Yeah you can do that. The shock sensor doesn't have a lot of range. It usually covers about half of a vehicle really well, and the other half not so well. Since the typical entry point or target area for thieves is around the drivers side window/door, shock sensors are typically placed in the front area of the vehicle. So you have to consider that when choosing a location for your sensor. You can mount it inside the car, behind the glove box, and then run your wires through the factory boot like I did with my siren and tach wire. The hood pin is right next to that boot and your sensor would be mounted away from the hot engine compartment.
