Review: Racingline Grounding Kit

Product: Racingline Grounding Kit
Date: Dec 24th, 2010
Price: $70-ish with alternator cable.

Quality of Product: 9 (out of 10)
Ease of Installation: 6
Installation time: few hours
Recommend?: Yes

Pros:
- Cables were sturdy and well built
- Color matching
- Optional alternator cable

Cons:
- Installation was more difficult than I thought
- Battery posts need extension bolts

Additional info/Overall Impression:

The grounding kit cut down on my audio noise in my aftermarket sound system and hopefully provides a better operating environment for my electrical system. I had to cut two feet off the alternator cable and improvise the included ground points. The kit in primarily made for the 07 3.5L and is compatible with others.

Instructions are vague if you don't understand where the picture is taken and the video made by Bam helps a lot.

Have you seen a improvement with these wires installed. I'm thinking about getting them. Opinions?

If you have the money and have an audio system, then I would recommend it. If you don't have money, I wouldn't. Google around for grounding kit to see the pros of this mod specifically. Use that to determine if it is worth you cash or not.

Is the alternator cord that cost extra for the ground or power wire? That was a bit confusing on their website.

Power wire. It's the red wire that runs from my alternative to my battery.

Ok, thanks. For example the wire that attaches to the radiator mount kind of behind the left light, do you leave the ground that is already attached there?

Check out my thread about grounding kits. It's extremely informative about ground kits in general. I recommend to give it a look.

This is big in the car audio world.. Makes your cars electrical about 20 to 25 percent more efficient.. $70 is a bit high.. You can go to knukoncept and grab about 20 foot 1/0 gauge wire for about $25 bucks. .. Do 3 grounds and one to the alternator positive and it makes a big difference.. I do recommend upgrading the actual battery terminals just to make life easier.. I think 5 to 6 grounds is a bit of an overkill but to each his own.. Overall a great upgrade for any car without 1/0 gauge running through it like some bmw's and benz's have

Called The Big 3. Is it cheaper to DIY? Of course. I wanted the blue colors and less hassle. Things are almost always cheaper to DIY. In reality, $70 isn't that bad for a car mod.

Yeah was just posting a little extra info just incase someone didn't wanna shell out $70.. Knukoncept carries red, blue, and black power wire.. And anyone looking for good rca's they have those also.. Overall it's a well worth it upgrade rather its $45 or $80
