Starter relay overload.

Has anyone ran into this problem. With the MSD box, electric fan, Amp, high torque starter wire, battery wire and all the other little factory wires my starter relay is overloaded and I can't get the nut on. I guess I could connect to the battery terminals. But I was going for a clean engine compartment. Is there a power block or strip I can wire in to take the load off the starter relay. Any ideas would help.

i need to find something good and clean for that issue also. thats about the worst looking area under my hood. the started relay looks like it got tangled in a ball of yarn.

Yes they do. I running EFI and keeping all my ECU sensor's. I'm trying to hide the harness in the fender wells. I found several articles on how to and it seems to be working ok. I only had to lengthen a couple. But I need to either build a power distribution box or find a simple one off something.

I seen them, maybe I will see what I can come up with. I'm surprised there is no aftermarket box. I know we are not the only one with this issue.

It was an image tab google search for automotive distribution blocks.
I couldn't see it on my iPad, but could on my android and full site. Open the browser and you will see it.

I have an I-phone because I actually live in an area where I can't get Internet services. I have to rely on my phone with moderate 3-g but most of the time the big E network. Ya I know hillbilly right. Sometimes I can see links and most of the time no.
