Need to be on the engine. An EXTRA to the body is never a bad idea.

Thanks cruiser54.

Is there another reason apart from the fact that it's the 'proper' way to do it?
I'd think that the engine and body are definitely connected to each other (electrially as well), so it shouldn't really matter where you ground it... I'll be happy to hear your thoughts!

cheers!

Yeah there is. The engine and body are isolated via rubber mounts. And, even that crappy strap from the engine to chassis can cause issues. This is based on fact, experience, not book learning.
