Do you mean for a frounding kit type install?
I made my own, using a TB bolt, behind the ECU flange on the firewall, an alternator bolt, the sensor ground bolt on the driver's shock tower, and upgraded the batt-chassis ground. I tied them all together at the chassis ground right behind the battery.
Hope this helps- some guys have reported gains using different points, but each to his own...

Copper wire is all the same when used for grounding. (when comparing the same gauges)
No need to go spend $3 per foot for 4 gauge wire when off brand can be had for much less.
I'd guess just a few dollars to make one yourself.

after reading that I feel that its not worth the money...the grounding spots on my car should be adequate and not deteriorated....but I bought 4 guage wire and am in the process of running the grounds as we speak :D

Remember that there is no need to remove the factory ground wires. Current will take the path of least resistance, so adding a wire rather than replacing it will not hurt anything. Plus, its much easier to go back to stock form should you want to.

Anyone have any ideas about what the Nissan Warranty boys will say about this???

I'm completely paranoid to do ANYTHING to my car until my warranty is up.

IMO, this is only going to help the car perform better, more efficiently, but then so does a CAI, and Nissan says they void the warranty, so...

Anyone had any experience with THAT???

And I'm heading down to Home Depot to get my wires and stuff, cheapest place to buy wiring by far. Mind you I'm in Canada, so I have no Idea if the American stores have the same line of products as us Igloo dwellers...
