Finally installed ground wire kit :D

Hey whassup fellas i finally had the time to install the apexi ground wire kit and boy can i say it did make a difference. I am an auto and the shifting is like butter when going through gears. I must say the start up is better and it does pull a little better but that is just on the butt dyno but i did feel it. Just one question when the car is off the A sign still brights up red, will it allways be like that, and can it drain my battery? Thanks fellas this is a very good mod esp since i paid only 120. If you guys can get it for a good price or even new its worth the money

I have this as well and the red light under the hood always stays on. I never had I problem with it draining the battery.

Plus it makes it look like you have an alarm system or something under the hood at night, so it doesn't bother me.

I did this on my last car but figured out the measurements myself and bought the wiring for like $30. It does make a difference, I thought it made things more smooth (the powerband) especially. Not a huge difference, not even something you'd see on the dyno, but definitely a nice complementary piece to the car. Plus it looks good

Not really manual, I went with the way almost everyone has gone with and the wires did reach those exact spots with the wires having a little play.

Any way you can list up your ground points and measurements to each spot? I only ask because I can buy the wire and terminals for like $30-40 and do it myself. If it's too big a deal don't worry.
