What is it?
Hyper Ground System is a new generation tuning system designed to provide a direct, low-resistance ground path from engine components to the battery. It allows the entire electrical system to perform at greater efficiency, which can result in:
- increased hp
- increased torque
- improved fuel efficiency
- stabilized idle
- brighter lights
- quicker engine starts
- reduced emissions
- reduced audio noise
How does it work?
In any electrical system, electric current flows from the positive terminal to the electrical components, and back to the battery through the negative terminal. However, the way that the factory (stock) grounds are set-up, the electrons must travel through the steel and/or aluminum components in the car to complete the circuit, which creates much electrical resistance (steel/aluminum are not the best materials for electrical conductivity). This resistance disturbs the flow of electricity to a degree that electrical components such as ECU, lights, spark plugs. etc, cannot perform at maximum efficiency. In order to get the highest performance out of any automobile, it is necessary to achieve an efficient flow of electricity with the least resistance along its electrical circuit. By providing a direct ground path using highly conductive 99.99% pure copper, this electrical resistance is reduced greatly (as much as 10 times!), resulting in an ultra-low resistance ground path. In short, Hyper Ground System affects the electrical system similar to how a high performance intake and exhaust system affects the mechanical system, by scavenging power which would otherwise be lost due to system inefficiencies.
What makes it so special?
Sun Auto produces the Hyper Ground System to an exacting level of utmost quality. The cables are made to our proprietary design, constructed using thick-gauge 99.99% copper, with 1,477 strands per cable. Since the electrons only travel on the outside of the strands, many strands are necessary to maximize the electron flow. The cables utilize multi-layered shielding, which is specially blended to provide minimum electron leakage as well as to withstand engine room temperatures and protect against discoloration. Terminals are available with gold-plating, for better electrical conductivity and protection against corrosion. The Hyper Ground System also uses a patented “daisy-chain” method to connect directly from the cylinder head and other points under the hood to the battery, to provide an ultra-low resistance ground path. The kit comes in 3 universal sizes to fit any type of vehicle, and is effective for use in anything from bone-stock to fully modified vehicles. Aside from the universal kits (5 cables in different lengths), Sun Auto offers a lineup of car-specific kits, which are tailor made to fit a specific vehicle.
What will fit my car?
Hyper Ground System will fit virtually any vehicle:
Universal S-Type: for most 4 cylinder and V6 vehicles
Universal M-type: for most inline 6, V8 and larger vehicles
Universal L-type: for most cars with front engine/rear battery configuration
Optional wires in varying lengths are also available to supplement the universal kits and/or for custom applications.
How much horsepower/torque will I gain with Hyper Ground System
As with any product, the amount of benefit gained will vary between applications. The average gain seems to be between 3-6 horsepower. Hyper Ground System is not a product that is used to boost your vehicle's power; it is designed to increase efficiency in the electrical system to help your vehicle operate at its full potential. A good example would be to examine the effect of changing the intake and/or exhaust system of your vehicle. By allowing the car to "breathe" easier by installing a higher flowing exhaust and/or intake system, horsepower which is otherwise lost to system inefficiencies is restored. Similarly, Hyper Ground System affects your electrical system in the same manner. So, how inefficiently your factory electrical system is operating in its current condition will determine how much power can be restored by installing Hyper Ground System.
