They claim to have the best grounding kit, so we'll see happywink I'm gonna install it this weekend, but I've been looking at the install section & they show you how to install happies grounding kit, which has 5 cables, mine has 6. So where does the 6th go?

I just got done installing it & it was a pain in the ass, more than when I installed my Blitz Intake. It took me a little over three hours to do it. The long narrow piece of metal where the battery tie down connects to & some tools fell down by the engine bay, I think they're down by the underbody plastics. I'll jack up the car tomorrow & remove the plastics & hopefully find everything that fell down wink

This installation is not for the timid, your hands are gonna be pitch black by the time you're done, you'll have a bloody knuckle or two, and you gotta have a lot of patience. If you dont have these, you're better off having some one install everything. You don't see any of the cables sticking out, except for the one that connects to the negative battery terminal. So it's a clean installation thumbsup

I'll post on Sunday nite, after I've driven a couple days, to see if the $29 I spent were well worth it

The 6th is the "secret" grounding point. LOL Gotta buy the kit to find out. If I had of seen this yesterday, I would have told you to wear gloves. If you have a manual transmission, don't be alarmed if a bit of liquid comes out of bolt #3. I found the install to be pretty good. An extender for the rachet is a plus. I noticed a difference, everything is just smoother.

Pulls smoother, shifts smoother, great mod, best 30 bucks I've spent on my car yet!

I cut and replaced all the stock ground wire it replaced. No point being redundant, since the new lines are so much thicker.

The only stock cable that is re-used is the one that connects to the negative battery terminal. I also have one stock cable that was connected to the right side of the engine hanging loose. The stock bolt isn't long enough for the two ground cables + the stock cable. So far no CEL, but one of these day's I'm gonna go to the hardware store & buy a longer cable 'cuz this cable connects to the spark plugs & I can't pull it out 'cuz it's connected to a wire harness. So far I haven't felt any difference, but I only have about 10 mins of driving time.

While I was driving home I noticed that my rpms dropped all the way down to 500 when I came to a stop light. They used to be around 1100-1200, so the engine is starting to feel smoother. Another thing I noticed is when I used to have my radio on & I turned the rear defrost on, the lights on the center console & my headlights would get dim for a split second, now I don't get that anymore. Not feeling any performance difference, but I'm happy that the engine is running smoother.

I'm the one that is making these kits and I'm glad to hear that you like it. I should have sent you guys a link to that install when I shipped the kits but if not then I appologize. The install should really be closer to one hour rather than three but if you drop things you could be there all day.
