Dave any sticker from an Aftermarket manufacturer
will give 20 Horses.
This is Particularly true if the product is
ineffective but well hyped!! For example I have
"HOT ROD POWER CLUB" stickers on my TIG Lid
and ever since then, WOW,
can I put down a high power bead!
BUT . . .
SVO/Motorsport stickers give 35 Horses!

I need a 3/4" hole through my firewall to accommodate additional service
lines/wires between the engine and passenger compartments. 3/4" drill
necked down to a 1/2" shaft? 3/4" metal hole saw? Any advice will be
appreciated.

TIA

Go with the metal hole saw. You can get a 3/4 drill bit that will fit a
1/2" drill ( you need the 1/2" drill with the guts to turn it) The hole
saw you can use in a standard 3/8" drill. Hole saw might be a little
cheaper even

Make sure to look for a grommet that may go over a pre-drilled factory
hole. I have about 4in. diameter worth of cabling going to the passenger
area from the hood in my '97 Expedition and Ford was nice enough to put a
large hole in the firewall for me.

George,

I'm getting rady to put new instruments in my Ranchero, and am going to make
a new loom. The BEST way to route wires through the fire-wall is to use a
"bulkhead connector" these are available in various sizes and # of wires.
They fit into standard-sized PUNCHED holes. The tool to use there is a
greenlee punch. Drill a small pilot hole then the punch parts assemble
through the hole. These are available at modest cost as a "Chassis-punch"
from electrical supply houses. Just tighten it with a wrench and a neat
hole. Then insert the connector, and plugs on the harness on both sides.
this totally eliminates both the possibility of chafed wires and fumes
getting into your passenger compartment. Looks professional, too!
