I've been putting in alot of time in the garage trying to tuck and shave my bay along with installing megasquirt. My only question about the whole thing is, how am I to ground the million black wires? I've read NOT to ground them all in the same spot. I've also read NOT to solder them into a bigger wire and put it in a single location. But I HAVE heard that I should ground everything to my block. I'm currently wiring the injectors. Where do I ground this bundle of 6 black wires? Tha k you very much for your response.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place or already posted. Still trying to figure out forums.

I put them on a thicker gauge spade crimp and solder them, than ground on head/block/battery > If your doing on the head or block its good to have 2-3 grounding points from battery

This is your bible, http://www.megamanual.com/mtabcon.htm

Can you post links to where it recommends not to ground to the same spot?

My rule of thumb was if a wire has anything to do with MS then ground it to the same spot, the system is running perfectly.

Split mine up into 2 separate spade connectors. I believe 3 in each connector.  Then both spades grounded to one of the starter bolts.

I find their literature hard to understand.  Your not alone.

I prefer grounding to the head or block far away from starter or coils ( If COP or CNP ) . Starter is a high EMI transmitter. I don't like any grounds near it. I've also read that you can get eddy currents near the starter ground when cranking. Those can induce impedance in the ground wires.
