    When I did mine it was the yellow wire going to the Air flow sensor I earthed. I spliced the wire and made a new earth going to the one of the screw things that hold the rocker cover thing on.

    the illusive earth mod is only for early Z20LET models


    however some of the NA models respond well supposedly to the AFM earth mod as outlined above - not sure which models this affected though

    If you do it though, u may wish to upgrade that daft crappy engine earth strap that attaches to the slam - also upgrade all the other earths such as battery to body, alternator to batt, etc etc
