    Should have practically 0 resistance running it straight from the battery. If you are getting bad voltage drop maybe your battery isn't in great condition? A dying battery will cause heavy voltage drop

    You can try grounding it to the chassis and see if it helps any but I don't think it will be any improvement, a direct ground to the battery is the best ground you can get.

    What kind of alternator are you running? not enough amps = dead battery/voltage drops.

    He has a singer 270 or so and try to check where the rear batt is grounded a bad ground will cause massive voltage drop as in dc circuits the ground is the return path

    Those look sick!!! They should work out ok in the old enclosure, but with the extra weight and such it may have some issues with flex perhaps as it wasn't really built with the those massive tanks in mind lol. Tuning will be altered a bit as well do to displacement.


    Get these in installed already and let is know what you think.

    I am pretty sure he has a grounding issueissue as he is having bad voltage drop. We had this issue once in a buddies explorer I took a wire grounded his Batts to the alt bot and wham voltage stayed up much better.

    That is the new version of the z unless you want to see a v4 come out.
