Default Anyone ever install a grounding or stabilizer kit?

Just wondering if anyone has installed a Voltage Stabilizer or Grounding Kit.

Some supposed features/Benefits:

Automotive voltage stabilizer
Increased horsepower
Increased torque
Better gas mileage
Improved throttle response
Quicker engine starts
Brighter lights
Reduced emissions
Reduced audio noise

Sounds like a gimmick to me. Do they also offer magnets for the fuel lines and metal plates to swirl the air going into your intake?

You can't overground one but the above mentioned claims are pretty outlandish unless you have a ground problem to begin with.

ok i was little off on want gauge wire i used, stock was 4ga for main power and ground, the engine to frame for the flat cable, so i made my main power and grounds 2 ga, all other i made 4 ga, all the wire i used is tinned copper marine wire, since i design wiring harness for boats for a living. i did this to my last truck which was a 98 Tacoma with 2.4l. All i noticed was all the lights where brighter, it started easier. never dyno'ed, gas mileage did improve, but i dont know if that was from me changing exhaust and removing the clutch fan for an electric fan, and better plugs(NGK) and wires. i got almost 400 miles on 13 gallon tank, mind you that was doing 75. on 89 octane.
