Hi I'm currently wiring a power capacitor into my car audio system. I'm using a 0 gauge wire direct from the battery with an inlined fuse to a distribution block. To the power distribution block I have a 4 channel amp connected a mono block amp and the power capacitor via 4 gauge wiring. The ground distribution block has the 2 amps connected via 4 gauge wiring to a 0 gauge connected to the chassis of the vehicle. My question is can I attach the ground of the power capacitor to the ground distribution block? Thanks in advance. I'll be installing the following power cap.

It is not going to make any difference. That kind of cap is a band aid on a bullet wound.

If you want to use the cap. Run your power from the battery to the cap. From the cap to the distribution block. Ground to the cap. And from the cap to the ground distribution.
