I recently took some pictures of my throttle cable, and then remembered that I never posted any pictures of what I did with the coil. Not to make a long story of it, but...
What I did initially was put the coil wire through the firewall where the standard Camaro throttle cable comes through. I used this location because this area was not smoothed out and had some less-than-ideal body work on it, so it looked bad. Punching a hole there and putting a grommet cleaned it up actually.
I then mounted my coil, an MSD Blaster SS, on the bracket under the dash that the clutch/brake pedal mount to. I tried to come up with something around the radio location, but until I get my ducts and Vintage Air system roughed in, I could not visualize where everything was going to go. So this location for the coil will probably be temporary, but it does work, and only requires the standard 18" coil wire.
Then, I would up having to run a throttle cable after all, so I had to move the coil firewall pass-thru to another #[email protected]
! location. I don't know what the area is used for, but here is a picture:
The coil is just to the left of the throttle cable. Since my former coil hole was too large for the throttle cable, I had to put a washer over the hole and to try to hide the chipped paint.
Now my coil is in a bad location because of the throttle cable, so I'll eventually have to move it for good at some point.
