Good question. Tell us the details of your grounding kit. It looks sweet.

Yes yes! Its a grounding kit. I bought it and have it installed. Actually, its the biggest surprise in all my modifications and the cheapest one too.

This may be a bit off-topic but let me inform you of the benefits of a grounding wire kit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Concept

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.



What does the Earth Grounding System do?

EGS 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.


What benefits does it provide?

* 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. This oscillograph indicates how voltage resistance drops at start-up with the EGS installed (right pic.).

* More stable idling :
You will hear your car engine noise quieter than before. This oscillograph shows the minimized resistance resulting from the installation of the EGS. Note the smaller waves & lower trace in the right pic.

* Smoother and faster throttle response
The upper green lines in both charts below has the Earth Grounding 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.

* Increase low & middle engine torque
It helps to achieve a close-to-perfect combustion at low or high revolution of engine, resulting in faster acceleration. A max. torque gain of 0.5kg-m and up has been achieved on a Subaru Legacy BH5.

* Better milage
In particular city driving. So this system does not just save you money on gas, but very ecological, too. One test even shows an MPG increase of up to 22% on a 1800c.c. test car.

* Better CPU operation :

* Cleaner exhaust gas :
Lower density of HC and CO.

* Brighter headlight output :
Improvement that you can see. Thanks to a better alternator performance.

* Improve car audio sound quality :
Improvement that you can hear. Thanks to an overall enhanced equipment performance including but not limited to: Car audio, power windows, power sunroof, etc

Sorry I dont know the brand. Its written in Japanese and Chinese characters. Its actually made in Taiwan.

Got it from a friend of mine who is a distributor of several auto accessories here.

I'd love to but look at my location...........cost of shipping might be more expensive than the actual product.

Its alright dude. If you find a grounding kit there in the US, get it and install it. Try to experience the difference of its benefits.
