Switched Ignition Live Feed for Meth Kit

In the not so distant future, I will be installing a Snow Performance water meth injection kit.

I'm getting ahead of myself as I haven't even received the kit yet! Anyway, just planning the install in my head. The kit requires a switched live feed (20a fuse is used in the kit I believe) that needs to be live only when ignition is on or engine running?

What are you thoughts on where to find this?

Thanks in advance.

I've installed water meth kits on 2 of my other cars, and I've debated about doing it on the F10. I'll be curious to hear your impressions. Does your switched power source need to be in the trunk or up front? If I recall, I tied in the pump directly to the battery in the trunk and the switched needed to be up front. I have Aquamist systems, but I assume the power requirements would be similar to the Snow kit.

It doesn't matter whether I use the front fusebox or the one in the rear, either way I've got to run wires from front to back. The controller requires power, and the pump is powered from the controller. I will probe the fusebox in trunk first and see if theres any unused ignition live slots, if not I'll use an add a circuit adapter and tap into the 12v auxiliary or tower electronics or something like that. I haven't even got the kit yet, I'm just planning ahead at this point, but it's been ordered and is on its way!
