Response to ground connector

Starting the car is the biggest demand on the car's battery/electrical system. The starter motor when cranking will take around 200 amps of power. The rest of the electrical demands for the car won't come close to that. So hook the negative cable from the battery to the engine block and put a strap to the frame for the rest of the car's ground. I looked in one of the factory manuals I got and counldn't find a picture of where the factory put the wire, so I don't know. What I do know is that I ran my Mustang's battery ground wire right to one of the motor mount bolts on the block with the frame strap running from the other bolt on the block to a stud on the frame. Whatever you hook them to, make sure that it is clean metal and not covered with a bunch of paint or dirt.
