I've been around on other forums, shopping for a 300zx hehe :), and I am seeing grounding kits helping responsiveness and power. Anything like that for celicas, most people seem to make the kit themselves for like $15. But what do you connect??

Thanks for any knowledge

Alternator, battery, and engine. There's a couple engine grounds depending on the engine. A lot of people upgrade the alternator and battery grounds if they're running a sizeable stereo setup though. Engine grounds for a 7th gen will more smooth out the VVTLi system though. As far as kits go, if there is one it wouldn't make much sense to get one when you can get a thicker gauge wire for cheaper and soulder the connections yourself.

Just get some cheap 4 gauge offcuts from a stereo store, some of those rings you crush onto them and just add extra cables from the battery to the chassis and engine and tranny. You will hardly notice much of a difference unless something is wrong.
