    Where is the main engine to body ground?

    I am almosted finished with the engine install on my 99 SLS. I have run into a couple snags though.

    I need to know the factory points where the ground strap goes from the engine to the body/chassis.

    I know that I could bolt it anywhere, but I would like to keep it as close to OEM as possible.

    I also need hep finding a replacement heater/coolant tube, here is a link to that thread:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The ground cable on the 98 to 04 is in the same location.
    It runs from the upper alternator bolt to the frame near the Under Hood Fuse Box
