Keyed Ignition Spot

Where is a really good spot that I can tap into the keyed ignition as in I get power when the key is on? The only reason I am asking is because it needs to be a kinda big wire for me to tap into. Nothing small. Even better if the wire is under the hood. Thanks guys and galls.

If you are trying to wire up something with a large load then use a relay. Use the key on power to trigger the relay and just run a wire to the battery for constant power.
