How do you guys route the rather bulky wires from the Wideband O2 sensor into the car?  

 

My sensor is located in the downpipe but I'm scratching my head wondering how I'm going to route the wires.  I suppose I could pop it through the rubber shifter boot thing but I'd rather find a better approach if one exists...

 

Thanks.

Don't have car any longer. Seems as though I ran the bundle into cowl and then through existing firewall hole which had rubber.

As Bench said, there are several existing holes in the firewall, some used and some probably with s blank rubber plug depending on how the car was equipped. We always just use one of those.

I like go through the air conditioning evaporator water drain hole, located in the passenger footwell on the trans tunnel. With a rubber grommet.

I ran mine through an existing firewall grommet on my old car. I'll take a video when I rerun in my new car.
