Ok, I need to run a power cable for my amp through the firewall somewhere. Is there one on the passanger side or the drivers side?

Depends on what size your wire is. Usually the easiest thing is to bore a hole in your firewall then apply liquid rubber over the sharp edges, run your cable through then redo it again. The car's sheet metal is pretty thick though.

I am at CarVista. If you want tinting done, I'll do it at my house. My number is 292-7308, and my name is Steve.

I already had a hole on my ETC on the drivers side. It was big enough to run 0 gauge through.

Was that factory or did someone else make that hole?

As far as I know factory....there was no signs of previous aftermarket.

I located a pass through with a little flappy window on the drivers side. Looks like I'll be using that one. :)

Near where the parking brake meets the body. Up just a wee bit, close to where the dash plastic cover begins. Look in the engine bay, and its a rubber plug, right to the drivers side, bottom of the master cylender.:thumbsup:
