question

ok this might be a stupid question . but im going to ask anyway.. i have a
2001 mustang , and i want to change the battery cable and upgrade the
battery terminal..i see that on the positive side. there are 2 cable
connected to the terminal.. 1 from the fuse block and one is from somewhere
under the engine . i have no idea.. any way just wondering can i move the
cable from under the engine directly to the fuse block.. because im using a
new battery terminal call "centerpin" .. and it only fit one cable.. just
wondering if anybody out there understand what im talking about. and does
that setup work..

That's a REALLY BIG cable, right?

No offense, but if you're not capable of crawling under that car to see
where that cable goes, you got no business dickin' around with the
electrical setup.

I assume that if I tell you that cable carries WAY more amps than your
sound system, you'll understand the need for proper connections.

Just to 'make nice', I did a search on that terminal and came up with
this:
http://www.cardomain.com/item/STISCPT101

Heh.. not available.. wonder what THAT means?

Hint: USUALLY means the mfr has had more complaints than the product is
worth!

IN OTHER WORDS... just spend your money on a cold air intake or
"tornado" or more neon.

Assume you already have some...

Gotta go now, and take my Midol...
;)

OMG! BYM "makes nice". <falls over> Anyway, no you can get
terminals like that at www.partsexpress.com and at
www.mcmelectronics.com and pretty good prices. I have a similar one on
my Mustang because I used some really good wire and reran to my Alt and
to the electric fan and then to my stereo amps.
