Interest in Ted's Custom Big 3(4) Kit? *UPDATE: PICS ADDED*

Postby MisterTedster » Wed Dec 23, 2009 4:35 pm

Hey Guys, I just finished putting in a Big 3 upgrade with 0 gauge wire. I figure I can make these kits and sell them at about $40-50 + shipping.

I would also provide detailed instructions on how to install the wires. Best of all, the grounds wire into the same exact stock ground points.

Would there be any interest in these?

Btw, if you're wondering if it made any difference, my butt dyno tells me none to very little. However, there is no dimming from my custom sound system and the car idles and revs noticeably smoother.

edit: forgot to mention, the voltage output at the battery also increased! My sound system is also much louder. I achieve the same volume now at 35 as I did at ~40-45 before.

^ That's where I grounded the tranny
Image
^Ground to manfold and left engine block
Image
^Fuse to positive, I've read conflicting opinions on whether a fuse is needed
Image
^Positive wire connected to alternator
Image
^Ground wire to right engine block
Image
^Ground to frame on driver side

*Note these are all the stock ground locations except for the tranny, I couldn't get the bolt off for the tranny ground, so I just added a new one.

Do you have pics of the final install on your car?
I may be interested.
Trust me, I'm a technician.

Yeah, I'll get them up as soon as I get my digicam back from my cousin. It's not easily visible since the wires run along the stock ground wires. The positive wire will be the only one you'll see.

I'm also considering just making a complete grounding kit with many more grounding points than just the Big 3 as a separate kit. Maybe Ill call it Ted's Big '5' upgrade or something. =P

I'll experiment on my car and decide if it's worth the extra expense for people to buy.

Just wanted to update that I ran a ground to the transmission from the chassis, and I must say, it shifts noticeably smoother while accelerating and when changing gears.

I could not get it mount on the stock ground location however, that bolt is impossible to get out! And this is coming from a guy who had no problem whatsoever putting in a TRD rsb. My 200 pound plus frame just could not unbolt it.
