the best thing to do is to hook up a ohm meter to the ground or some sort of meter to check if that new point is the best possible grounding point. But I am sure who ever wrote that article already knew that

Its been discussed many a times if the mod works. There are two ways to really tell if there is a difference.
1. As was already posted, hook up an multimer to it and test it.
2. Have an able bodied friend go under your hood and either ground it or not. Don't have him/her tell you if they did and then drive the car. See if you can tell when the ground is connected or not.

Man, I thought this would be the cheapest mod out there
but I guess I will either have to buy a multimer or get to the garage and have them test it

I'm glad to know that the theory works though.
