DIY: Groundwire Kit

Recently purchased a groudning kit of of ebay, and thought I'd share my install with those interested.

Here is the kit I purchased:

This is what was included in the Kit:

Photos seem to be the easiest way for people to understand an install, so I'll be using mainly the photos I took during the process for this DII.

Start by removing the stock negative terminal and replacing it with the one included in the kit. Now when you remove the stock terminal make sure you only remove the battery terminal adaptor. Leave the factory begative ground wire in place, it will be used wih the new terminal adapter that comes with the kit.

sorry I don't have other angles of the terminal set-up, but it's easy to figure out so don't worry.

Now you don't have to follow me as far as my connections points. You can choose to connect to anywhere you'de like, but here is how I started:

Connection point from terminal to this point.

second wire:

this is even easier to figure out, but just incase here is a closer view of it connected to the throttle body.

Third grounding point:

from there I lead the third wire to this point.

Now you'll move on to wire number 4:

here is were I connected it to.

fifth wire:

heads down to the tranny, and this is the only mounting point which I did not use a factory nut to mount. Had to use one of the 10mm bolts supplied with the kit. here is the point.

sixth point:
Now remember that not all wires need to be connected to the terminal as long as they are grounding to either the vehicle or go off one of the other ground points. Here is how I grounded my sixth wire.

the wire then goes around to the back and downward where I mounted it to here.

seventh and final wire. What I chose to do was start off from where I connected the fifth wire. here it is connected.

Now from there I lead it around the front and towards the back from underneath the engine like this.

remember you have the option to connect it somewhere else, this is only the area I chose to connect to as it was the farthest from all of my other grounding points. I also tried to leave the least amount of wire hanging as you can tell in the pic above, just incase there is possibility of it getting caught on something. I actually got the wire to sit higher then the bottom of the front bumper.

Now here is my final connection point.

And there you have it, your car is now very well grounded.
Before putting the engine cover back on make sure to zip-tie any wires that might need to be held away from certain area, or just to keep some from moving around to new locations.
Once again here is the final product once it's all put together:

Nice, clean finish.
