Default Help routing Vacuum line

I am currently working on installing my SPT boost gauge and the only issue I am having is routing my Vacuum line through the firewall. I was wondering if anyone had any helpful tips on how to do this because I am only able to feed it about 2-3 inches then it gets stuck.

I was able to feed it through but I could not locate it at all. It sounded like it was behind the cloth when inside the car. If anyone knows what I am saying help would greatly be appreciated. I have everything else ready to go I just need to feed this line

Glad you got it. It's funny how these 1 hour jobs turn into to half the day

Which grommet did you poke it through? I'll be doing a boost gauge install soon.

There's a plug near the center of the car, feed the line in. If you try and force it to the driver side it won't feed, but if you allow it to go where it wants it will. I did that early in the stage, but couldn't find the line. Finally I got the idea to check from the passenger side. If you go there and see reach into the small gap behind the center column of the car you should be able to grab the line. I then took a wire hangar and fed it through to the other side. It makes the job much easier. If I figured that out earlier it should have only taken an hour or so

Tape the line to a solid piece of 12g wire makes it a lot easier to feed and pull.

I think I will try the grommet in the drivers side fender well.
