Default Installing HID level switch - which firewall hole?

I am in the middle of installing a set of HID's and the level switch in my Canadian STi... but I am not sure which hole in the firewall I am supposed to use. It's very toight back there and can't see much... so if someone has a picture they could post to show the proper plug/hole to use that'd be great! Or a good description works too!

Thanks in advance! I tried searching... but couldn't find anything this specific.

I know there is one somewhere behind the pedals... and supposed to be another one on the passenger side... but just looking to see if anyone has any pics of them.

Passenger one sounds easier to use - but not sure if the wire harness for the HIDs will reach that way.

From the engine compartment, under the intercooler by the drivers side of the firewall, there's a flat plug maybe 30mm 1.25" in diameter. Its position is above the gas pedal. Remember, I've only installed this harness in a TS - there's no IC. Some put a boost gauge through this plug.

That's the ideal place - out of the way.

From the picture you refered to, it would be higher up and towards the centerline of the car from the plug in that picture.

I got anal (shocker) and wanted mine to be factory- so I routed mine through the fender- which of course required me to pull it off. Pretty easy tho. I made my levelling harness and routed it all in about 3 hours. Quality certainly surpasses "just get it done" in my book anyday
