where did you put your harness?

I'm about to drill a 2 inch hole in my firewall for my harness. Before I do that I would like to know where exactly others put their harness through. I can't see anywhere on the passenger side that isn't blocked by the heater or ducts. I don't have A/C. Pics would be great.
thanks
Scott

Re: where did you put your harness?

What system and harness do you have? I drilled a 1 inch hole to run all my Holley efi wires.I had plenty of room for a grommet and future wires. I drilled it on the passenger side of the distributor just above the intake.
You may want to consider taking apart any large connectors so a larger hole wouldn't be necessary.

Re: where did you put your harness?

On my 67 without air it was run behind the motor, thru the firewall and computer was mounted under the dash. The motor hides the hole and its nice & neat. Depending on what motor mounts you have and how close the motor is to the firewall, u may not be able to fit it there. On my 69 I ran it next to the AC lines and mounted the ECM on the inner fender. That way the hole was much smaller, as there are a lot less wires that have to go thru the firewall. Are you running stock heater box? Any pics showing how what the underhood setup looks like?

Re: where did you put your harness?

I have a stock heater box. The engine is an ls. The harness is from PSI. The engine is in the stock location so there isn't a lot of room back there. The problem is the duct work for the heater. If I put it through behind the passenger side head, I'm straight into the duct work. Otherwise it will be on the transmission.

Re: where did you put your harness?

What year? If you pop the glove box liner out there's a good bit of room there where you can drill from the inside out or at least punch a small marker hole through. Lot easier to miss stuff under the dash like that. Also auto/console cars should have about a 1" hole in the tunnel under the gauge pack where you could come down the back of the engine and then back up into the car.

Its a 68. The glove box has the heater box in front of it but I'm looking into going above it. I'm going to bolt the engine and trans together to get some measurements to see if there will be clearance in the trans tunnel.

I put mine in the the trans tunnel, under where it starts to curve from the firewall. I drilled the hole from inside the car but I have Vintage Air.

I know it going to have to go thereabouts but I don't want to switch to new air system when I have a convertible. That is zeroing me in. Thanks. Anybody have pics?
