Apexi Power Ground kit


OK tonight I installed the new apexi ground kit on my 6-Speed. It works great and looks awesome. I definetly feel a little more torque and my idle is way smooth now. I was one of the ones that noticed the rough idle in our cars. Also when i turned on the ac i got no rpm drop. It is definetly a good buy and I would recomend this Mod to anybody. I will post pics of my clever install soon in my gallery on this web site. Look under sick6-speed.

P.S. The little apexi glowing light is cool as well and never turns off BEAUTIFULL!!!!!!!!!

I will definetly be posting pics of it tonight. I got the ground kit for a 195.00. I also got it from my good friend Kitty over at Autolink motorworks. I drove the car to work this morning and it feels way better and feels more efficent. I am very happy with it. Thank you Apexi.

Maybe I don't understand correctly, but can't you just spend 20 bucks on some low-gauge audio power cable and some crimps, and run a few lines from your battery to a couple of spots in your engine bay? That's what this box does isn't it? Or is there something else (I hope, for $195) that it does?

I recommend that you search on the internet and read about this product. It is a stabilizer box and hooks up to your battery and then sends a signal to all the grounding points. No it is not just a bunch of wires. They did a dyno test for the wrx sti (garbage car) and it made 8 horsepower to the wheels and 4 pounds of torque. The technology for the money is there and it looks trick.

yessir. constant source voltages mean more reliable electrical components. do you know what voltage it holds the system at?

i'd really like to take that thing apart and see how it works...

For some reason the WRX always gain the most from these kind of upgrades. I've seen dynos of Hyper Ground Wire done on WRX and they gain pretty decent power. But on Honda's the gain is very low b/c we have a good setup already (or so I've been told).

But none the less you're safe guarding you're electrical components.

Ok everybody I had just posted pics of the Apexi Ground kit in my car. Personally I think the electrical system is mediocre. I don't think its good. Our cars also have way more electonics going on than a wrx. Ex: ETC,TCS,8 airbags etc. Definetly a neccesity especially if you plan on using the AC. Enjoy Pics. They are at the link at the bottom of my cars description.

Damn those lights are nice looking.

Quick question for sick6-speed, is the apexi unit something that you installed yourself or did u have it done at a shop. Im big on DIY projects, just curious how hard it would be to install something like this.

Ok, Iappreciate the comments on the liscence plate, but let me tell you that I am trying to go for the JDM style. I have seen many new inspires with the plate on the side. I also wanted to be different. Yes I would totally not like to have it there at all but I am tired of getting stupid fix it tickets. Point is is that its different!!!! I prefer the Apexi over the other hyper ground wires. 1 because its a new style. 2 because it has a little lit logo. 3rd I have the Apexi v-afc2 and want to keep matching brands as much as I can. Also, Apexi has a great name and they stand by there product. As far as the install goes. It was relatively simple but it requrires some time to do it clean and make sure everything is secure. it took me about 2 hours to think up the install on where i wanted to put it. I love it and would definetly reccomend this product!!!!!!!!

If you need any help please ask. I am willing to help out a fellow enthusiast!!!!!

I AM SO GLAD EVERYBODY LIKES THE INSPIRE HEADLIGHTS!
THERE SICK!!!!

sick6-speed,

That's a cool toy. My car's headlights noticeably dim now and then (even without running any other accessories like A/C or seat heaters) and I bet this voltage regulator would fix that. $200 is more than I'd pay to fix this problem though. Would you happen to know if there's anything cheaper that would do the trick?

Thanks for any insight.

I bet this apexi power ground kit can cure that steady voltage problem. I know that there are other kits out there, but I like the Apexi brand and it is the nicest looking piece out thyere right now. Definetly worth every cent I paid!!!!!!!!

They are Maido GR5's which is a true multi piece wheel. They are 20x8.5 and have a +44 offset. I would recommend this combination to anybody that has an 03 coupe and above. Retail price on the rims is 3,800 with tires. Of course the nitto nt555 at 225/35/20..
Thank you for the complement!!!!!!
