    Good info, it is surprising how this is overlooked so often.

    I don't mind a threadjack if it is to add any good info.

    With all the grounding issues V1's have had, we should not be overlooking anything

    It is a disease the C5's have as well.

    Can you be specific on the grounding issues? If you have some plans to run a bigger ground or 'big 3' I'm all ears.

    Revisited the wire:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...glink121836-20

    Read the "fine print".

    Copper clad aluminum.

    No wonder it is high flex.

    Ordered solid copper at a 30% difference (up charge) in price.

    I am doing this ONCE and that is it.

    This is what I have, but I won't be installing it until I pull the motor:

    30' Red and Black Royal Excelene 1/0 AWG cable

    1/0 AWG Tinned Copper Cable Lugs

    How does that compare to wrapped headers with the typical DEI paint treatment?

    The reason I got them Hot Jet Coated was when I went to the exhaust shop the owner just about booted me in the ass for wrapping them, and said so.

    Then he showed me the error of my ways.

    A set of headers that had been wrapped and were rotted through because they got brittle from the heat and whatever moisture gets trapped (condensation) even with stainless headers (such as the B&B).

    I opted for the high temp coating as I run an S/C.

    They look like ass. Send them to me, I'll recycle them for you.
