    sweet man good to hear. my car doesnt seem to have the power it should but it would be highly noticable if one of the wires were shot eh?

    This might sound stupid or you may already know this trick..but at night time pop the hood while car is running and pull out the light bulb. now that you got it dark in there. take a bottle of water with a spray nozzle to a fine mist and strat spraying..if there is any cracks in any wire ..you will see little static sparks ,,if its a big one youll see bigger sparks etc..that has worked for me many times.
