    I had too many ring terminals stacked up under the head of the clamp bolts on the positive and negative battery terminals. Not only is this ugly, I have always been told that this can add additional resistance and cause noise to the circuits connected in this fashion.

    So I decides to clean things up and I made these terminal blocks.

    These are made from 1/4" thick Copper plate that I had laying around the shop. They will be tapped for #10 x 32 bolts to secure the ring terminals to the blocks.

    The Negative is on the Left and the battery post hole is drilled to 11/16".

    The Positive is on the Right and the battery post hole is drilled to 3/4".


    Here are photos of the finished product.


    The wiring that is terminated here is "REQUIRED" to be ran direct to the battery Positive and Negative by the manufacturers of the items.

    The wiring feeds:
    1- FAST XFI ECU (approx $1800)main power and grounds
    2- FAST XFI Switched Igniton relay feed
    3-FAST XFI O2 sensor and Injector feed
    4- Aeromotive Billet Fuel Pump Speed Controller (approx $350)
    5- Soon to be a FAST E6 Ignition and coil (approx $320)

    When the items cost that much you want to follow their recommendations to "try" to protect your investment.

    This also results in a far cleaner and neater installation then 5 wires under the head of each clamp bolt.
