Battery Terminals in GTA???

I over tightened the stock terminal clamp on my Ford Mustang and it broke.

So I need to replace it.

Problem is I think the stock battery cable on the 2002 Mustang is 2 4 gauge wires.

and then I have my 4 gauge for my stereo.

What shop in the GTA is most likely to carry a battery terminal that can handle that many 4 gauge wires??

I can't even seem to find a battery terminal online with 3 4 gauge inputs.

Help??

I was just looking myself. Tried 2 audio stores in Newmarket, Canadian Tire, NAPA, the other place, Autozone maybe?, and FutureShop.

Canadian Tire had a surprising amount of audio related stuff. Like 2 or 3 endcaps worth, PLUS an entire battery terminal display.

Long story short, I bought enough parts to double up my posts (no side terminals) and am going to drill & tap myself. Set screws are also very cheap.

Online you can find STINGER and KNUKONCEPTZ (spelling may be off).

They both have exactly what you need.

I'm going to have to call up every shop close to me and start asking questions :P

If I can't find one that has 3-4 gauge.

Do you think 2-4 gauge will fit in 1-0 gauge output??

You could MAKE it fit, but its not really designed for it. Double fold the end you stripped the sheathing from to increase its size so the compression fitting will grab it.

Not the best way, but if you are stuck It'll work.
