Default Electroair MAP sensor

For those of you with the Electroair ignition on one side how did you penetrate the firewall with the vacuum line to the manifold pressure sensor on the cockpit side of the firewall?

My two MAP sensors are mounted on the firewall, engine side. Never had a problem.

Default Map Sensor

Electroair recommended running a separate case ground in addition to the electrical ground wire in the 3 wire MAP sensor wiring connector. Did you do this as well?

The firewall is stainless and grounded to the engine, so it is case grounded. This is recommended to shield any EMI.
