Installing a grounding kit is a safe and reliable way of creating a low resistance ground path. The kit provides direct ground paths from battery negative to body, chassis, and specific engine components to give a noticeable improvement in electrical circulation.

Reduced electrical “noise” can improve ECU signals and throttle response resulting in better performance and reduction in flat spots, and you can see many more benefits associated with improved grounding such as increased bhp & torque, stabilised idle, brighter headlamps, quicker starting, reduced audio noise, reduced heater matrix/radiator core corrosion.



Fitting
Full step-by-step fitting instructions are provided with the kit including a schematic diagram of your engine bay showing the suggested grounding cable positions.

No expert knowledge is needed and fitting should take less than an hour, usually far less.

Fitting involves the removal of specific, easily accessible, pre-existing bolts which are positioned on effective grounding points around the Skyline engine bay in order to ground each of the supplied cables in the correct order. One stock earth strap is retained and is attached to the new negative battery clamp.



The kit
- Six 60A Rated 99.9999% oxygen free copper core grounding cables in a choice of colours with preattached gold plated connectors, the size of the connectors and lengths of cables are designed to specifically fit the intended Skyline grounding points.

- Gold plated negative battery terminal

- Stock earth strap o-ring connector (gold plated)

- Cable ties to help route the wires.

- Full clear instructions, specific to your Nissan GT-R

Availiable in; Black, Red, Clear, Blue or Purple
Usually delivered in 14 days, but allow up to 28.

OK - in that case I suggest you remove it from the shop.

The claims are exaggerated and not worthy or a car such as a GTR, otherwise it would be OE equipment for all cars. The scam has been around the houses for a while now.

Don't mind being proved wrong though, anyone?

I've always called them placebo wires.....

Wont do any harm, and each to their own.

I think any car over time develops poor earthing as the metal deteriorates. They have proven extremely popular for RB cars and maybe this is because of the age of the cars. Whilst this may not be the case in newer cars and may not be a necessary item for an R35 it can't do any harm and does add a positive visual attraction to the engine bay

On my R33 GTR we fitted a Circle Earth Kit and did some test before and after. There were noticable and measurable differences as a result where the ECU was using different sensors and pick up points for its data feeds. Remember 'earth' always has some potential level and is never completely zero, so a more consistent and even earth makes a difference as a result
