IMO, a waste of money. Just build your own ground strap. I would make one that goes from the negative on the battery to the frame. Possibly one from the negative to the tranny mount. After that its just overkill & useless.

lol, a ground kit will most likely not give you horsepower, i hope your all just kiddin wink simply put its for your cars electrical system especially with aftermarket stuff.. it helps the engine a bit, but no speed improvement

yeah - the TeamCelica grounding kit is cheap and made specifically for the Celica - best one imo...

it's not worth paying that much for this mod

I bought one from Team Innovations Grounding Kit..30shipped and take 30 minutes to an hour to install. IT DOES HELP a lots if you have aftermarket stereo, woofer, etc. My car deosn't have any of that, but I install it anyway. It make your car ride smoother when shifting gear and it idle queiter.
