Here is how i did my 0 gauge ground cable upgrade:

pb by Mark Sheriff, on Flickr
here is what the stock ground cable looks like before modification^


0 gauge cable on the left vs. the stock cable on the right^


^stock ground cable pulled out and the terminal cut off, this is how you will slide off the voltage sensor.


^measured and cut the wires to length based on the length of the stock ground connector when i pulled it out, then used my hydraulic crimp tool to get the ring terminals on.


^i had to carefully sand/file the hole in the voltage sensor bigger to be able to fit the 0 gauge cable through.


^voltage sensor inline and all ring terminals on
note: you make the ground to engine block cable the same way, it just wont have a voltage senor inline.


^here is what the connections on the bracket looks like, i added an additional ground to chassis from this bracket to a factory ground point near the headlight, when you remove your battery you will be able to see two factory ground points to the left of the headlight, i chose one and connected my ground there, again that area was sanded to bare metal also for a good connection.

Thanks

it was done to allow better flow of current and stabilize voltage to my amps for my sound system, in general it helps the vehicles electrical system.

How many watts is your sound system? And with the 0 do you happen to know how many volts your running ? Reason I ask is because I would like to do the big 3. I'm running 2000w at 1ohm
