I see from the search function that several have installed the SPA 4 litre mechanical system this summer. Must have been a sale!

I got mine two weeks ago and installed the bottle on the passenger floor. Also installed the drivers pull handle onto the passenger side of the transmission tunnel. So far so good.

Now I am running the nozzles and supply lines.
Is there an easy way through the firewall into the engine compartment? I see several holes in the passenger footwell that are plugged with rubber but none seems to be a straight shot through the firewall. How did you guys get the suppressant lines into the engine compartment? I do not have a lift so undercar access is limited.

Pictures would be a plus!

Thanks

I think the easiest way would be to go through 1 of the 2 holes for where the ac system was.

Mine (99) are located on the pass side pretty high up.

That's where I went through with my line too...passenger footwell. I added two big band clamps that penetrate the floor and wrap around the frame rail because the bottle mounting straps don't look like they'd do the job in a big hit.
