what grounding kit does to ad power?

can someone explain what grounding kit does to ad power, and what a grounding kit is? i dont know much about electrics

was....5speed with i/h/e
15.41 @ 89.30mph 2.282 60'

is....04 srt4 stock

On a normal system, electric current flows from a positive terminal to a negative terminal through the car body. But there are much resistance at connectors of body, engine and transmission. The resistance disturbs this flow of electricity to a degree that electrical components such as computer, lamp and spark plugs cannot perform at their peaks. In order to get the highest performance out of any automobile, it is necessary to achieve a maximum electricity flow with the least resistance along its electrical circuit. In short, a grounding system does to your electrical circuit like a high performance Intake & exhaust system does for the gas. We believe such system is the basic of all tune-up if you want to unleash the maximum performance of your car.

While making sure that the operational circumstance is the same, the below table indicates a 7.7% of total resistance which originates from the car body & the same 7.7% of battery voltage which is being wasted due to the absence of a grounding system.

The Grounding System can achieve an extreme improvement on electricity flow and stability by providing a direct ground path from the body, chassis and engine components to the battery negative.

This theory has been known & such system has been used in the racing world for years. Since 1.5 years ago, it has become the hottest modification performed by car enthusiasts in Japan. Its effect on automobile has been proven by dyno tests again and again.

- Faster engine start-up - You can feel the difference even with A/C on and at maximum fan speed. This system reduces the loss of electricity to nearly zero at ignition coil and produces better ignition spark.

- Stable idling - You will hear your car engine noise quieter than before.

- Throttle response - System installed. They indicate a higher torque & horsepower gain. Car used for this dyno test was a Lancer Evolution VI. A max. horsepower gain of 5hp and up has been achieved on a Honda Integra TypeR.

so i understand how it makes your electronics work better, but i dont see how it adds HP

Because if it takes less electricity to power all of the electronics, then it should take less engine power to run them.

Anyone have pics of the grounding kit installed? just curious as to the setup. Also, I would assume that this helps with a stereo system, would I be correct? Thx

Should help the quality of your sound a little. All you're gonna see is wires going every which way under the Hood. The instructions should come with the product, but I'm sure you can find them in the install section on this site.

EDIT: Here, try this LINK . Should tell you everything you want to know. Check out the install section of the site for a lot of other cool shit too. thumbsup

If I planned on doing this, should I have a local speed shop do it? Or should I do it myself? And how much would a speed shop do it for?

luckily i work for monster cable and my co-workers in production are using our 4 awg with high purity copper, special windings and duraflex jackets, 24k gold contact brass ring terminals and making them for me and my boy. i even provided the specs from hyper ground for reference:P

also, a better ground to the engine will result in a better spark from the coils, the engine should idle smoother, throttle should be way more responsive, may be good for an extra 1-3 HP too depending on how good your grounding job is. not many ignition mods we can do, since we already run a COP setup on our engines. grounding kit is a good start. I intend on installing one this spring thumbsup

I Have it but did not install it yet.
P.S.It's comes w/o installation manual but seller provides install info. if you need it. wave
P.S.GEN7FAN where in Maryland are you???
