where should i put my Engine Ground


I'm doing the jeep hammer battery to starter, alternator upgrade.

that write up does not state where i should put an engine to frame Ground or if i need one.

Should i go off the new starter ground to the frame? or just off some bolt on the motor to the frame?

Should i ground the alloy heads also? maybe a 10 gauge from my grounding post to the first head and daisy chain to the second head?

The stock one on mine is a heavy mesh strap that goes from one side of the drivers side engine mount to the other. The engine to body one is a strap from a head bolt to the firewall. Mesh straps are used due to the vibration and movement. Copper cables can work harden over time from the engine movement and fray apart.
