    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".

    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.
