My Hyper Ground System Install with picture.

After my post of winter mods I got a lot of questions about how I did my ground setup, so here it is.
Keep in mind this is my personal setup and there may be better (or worse) ways to do it.... so copy at your own risk :-)



I also suggest adding an extra ECU ground.

Great pic, that will help others alot I'm sure. Quick question then, any noticable difference? Not in butt dyno HP but in smoothness or drivability?

I am in Saudi right now and I guess I have been missing out on all the talk about this hyper ground system. So if I could just ask a couple of questions about it. I went to the link that told me about it and gave the dyno comparison but has any one else done a dyno test that can confirm that you will see results, and what if you have your battery relocated to the back in the storage bin behind the driver seat will the grounding lines reach. And for the last question how long does it take to install? Thanks for the help.

Question for you Damian, how does the insulation on the hyper ground wires for the downpipe and cat stand up to the heat from the exhaust? In one of your earlier threads you showed how you used coaxial cable wrapped around the OEM ground for the cat/muffler. Do you think the hyper ground wires make a better ground wire then the coaxial/OEM combination?

Also thank you for the great threads you have made. Full of useful info and great images, keep them coming.

the hypergournd is much better than the coax crap i tired (heheh) and as long as you look the wire a away from directly touchign the pipes, it holds up fine to the heat. the ends get a little melted, but no bigie.

>>Also thank you for the great threads you have made. Full of useful info and great images, keep them coming.

thanks!!! :-)

Thanks Damian, hyper ground wires or equivalent it will be. All I have to do now is wait for the snow to melt and summer to arrive.

A little off the subject but - Damian, I saved your site on my favorites, I was showing the vids to a bunch of people at work.
They loved the race stuff, but the most laughs came from the light saber stuff...
