Default Pix of throttle cable routing -9A -7A injected with new elastomer nose gear leg

I'm doing some wiring routing through the tunnel and would like some pix of the throttle cable routing on the -9A or -7A with an injected engine (mine is horizontal servo) and Vans new (from 2019) elastomer nose gear leg. Both sides of the firewall but especially the aft side.
Thank you.

I'm in the process of converting my 6A to the new elastomer nose-gear / engine mount.

My FI servo is an AFP vertical unit - my throttle cable had already been routed through the oil-filter cut-out plate and I didn't change the FW penetration with this conversion.

The attach point for the throttle cable ends up being in the stock location that you would end up with by using Vans mount. I used an AFP mount since I already had it - just made a new plate for the cable end.

I can take some more pictures if you think that will help - again, mine's a 6A with an updraft servo...

Default Horizontaal

I stuck with the io320 which is horizontal. Here are my pics. I did change the location of the alt air firewall penetration; I could see how the and location would work and i wanted to keep the cables high on the cabin side. All three cables, throttle, mix, and alt air are side by side at the bottom of the "shelf" formed by the oil filter cutout piece on the firewall.
