Hi!
You're offline on msn so I will answer you here...

For your 12v, you have a fuse box on drive side, I take my power there.

For the firewall, Saab firewall is tight like a virg..... But juste behind you clutch pedal, at about 12 inch from the floor at the left you have a big wiring who pass throw the firewall at this place. It's really tight but use a ''support a linge en métal'' and use it to pass the air line throw the wall. I take 30 min to do that...


But if you want, you can wait me when I will deliver you the ''wilder mods''.

connect the line to the fuel pressure regulator line on right hand side of the fuel rail. standing in front of the car facing to the rear, remove the engine cover and you will see the throttle body, on the right hand side of the TB...you will see a short line about 5-7 inches total...connect to this line...you will get both vac and boost readings....

hope this helps

Not to offend(those in canada), but this is the only reason I'd want to live in Canada. Get some help from Wilder in person!
