Big three question....

I'm doing the big three today and was wondering if it mattered if the current connections stay in place instea of removing them. Would it cause an issue to haw two sets of wires?

It's recommended that you add as opposed to replace...simple reason..more conductor!

now, I'm not sure if I did this right or not but I did

1. positive from battery to positive to alternator
2. engine block to frame
3. battery negative to frame.

Is this right?

The only difference Between that step by step is he did engine block to battery negative, then battery negative to engine chassis. I did it engine block to chassis and battery negative to chassis. Would that make any difference?

lil more resistance, other wise no. Still good so long as the connections are solid.

I would say that it will make a difference.. The better your Grounds the better current you will get.... I do believe that power flows from NEG to POS.. I have added extra grounds to my system and everytime I do I go up at least 0.1 of a Volt
