As we all know, electrons travel on the outside of each strand of wire, and the more strands the better.

REAL grounding kits like the ones Hyper Ground makes contains over 1477 strands of 99% pure copper

Other grounding systems use less than 300 strands and some other brands use only aluminum wire that costs less, but doesnt nearly perform as well as copper

Hyper Ground Systems sells for about $100

This sounds like marketing BS. The more strands you have in a wire only makes a difference in the flexibility of it. It is much cheaper to do it yourself, just buy yourself some wire and terminals and whatnot and it's done.

You're too late man, I did mine with welding cable already, 0 gauge. Did that when I transfered the battery to the trunk.. The downside however, since there's so many fine strands in the cable, I can't bend it too much, oterwise it's all good. I used a crimp-able connector, but instead of crimping it, I filled the connector with good solder using my hand held torch, dip the cable into the connector and let it cool off of the jig. Ain't no way that thing getting out. I now got a snake traveling between the trunk and the engine bay through the interior.

Edit: surprisingly, the cable's insulation is just so so, but look at the size of that coopers. The grounds were left at 4awg, new cable. Works good. And I drilled the battery tray through the trunk's floor for a secure mount and put the battery in one of those el-cheapo plastic battery box (to comply with SCCA regulation, besides I also got some other metal objects in the trunk) and a 100amp breaker switch in case shit happens.
100amp fuse is a rare find, and with a breaker switch, if something got shorted out, simple, fix the problem and flip back the switch. Saves me a bunch of fuses too.
