Default Running 1/0 in the 2015+

I was told that I was crazy for wanting to run 1/0, but my application may end up requiring it when I finalize my system. My question is has anyone done it in the 2015+ WRX and will it fit beneath the sill panels?

I ran 4 gauge in my 2012 WRX and that was a tight fit. I was just wondering if 1/0 was that much more difficult as some local installers have told me it would be?

Granted, I can usually find a way to do it. I ran 1/0 in my 1997 Civic coupe (around 2008 or so) when I upgraded to a high power class AB setup (2,000 watts RMS). I already had pulled the whole interior to shampoo and dye the carpet, so running the 1/0 cable was a cinch. Rather than running it under the sills, I ran it under the carpet through the unibody reinforcements which had holes in them. In all honestly, I could have made 4 runs to the trunk that way, lol.

I ran 1/0 welding cable in the factory loops under the carpet. Driver's side has two locations at the fender, the rubber boot and a grommet covering a hole further up. The welding cable fit that hole perfectly with some lubricant. A new rubber groomer keeps out the water. I ran through the fender, under the engine compartment side panel.

Thanks for the reply. I figured it could be done, and now I am confident that it can be done.
