What is a grounding kit? :disappear
Still don't know what a grounding kit is and what exactly does it do.
I see everyone repling about how good it is and it takes away jerkyness but what does a grounding kit do. Sounds like somthing I could use its only $55.
Will it work on a Turbo'd RS? Thanks for any help.

Sorry I must have missed your question. From what everybody says, it can smooth out the throttle response, gets rid of some hesitation. Some people claim brighter headlights also. The kit generally smoothes out your engine.

As for your turbo RS, yes, the rs kit should fit with no issues.

A grounding kit basically puts more grounding points on your car to lower the resistance of electrical "flow." Something like that...someone correct me if i am wrong.

which wire was short? if you let me konw the lenght you need i will get one sent out ASAP.
Sorry about that
Thanks

Let Me look at the directions again Shane, I may have screwed it up. The pic didn't match My '05 RS so I had to geuss a little. I'm pretty sure the wire from the Throttle body to the drivers side of the intake manifold was about an inch maybe two short. I made it work and did notice an improvementin the smoothness of the idle and acceleration.

Yeah... Me, too. Since nothing is smoking/burning and both 1st and 2nd gears are smoother, I guess I'll just leave my guess work as is... :clap:

This is the most puzzling thing i have seen. After everthing i could have thought of, and it still does this. oh, could you try installing one wire at a time and see which one causes this? If you still have problems, please let me konw, and i will give you a refund.
freaky...

Yeah, I had to adjust a bit with my '05 OBS... But just used a couple different bolts in the end. I got the black ~ which seeing the wire core through the casing looks more like 'root beer'. But I liked it, so who cares. I just moved from SB about a year and a half ago. But, I would be willing to shoot the engine bay with your kit on (it's identical to the '05 RS) and the route I took ;)

Cheers!
