Where the engine harness goes into the car on passenger side.. its *NOT* easy but I have fished several vacuum lines through there before. I poked a small hole in teh rubber boot with a coat hanger and fished it out from inside. Tape your line to the hanger and carefully pull it through. Its a PITFA though.

Holy big downpipe batman.
I run my wires through a grommet on the firewall by the clutch resevoir but only because my MS is on the driverside.

WHere the throttle cable goes through you can stick plenty of wires through, or on the passenger side on the firewall there are a few grommets that will allow passage through.

I run through the old cruise hole and once that is full out comes the drill and another hole goes in for increased lightness and more wire claerance that is some pretty sweet **** man.
