Default Grounding... Where to ground to get Results

I read in Sport Compact Car that where you ground your car will yield different results. I am going to be getting a grounding kit in a few days and I was wondering where the best points to ground were so that I could get maximum power.

Hot earth grounding kit

also where did you buy yours from, how much did it cost, and have you actually heard about good results from this? My car has 126k on it so i think this might help my car run a little better

I would also check out the vender classifieds, there is a kit from www.speedmonkee.com called the zero loss grounding kit, that everybody seems to like, and you can also check out ebay, they usualy have good deals too.

Or you could spend about $15 at a car audio store and by the beefiest wire they have with gold connectors and follow the instructions on ScoobyMods

I ran one wire from battery negative to passenger's strut tower and another wire from battery negative to the intake manifold bolt nearest to the battery. It made my idle consistently smooth. I didn't go any further with the grounding mod.

I have a grounding kit, but I heard that its where you ground that makes results.

I was more or less just wondering where everyone was choosing there grounding points.
