i think a while back some one said that that's a replica.

i would go with Team Celica's grounding kit. it's only $32 shipped (i think) and it wont give you more hp, but it'll make the headlights a little brighter, the stereo will sound better, and the car will idle smoother.

if you ground the right points of your cylinder head, you can actually pick ap a little torque(i mean VERY little, but it's still there)

The reason for this, is that aluminum heads don't conduct very well, and the puny little ground strap that they have for the spark plugs stock, doesn't allow them to spark anywhere near their true potential. It becomes very noticeable if you change to some better plugs when you reground it thumbsup
