pretty much...thats mostly whats recommended on this site. there's really not a big difference in quality from kit to kit as long as the lengths are all the same.

a grounding kit will only add like 1 whp (if any) anyway...and seeing how a dynonameters can be off by up to 3 whp that 1 whp is still questionable...it's just time after time they show increases of about 1 whp so most car experts accept that it does make some power, however small thumbsup

^^ i agree.

whp is hard to come buy...$30 for a horse is actually pretty good thumbsup (considerring most exhaust cost about $400 and give you 3-4 horses--an average of $100 a horse) thumbsup

does the grounding kit even improve your engine at all?

SUPPOSEDLY, it just improves the flow of electrcity so less power is used by ur alternator...it's still questionable whether it makes any power at all..if it weren't for dynonameters showing very small increases (around 1 whp) consistently, it wouldn't even be a debate.

a better grounding kit is always a good mod - especially if you've seen the one Toyota uses on our celi's...

yea i think it keeps the electricity stable so the lights or whatver dont dim...but the question is, are grounding kits worth it in the long run?

yea... basically just the name they are selling...

the wires are all the same... even if there is difference, it wouldnt be noticable...

and either will harm ur car if installed properly. thumbsup so basically go for the cheaper ones... these wires are not like ebay CAI or anything...

hey JAE, if you want expensive go measure the lengths of each wire and take the info to an audio store and purchase some Monster Cable to make a homemade grounding kit. now that's expensive.

grounding kits (and you will understand this very well if you know electronics and you realize how electrically depended our engines are) is they do help the car, not noticable Performance difference but it provides electrical stability which is greatly noticed in headlights, sound systems, but one thing is it will provide less resistance for the engine (if you seen the stock grounding wires celicas come stock with, its small!!) it will take away some stress off the engine but yeah of course no gains rolleyes
