Default Engine Grounding kits ? Worth the trouble

Are these things worth the trouble, and if so, how much trouble would it be to install one.

I can see the possible uses, but will you physicaly see an improvement.

I bought one and don't really care for it, no instructions for installation, however not real hard to install.

It's not going to give you any significant HP gains, but improving your grounds is never abad idea

I think that's the first auction I've seen for grounding wires where the seller doesn't claim it will increase hp. But yeah, like forty said improving your grounds is never a bad idea.

im running a grounding kit and it realy smoothed out the idle and crispened up the power curve. the whole engine just felt better, not saying it increased any horsepower but the engine definitly liked it being able to ground better than those twig grounding wires that come factory.

its a couple bucks go for it i like mine

as stated above no power gains........and as stated above i noticed a smoother idle and reduced background noise through my stereo. however i dont think its worth the money when you can buy the parts yourself and do it cheaper if your looking at those ebay mugen crap that is.

thats really all it is is a better ground source......a better ground gives you a better electrical connections allowing all sensors to work at there best in most cases.
