If there arent any wires that can hold the extra amperage, then ANY switched ignition wire would do, and we can add a relay.

is under the dash
You will see a connector whose harness goes to the ignition switch.
Probe the wires in this connector - you will find a switched ignition hot wire
capable of handing the current you require.
Adding an inline fuse is no doubt in your plans
as this wire will be protected by a relatively high amperage
Hope this hel.ps

Well, that is the source of ALL ignition-switched power.
Your just saying use the actual ignition switch (where you plug the key in)?
You didn't mention if this device was going to be wired into the passenger compartment or the engine compartment, and if you want it switched on ACC and IGN or just IGN.

And it doesnt have to be working on Accessory...just whenever the car is "on"
I figure I can get it working...I just wanted to find out if there was an "extra" wire lying around or if tapping into the ignition is the easiest/simplest way.
