    I don't know about earthing kits but I just buy the 4-gauge grounds from any auto store. All coming from the battery:
    take one to intake manifold (which also goes to chasis after), take one ground to chasis next to battery, take another to chasis next to ecu (where ecu ground connects chasis) and the one you don't have to bother with goes to the starter. Starts up almost instantly.

    I would put one onto the alternator as well.

    +1. I made my own with gold connectors for cheap using 4awg audio wire.

    I ran one on my civic and we tested it with a volt meter. Only showed a .1 drop when we turned on the a/c and 2 volt drop without it. I had it hooked up to the starter and yes it starts up faster and cleaner. Alternator makes the most difference, another to the throttle body and one to the valve cover!
