 Gauge and a 8 gauge running through it. If you drill the hole so that the wire fits tightly, it will never move. The wire bouncing and moving is what causes problems, this means it won't be cutting the jacket. Over 60,000 miles with it like this and no issues.
