Default Grounding kit ?????

Is it really true the thicker the grounding wires are the better ground you get? there are 10,6 and 4 Gauges. so I guess 4 is the thickest wire? I want to change mine to 4 gauge what brands do you recommend? or just go for any 4 gauges? and avoid the placebo effect!

placebo??? MSL has an AT and the GW have been proven to give better throttle response and more precise Manu-matic shifting...vs the OEM Lag.....a 6MT will not benefit from the GW usually tho

MSL, id look for a guy on G35driver by name xSxExCx he makes a custom grounding kit colors include, red, blue, and smoke

I have read that they can benefit a 5AT. MSL's post says he already has grounding wires that he wants to change. I'm saying different wires won't make a difference. I have 8 gauge audio wires on my 5AT sedan.

I like how your turned out. the one U have is soft and I guess can't take the heat from the engine and it feels saggy.

How about the 4 gauge question? do you guys think 4 gauge is better than 6 gauge? I try to find that name 04GC A/T. thanks for the info.

+1 to what Gil said...keep the current gauge you have upgrading wont give any noticeable difference ...mine isnt saggy i have it loose and ziptied to keep a more professional look....all SEC kits come precut to exact length in the G not a universal kit so it looks nicer...i cant recall my current gauge but iv had no burning or problems with mine

Honestly I don't see the point of using huge wires for grounding. There is no sizable current flow which is what huge wires are used for. The only benefit I can think of is decreased resistance per foot, but that is still quite insignificant.
16 gauge = .004094 ohms/ft
4 gauge = .000253 ohms/ft


My 2: You have one, don't waste your money on another one.

Will a grounding kit help reduce any engine whine interference noise from an aftermarket stereo install or would it make a difference at all on this issue? I'm in the process of an aftermarket stereo install and wondering if this might be an issue once it is completed.

From what I have read on them they work well for all electronic devices, especially radio equipment.

my main beef with them is the overkill on wire gauge...
