just read the acticle from the HK car mag. tonight, they had the test regarding the ground wire, it's roughly 0.1-0.4 V increased after installed the new ground wire.
HKD$700 for it.
how much you bought it for?

They had it advertised in the new products section at Taka Kaira not too long ago. I even posted it up in the NA forum...a lot of guys say that it's basically hocus pocus. It works yes, but to pay that much money I don't think it's worth it. You can achieve the same effect if you do it yourself with wires and stuff.

I think the concept behind this is with a bunch of grounds connected from the engine to the body or battery, will cause it to have less resistance between the engine and the body/battery. With the decrease in resistance the sensors and other electrical equipment attach to the engine will recieve more power due to the decrease in resistance. So with more free power the alternator does not need to work as hard, putting off some load off your engine.

But I don't think you'll feel any big difference.

Yeah, that's about right.

Does it not have to do with improving spark propagation? Because if the block is well grounded (negative field), then there is a larger voltage difference between the positive spark and the ambient air ==> bigger spark.

????

I thought this was only necessary for fooked up, repaired cars that have front ends made of Bondo.

hmmm.. bigger spark hmmm.... I guess it really depends on what the spark consist of. Never really thought about it.. Well Voltage = Amperage x Resistance. If resistance goes down then I guess it would make a bigger spark. But this might be the case on regular distrubitor ignition vehicle becuase the spark jumps to ground.

On our car it uses DIS which have a waste spark side (+ spark and - spark). The positive spark comes out one side of the coil pack through the spark plug wires and plug then travel through the engine and reverse the fire of the spark plug back into the wires and to other side of the coil pack. So I doubt it would work too well for our car..

Enought info for your brain Joe?

Hahahaha.. we actually got a Van that had a prblem with grouding.. The alternator wasn't charging.. so we stuck another ground to the vehicle after some test and it worked..

So where on the engine block would you attach the wires to?

Interesting bit about direct ignition ... but the EJ20's have coil-in-plug design so maybe that has an effect (i.e., the field around the coil being more negative or some****likethat).

If ya wanna people to post, all ya gotta do is mention something about Kelfo's love interests ... and they will come.

Could you post any pics on how the connection , I am interesting for DIY, since I got a roll of 8 gauge wire and a bag of gold plate stereo (-) connector. I think its thick enough for doing the ground wire , just don't know where to place the ground wire back to the battery's (-) termanal!!

Thanks for your help!!
