    Negative Battery Cable Question

    Hey guys. Got a new negative battery cable for my 92 2.4 MM. There is only one problem. The original goes from the negative post to the engine, which makes sense. What I am concerned about is this:



    From this pic you can see where it connects to the engine (blue square) but it also is connected to the frame and the wheel well. The new cable doesn't have places to mount this way, which I was told will work by they people at Advance isn't needed. So I figured I would ask yall about it before I hooked the new cable up and turned the car on.

    If you have other grounds from the engine to the chassis and body, it will work, but professionally, I don't leave grounds missing like that. You can run heavy gauge leads to your body and chassis like the factory cable has. I wouldn't just run one lead to the block without adding more grounds.
