I honestly don't recall, but I believe when I installed my valves, I re-used one of the holes that was already in the firewall.
I may have drilled one hole for a large self tapping bolt.
I do remember that I used rubber washers behind the valve so it was as cushioned as possible.

Holy geez Bob for a guy who says hes old you sure have 20/20 visión I couldn't see that I left the zip ties attatched on the picture i sent. I had to pop the hood to the car to see it and I'm 35. Lol think I need glasses now.
