any body interested in ground kit

I asking if anybody would be interested in getting a engine grounding kit. Now i am not sure how else to explain this but its where you run wires in the engine bay to help the motor. From what i have read and seen it helps clean up the sound in your radio, also lowers your rpm's by about 300. two pics of what i am talking about.

This "fixes" a problem that does not exist. Waste of time and money.

Umm no. Im sorry...

1000 RPM at 30 MPH, is really fricken low. Anything less than that and the car is going to stall.

Im not a physicist, but lashing a bunch of cables on random bolts around your car... Ain't going to give you extra HP, as this company is claiming... 15.9 hp gained at 5800 rpm, because you put electricity grounding wires all over the engine? Sounds like snake oil to me.

That kit is ridiculous; maybe you should get the magnets for your fuel lines and a tornado for your intake.

Come on guys, easy now. What an awesome invention!

My uncle has one of these and he swears it works, especially when the speed limit goes from 65 to 55 and he has to take his foot off the gas pedal to slow down, he says that is precisely when he notices the system working because the RPM drops.

well that is why i am posting this. i am getting feedback from other people. its fine with the shoot downs i was expecting that and also i know it is done alot on ricer's. i mean come on its a 4 banger trying to move and little things here and there actually make a diff. now i am not promising or saying it will help you recover hp but the system is to take static out of the motor which can cause interference. now again its fine to smash talk i put it on my tc and noticed a big diff in my throttle response and idle so i was wondering about v8's. guess once my car is street legal again i will test it myself and do stock dyno then dyno with wires to prove people wrong or myself.
