most guys run the vacuum hose and wires through the driver side fender. Run your hose behind the brake booster and through the large hole in the driver's fender near the firewall (behind the cruise control if you have it). Undo the rear of the plastic fender liner and just above the oil coller outlet you'll find a blank plug in the firewall that leads into the passenger compartment behind the top of the fuse box.
