Ground Wire Kits

Hey,
Just wondering if ground wiring kits really do anything, because I read online that they:

-Gain Torque and Horsepower.

-Increased Fuel Mileage.

-Better Throttle Response.

-Reduced Emissions.

-Brighter Headlights.

-Reduced Audio Noise.

-Gain instant 5-8 Horse Power.

However, I have also read that they do absolutely nothing. Anyone know?

I think if you replace your old ground wires then you will acheive your old stock performance again.....is what he's saying....not change your spark plugs tho that would be a good idea if they are old.

It helps for sure, I notice stable RPM after install them. Just make your own, I connect everything up like Sun performance or whatever it called, 5 connections in total, cost me 20 bucks for copper connectors and 4g wires.

no, the stock ground wires tend to corrode over time and there is more resistance through the wire. Replacing the grounds reduces the resistance in the wire and basically brings ur grounding setup back up to what it was from the factory.

if you really wanna do the whole ground wire thing....don't waste you're $$ on those stupid overpriced kits

make your own with some power wire and ring terminals instead for a fraction of the cost
