Installation of the Parsco Heavy Duty Grounding Kit for a 1.8 Civic 8th Generation

Installation of the Parsco Heavy Duty Grounding Kit for a 1.8 Civic 8th Generation.
The first thing you need to do is familiarise yourself with the location of the current grounding cables. There are two which are labelled below.


Pictures of both cables can be seen below, starting with the cable located on the right and attached to the battery.


Then the cable located on the left side of the engine.


Letís get started! Remove the negative battery connector and push it down the side of the battery to hold it in place.


Next remove the other side of this cable from the car.


Letís move on to the left hand side of the engine and look at the second cable. Release this cable in the same fashion as before.


Paint does not conduct electricity so you need to remove this from the surfaces on the body for the left and right hand side cables. Below you see the surface after the paint was removed on the right hand side. Repeat for the left hand cable. This bare surface is obviously going to rust over time if left uncovered, so you should consider using dielectric grease or silver conductive paint.


This is where we start installing the Parsco kit! The left hand cable is a separate piece. In the kit there are two bolts. You need to use one of these in the body and reuse the other one from the engine. Attach the cable similar to as shown below. Then you can touch up any area around the bolt in the body to cover any scratches that are exposed.


In the kit the battery connector has two cables connected to it. The longer is to be attached to the engine. Letís look at the first picture again and note the circled area below. It appears to be circling the oil cap, but if you look behind you will see a bolt. The next image will show this bolt.


As you can see the oil cap and bolt are visible. This bolt is where you need to connect the cable. Note the route over the back of the engine.


This route continues around the engine and between the airbox and engine. Then it goes around the airbox and towards the battery.


Connect the short cable from the battery connector and then attach the battery connector to the battery. Make sure the battery connector is secure onto the battery, i.e. the bolt is tight.


Stand back and admire!
Note: When tightening bolts in the bodywork and engine do not over tighten as stripping threads or bolt heads is not fun! I.e. just tight and then a nip.

Sorry to bring up an old thread.... The original ground points, are they the same on an FN2?

I think the FN2 may have a metal intake manifold so you can use that if it is rather than going around the back of the engine.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but do you still have the images for this? I can't see them at all and am looking at installing a grounding kit. This guide would make that a lot easier with the pictures!
