    Running grounds help!

    I am about to put in a second run of grounds to chassis and motor and was wondering if it would be better to run to same grounding point as first run or ground to different parts of chassis and motor? Reasons?

    Re: Running grounds help!

    Are you asking if you should re-use the factory grounding points? If so, you'd be well served to make new ones, with the engine ground as close to the alternator case as possible or better yet, at the alternator case.

    No I already upgraded big 3 with 1/0 Stinger hpm but I got wire leftover so I want to put in second run. Just wondering if I should just put second run on same grounding points I used for the first run(strut tower and tranny)?

    I am guessing I should also have two runs from rear strut tower to rear batt bank?

    With a rear battery bank you really don't need to add any grounds to the front. You need to run at least as much or more ground wire from the last battery only in the rear bank.
