Earthing system for IS200


Recommended Posts

well going by the pics it just provides multiple earth pathways as for improving performance....... a roll of the dice says ... B******S and con springs to mind, im very sceptical about things like this unless i see it actually working first hand.

Hi,

The purpose of the Earthing System is to improves engines torque output over the entire RPM. I am having the T.M. Work Earthing system on IS200. For more info on this system, you go to www.takakaira.co.jp.

where did u get this stuff installed? please share your experience on the before and after effect of this product. :)

Extracted from T.M. Works in the website provided by dboey:

"PEC (Power Earth Cable) improves an engine's torque output over the entire RPM range. PEC can be used for all motor sports application.

PEC self adjust to provide maximum engine efficiency & performance. The highest electrical load considered in today's vehicle is the vehicle battery.

If a vehicle body is grounded 5 times than in its stock grounding condition or more, the vehicle's headlamp brightness output inreases dramatically.

With PEC, it is possible to connect the ground signal directly to the section sensor attached to a vehicle's body. This is turn will eliminate any erroneous operation of a vehicle's ECU, and will result in a smoother running engine.

Every model of the grounding line in the Powered Earth Cable (PEC) is manufactured to high quality standards using the electrical characteristic of 97% super high density pure copper. Reliability & durability of each PEC model is guaranteed in its superior water proof & high heat resistance external cable sleeve construction. The PEC is manufactured to strict European cabling standards at 0.007 MOhms per 1 km of cable length. With high quality Japanese cable manufacturing process & standards, the Made in Japan PEC product is unparalleled in quality & reliability when compared to other foreign makes. "

heh....i still could not understand how grounding could improve engine performance (better torque).

any taker? :)

Sounds like they're talking about reducing voltage drop by having more, better quality, earthing cables.

Thing is, I can't see that the load drawn by the ECU is great enough to suffer any drop.

Can't see it making any difference at all, let alone a noticeable one.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
