I agree with ya brofenderstrat6e said:near the top of both strut towers, intake manifold, head, and block or trans. i put one one car runs smoother and all my lights seem a little brighter. Ground kits don't do much but they are dyno proven to do a little. plus if you have a sound system using a ton of power an upgraded ground will help.
Get a Cap, and or a better alternator. You won't see much with grounds.i love honda said:Im doing this pretty soon too. My system really takes power away from my electrical system. I've been idling before and if watched my tach really close and could see it idle down just a tad when the bass would hit hard. Anyway, a few good places would be the throttle body, the tranny, the block, the head, intake mani, valve cover (maybe)...and like they said, don't go buy a ground kit. Make your own. So much cheaper. Anyway, on all those places, unbolt a nut and put the wire there and tighten the bolt back up and then find a bolt on the chasis somewhere and do the same for the other end of that same wire. If I can remember, I'll go home and take some pics for ya man.
i second this... i have a 135amp atlernator and with two caps i ran 1150watts rms w/2 subs... it would hit so hard that my bumper would vibrate cause they're fiberglass... so i took out one amp and a sub no vibrate; plus my car is soundproof...krychek57 said:Get a Cap, and or a better alternator.

kommon_sense said:I upgraded my grounds and definately noticed a difference. I didn't gain 30hp or anything, but did get slightly smoother throttle response and a better idle.
Now, with that said, don't waste money on those grounding kits. I just replaced my OEM grounds with some quality 8awg wire from radio shack. Total cost, about $14.
There are 3 total.akhlaq768 said:I can only locate 2 OEM earth leads - can you indicate on the pictures posted, where I should add the earth leads too.
