People that buy these things looking for more "horsepower" should instead redirect their search toward more "horse sense". <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Re: anyone done grounding wires? (R_Rated)

As i know some peoples installed this ground wire on her Volvo. They said for old car should improve the performance a little bit. Only a little bit.<p>If your car is within 6 years old, no need to install this stuff. If you still want to try it, please buy the correct model for Volvo.<p><A HREF="http://www.sun-auto.co.jp/html/pro_02/hot_inazma_sp.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sun-auto.co.jp/html....html</A><p><IMG SRC="http://car.webplus.ne.jp/parts_photo/8354/pam/z8354926.jpg" BORDER="0">

looking at this from an electrical engineering standpoint, there is no way that by simply adding grounding wires you are going to add power. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">
