Default Anyone ever install a "grounding" kit before?

I'm a big time speed nut and I'm always looking for an extra edge. My brother has one of these on his tuner car and he says it helps to have one of these. It's a simple installation that gives you a better electrical grounding source. Makes your electrical components run better. There are several brands out there. Here is one I found on e-bay:

Has anyone installed one of these on there cruiser before?

On another PT Forum, that you can't link to from here, several have, and there are reports that headlight dimming is reduced. I feel it's like chicken soup - it can't hurt. I noticed AdvanceAuto has a selection of "battery cables", and I plan to get some different lengths and do it. Called "supergrounding".

I bought one of the 'kits" off eBay. Used the wires from the negative terminal to ground the engine block, computer and body. Didn't notice any difference but like QSD said...I love Chicken Soup!

Did you also ground your alternator? You should be able to use all the wires provided with the grounding kit. I think there are 7.

Here is an example. Make sure you ground all the wires provided, or you probably won't see any difference.

I really doubt that it would make any significant difference but it you want to deplete your "soup budget" [:0] then go for it!
