Do a search on "single point ground" and you'll see what he's doing. I'm curious to hear how it goes.

ok... so here it is. I got 8 gauge wire, ring terminals, and wire loom. Wired to 5 stock bolt locations under the hood. I was like, whatever, we'll see.....

I have TurboXS stage2, Blitz intake, boost controller, and that's about it. It was a bit choppy and indecisive with high gain settings, or high boost sometimes. Also had hesitation... some people didn't see or feel much difference with this "mod".

All i can say is WOW! NIGHT nad DAY difference! I recommend this to everyone. It is MUCH smoother, and I can turn my gain up pretty high and it just pulls... no chopiness or indecisiveness.

DO IT.

my max boost is 16.75 or 1.14

I try not to go over that. My gain is now at 20... it feels GOOD.

Stock turbo for now.. will be going to the TurboXS stage 4 shortly.

Yes, but I am looking for someone local, besides.. have you read the posts in any of those threads...
my bs meter has broken, and I don't want to wade through all that CRAP to not find the answer I am looking for.
I didn't see, in any of the 3 threads that i looked through... someone that said, I did this mod, connected wires here here and here. and felt this, dyno'd this or oscilloscoped that.


that's what i'm looking for.

You aren't going to see anything from dyno #'s. This is a driveability problem, little interuption and hesitation that goes away. Not going to really do much on a dyno. If somebody says this is where I put them this is the wire I used and it works, then you've got all your info. Not trying to sound rude just stating some good facts.
