Jdm Ground Wire, Do They Work?

I saw this on Ebay and wondered if it really worked. Because it kinda sounds like what they Turbonator would be. Another gadget that doesn't work

uhhhh..... first of all it is not an HKS product... it says it just has to logo. I would venture a guess and say no.. but I can not tell where the would go or what it would do... don't we already have a ground wire? I'm so confused... and look at the shipping costs.

That will do NOTHING for you. You really only need it if you have a plasma ignition system, which is basically an ignition system that fires a lot harder than "normal" ignition systems, it's for race engines that dump a lot of gas into the cylinder and needs a stronger spark to ignite it all. OR if you have a s**tload of accesories that need the extra ground (ie amps, capacitors, all that sound crap and more).

I'm pretty sure if you try to hook that up anyway on a BMW it'll mess the entire system up. As far as electricity and the flow in their cars, those germans know their stuff.

Bottom line, don't waste your money!

well, regardless of what these other folks just said...

I ground kit isnt going to hurt your car for certain, and obviously it doesnt matter if its Japanese or not, its wire cabling! Those ground kits are used IN ADDITION to the ground wires presently in the car. If you run a sound system in your car, look into the "Big 3" or the "Magic 3" ground system - its just a matter of adding a few larger guage ground wires between a few specific points under the hood, I'm not certain how much a difference it would make since the battery is in the trunk, but again its probably not going to hurt; also I would just make a few ground wires myself instead of buying a kit.

ps - I had Nissan SE-R Spec V that only had an 80 amp alternator, and doing the Big 3 ground upgrade helped increase throttle response, reduce engine noise in the electrical system, and increased volteage to my sound system.

pps - I guess you should always consider that not EVERYONE knows exactly what they talking about on the board here, search other forums too!
