Well I just got my Teck Grounding Kit (customised for RHD) and installed it tonight. Some of the grounding points were a b***h to get to, but i eventually got them all done. Having just got back from a 10 min drive, I can honestly say that the lag between shifts is greatly reduced. I couldnt even feel the 1-2 shift! :eek: This was the roughest shift before I put the kit on. The other shifts are also much smoother

Havent noticed fuel savings yet :p or faster start up

But the smoother shifting is definitely noticeable. I cant explain why, and i doubt it is all psychological when so many others have reported the same thing. Plus, I only have about 10,000k's so the effect will probably be present for cars with greater miles too.

Pros: faster shifting, purchased for special xmas price
Cons: installation for some of the points was really hard to access

For anyone else who has a RHD car here are the details of the kit:
16.25” between points 2 and 7
12.5” between points 3 and 4
34.5” between points 3 and 5
36” between points 3 and 9
8.5” between points 5 and 6
14.5” between points 5 and 7
14” between points 6 and 8

So basically the only changes are increased length for the cable between points 3 and 9 (in bold above) and no need for the cable between 1 and 9.

PS: Actually 36" may be a little too long. 34" or 35" should suffice fine.

Thanks Paul

Hi Bazza
Recognise you from UK LOC
Anyways, email Paul for the installation guide to confirm all the points are there
Im pretty sure point 9 will not be there, and not too sure about the engine mounting points since the 200 has a different engine
