I did the "old" grounding mod this past weekend, and I have always wondered why the ABS unit is included in the connections... any thoughts on this?

How many HP did you gain? ;) I recalled that it was the largest lump of metal around - helps with the "ground".

I have all the stuff for this mod lying around for almost 2 years now - someday ....

A member, HermanH, did a write-up a couple of years ago:

I didn't do it for more HP (maybe 1 HP at most?), I just thought it made some sense from an electrical efficiency standpoint… smoother running engine, better battery charging, etc. Or, at least, it will hopefully prevent problems in the future from degraded factory ground connection(s) due to corrosion.
