Sealing firewall after wiring?

I installed my sPOD this past week and am in need of something to patch the hole I put in the firewall foam. I pulled the connector through and it left a larger than I'd like hole there. What should/could I use to cover seal the hole around the wires?

I was thinking something like dynamat would work good. What do you think???

why would you want that hole sealed?
there's no water coming through. Or if there's water coming through you have bigger problems :~

No water coming through but it is a quarter sized hole and I just wanted it closed off. No good reason other than that.

there is no reason to close it off and you will never see it.

I'd bet every Jeep owner that has used that hole has never "resealed" it. Use whatever silicone/rtv you want though.
