I'm about to put a car computer into my 2000 outback and after a quick look last night, i can't see any places i can run a ~8-10 gauge wire through the firewall. I would really like to avoid drilling a hole, as this is something i've never done. Anyone have any experience in this and can give me some sort idea of somewhere i can squeeze it through?
Thanks much in advance.
Just run it through any gromit that goes through the firewall. They may look sealed, but they arent. look at the accelerator cable gromit especially, thats where i ran my alwarm wires.

If so, run it through the hole where the clutch cable would go. Get down under the dash with a flashlight and look above and to the left of the brake pedal, you should see a rubber grommet plugging a hole.

I stick an awl thru in the opposite direction, then use the wire to push the awl back out, result - a completely sealed hole.

to keep it semi sealed, i cut a slit in one of the rubber things, ran the wires, and then just threw some silicon in the hole to close the gap...
+1.. that's how I ran my wires for magic switch and light switches
