Pat drilled through the edge of the firewall wiring harness. The plastic sections. Or just pop a hole anywhere convenient on both sides.

I drilled a hole in the upper part of the floor pan and put a groumet in there. I dont see how you can get 0 gauge wire thru the firewall without drilling a hole
