I'm just wondering what the advantage of a grounding kit is. Does it add horse power or what??? What does it do???


Thanks

yeah it frees up some extra horses..i think around 5 maybe..it frees up the electical part of the engine and gives it more juice...its a good mod to do...makes your lights brighter and windows go up faster too...

I have the original hyperground system by sun automobile in my 5th gen, and yeah you can feel a difference in the electrical system, slightly more torque and power. Overall I like it, it improved my throttle response alot, more than my exhaust did. grin For those who wonder how you install it, it sort of routes like x-mas tree lights. It starts at the chasis, goes to the battery, tranny, Intake manifold, cylinder head, and ends at the chasis again. smile

Taken from ImportTuner

"The last item to install and test was the Hyperground ground wire system. The installation was very simple and involved grounding the engine in series at several different points in the engine bay. Without fully understanding the technology behind the unit, we were doubtful that this would make any noticeable horsepower. The tale of the tape showed differently, however; the power graph smoothed out (in the upwards direction) from 2000-4500rpm, and then really shined in the 4500-6000 rpm range, making an almost evenly distributed 3-5 hp gain. The power gain tapered from 6000 rpm to redline, but still managed to bump peak power output to 122.4. According to Hyperground, playing with different grounding spots can generate even more power."


They did this test with an '02 aero, but I would think the results would be almost universal.
