I'm looking to make a big three kit for you guys, if your interested.
This kit will be already cut to length with soldered copper terminals.So this will be a very simple bolt on project.

The kit will include4 gauge oxygen free copper (cable itself has 2058 thin strands of copper)Copper terminals Zip ties.Shipping is included in the price

Price will be $60(Shipping included)
I am also going to be making a 1/0 gauge kit as well.
Because of the high quality cable and the amount of strains (5145) I will have to use a 2/0 gauge terminal to get everything to fit properly.
1/0 gauge price is $90 (shipping included)

"Oxygen free copper" takes out 99.9% of oxygen from the copper, and makes it resistant to corrosion.
The wires also run at much lower temps

If you are interested let me know and we can get a list started.

This is upgrading your Alternator Power wire to your positive terminal battery, Neg terminal wire to the chassis, and engine block wire to the chassis.

This helps the battery recharge faster by allowing more current flow.
Puts less strain on electrical system by having less restrictive/bigger wire.
Helps you gain higher voltage.
Reduces the amount of light dimming due to high powered audio system or adding extra accessories.

Theoretically this will help your spark plugs because the engine has a better ground.

Remember positive is coming from alternator/battery and the engine is used as the ground to the chassis. so thats why spark plugs only have a positive cable attached and can still create a spark.

So this is for wiring SEPARATE from the wires that I have running to my amp/subs/etc.? If so count me in, I had my car sitting and went to show my mom my new subs, turned my car on, fired them up, and the head lights flickered a bit. Granted its because I wasn't driving or anything, but if this wire upgrade will help prevent flickering, I need it for car shows.

This wiring upgrade is a must have for anyone who has upgraded their car audio system. It is the FIRST thing anyone should do to attack a headlight dimming or voltage issue with their cars, the second being to add an additional deep cycle battery. The alternator provides up to 140 amps of current that has goes through one 4 gauge wire. Adding a second 4 gauge wire or replacing the existing wire with a 0/1 gauge wire will significantly strengthen the electrical system. It may not entirely fix the light dimming issue, but it will certainly help, and you'll need it if you add a second battery later anyway. It's a very common upgrade in the car audio world and I highly recommend it.

Terry, put me down for a set of 4 gauge.

Just ordered the terminals (2/0 and 2 ga)
Also ordered some 1/0 gauge as well.
I already have the wire for a 4 ga

Andrei will be getting the 4ga kit when its completed

The first person to pay for the 1/0 kit will get the this kit.

Here are the pics ill add a description when I have time.
Also note that the terms pictured in this install are too small that's why they look like they do. I've since then gotten bigger terms that make the kits perfect.

Vehicle Auto part Car Engine Subcompact car

Electronics Auto part Technology Bumper Automotive lighting

Auto part Fuel line Vehicle Car Engine

Auto part Fictional character Vehicle Brake Metal
Auto part

Missing the pic that goes to the positive side of battery (will take one ASAP)
