    i bought a knukonceptz positive battery terminal but is it the right one??

    Ok,
    I bought a battery terminal so i could run 1 0 gauge and 1 4 gauge from the battery. The terminal hooks up to the positive terminal of the battery in my Grand Prix. Is this the right terminal, or should i have gone with a negative terminal?

    They are exactly the same except one has a + and one has a - engraved on them. It took me a couple of minute to notice the difference when i looked at them on their website.

    Positive is bigger. I got a negative for free and had a ***** of a time getting it on the positive, although I did pull it off

    Have you seen your battery ever? Your Grand Prix might have side post terminals so hopefully you researched a bit beforehand.

    I stand corrected. Jeez, I installed my set a few weeks ago and never even noticed. I need to pay a little more attention to what I put in my vehicle.

    yes ive seen and measured my battery to find a proper yellow top that would fit. the posts are on the top not the side, and the windshield washer jug is not on it. i was wondering if it made a difference what terminal i hooked up my power wires to, which is my main question. (or does it not matter?)
