OK...I just did this about a month ago and here's what I remembered from my custom grounding kit. Remember, this kit was made to connect end-to-end to the battery. Battery to factory grounding point near driver side chassis(any one will work). That to one of the couple bolts for the starter (another factory grounding point). That to the far right (driver side) coil screw (the ones that hold down the coil to the head cover). That to the far left coil screw. That to one of the mounting points for the alternator brackets. From that to a factory grounding point near the front-left portion of the head (near the plastic cam, etc. cover). That to a factory grounding point on the pass. side chassis (near, under, or around the A/C lines). Other than that...Good Luck.

I bought one of those and just used the wires.

I did from point to point. Not the same ones as mentioned above, but the ones in that diagram that is somewhere in the forum. Seems to have done nothing. Waste of money. LOL.

I have heard good things about ground fusion's grounding kits but I don't have any experience with it myself, so I couldn't really say myself, but I've read some threads and read nothing but good things about them.

just from kind of reading around a bit, I've heard that grounding kits are just about pointless unless you get a voltage stabilizer.

I've installed that same kit, although I only hooked up at the factory ground points. (only 4 points that I could see) I also installed a CAI at the same time, so I'm not sure as to what the gains are, but between the 2 I definately notice mid gains.

I guess the ignition is a little quicker to start the motor as well.

Soon I'll be adding a few more ground points, and I'll let you know if it helps/hurts anything.
