My intention to run wires over AC fan flow-in was collapsed, it is impossible, fan covers whole flow hole...

So, if somebody have expirence or know exactly where wires can be placed - it will be very useful..
So I guess my point was that if you use multi strand automation cable in, you run 1 thicker wire and have all the strands you need contained in one jacket but after reading the above post, you may be going at this all wrong.
I don't think you need to run all of those wirings into your engine bay, which was my original thought... why do you need 10-12 wires from your engine bay through the firewall? Are you trying to get the +12VDC and ground wires in?
You can tap from the fuse box which is behind the panel in your glove box
