It's just a simple battery cable that bolts to the frame of the car and to the motor. Don't over think it. Your just completing the ground

Sweet so a white from each motor mount to any part of the body. I'll do that next time I work on it

Ok i was lazy i didn't want to jack the car up to get a better picture the wire simply attaches to one of the motor mount bolts then the other side attaches to the strut tower, i'm pretty sure they sell pre-made cables.

You can also make them really easy just go buy two feet of # 10 or 8 AWG Stranded Copper cable, if you have a soldering gun you can buy the connectors and solder them on (I think they are 3/8" eye) if not a crimping tool will do the job but needs to be done right, thinking about going to Pittsburgh Raceway Park tomorrow "Test and Tune Night" so i got to go clean up and put some &*$@ away

That car is going to be BAD A&& good luck

I hope that isnt 16 gauge wire for the main chassis ground... You need at least 8. I used 4.

Just right under the motor mount I was going to put another nut on the studs on each side and just put a self tapping screw in the frame

I would attach it to something more substantial than a thin sheet of metal. You can end up burning the metal and shorting the system if that sheet metal screw backs out a little.

You'd have to find a spot on the frame that you can bolt it to versus a sheet metal screw. Bare metal to eyelet contact and then paint it. But I personally wouldn't ever trust a sheet metal screw for a system ground.

Not to disagree but all of the factor ground on the car are attached using hex head sheet metal screw.

IF look at the ground on the core support right next to the negative battery post it mounted with a hex head sheet metal screw at least on a 98.

If you don't like that you can find a place you can drill through and nut and bolt the connection.

Just some ideas

Yes you can. This is probably the easiest way.

The MT82 is a remote shifter trans. Toploader means the shifter bolts right to the trans.

At least that can tell you if you're missing any vac fittings on it.
