I’m trying to route a vacuum tube from the cabin to the engine bay and need a good hole or some kind of access without the need to drill. It’s very tight down in the footwell and with my luck, I haven’t found a way to the engine bay. Any help would be greatly appreaciated!

There are no spare holes, so the best and least-destructive way to handle this is by unwrapping the tape on both sides of engine wire harness boot at the firewall, run the hose, and tape it back up. You'll have to remove the battery and the battery support to access the boot in the engine bay.

There are some grommets you can share around the fuse box side adjacent to the drivers side fender. Look in the audio forum there are specifics there for running power wire for example.
