Ground question

Just did the intake cowl, dont care about cold air intake stuff, so dont lecture me on that, did it for a snorkel for summer, going bake into engine bay for winter...

anyways i drilled through fire wall and they was a ground cable where i drilled, can move that ground to my battery, cant really find a better place to ground it too. thanks guys.

Your best bet would be to drill another hole in the firewall somewhere nearby and screw it into that. Almost all the ground points are through the body, and that's important for ignition noise suppression. If you go directly to the battery, you will probably start hearing your spark plugs through the radio. Worst case, though unlikely, would be that the noise interferes with the operation of the engine computer.

Where does that gound go to? If it is the one for the hood then don't worry about it unless you really need that light. If something different I agree with JEK3
