Where should I run extra grounds on my 1987 GL-10 turbo sedan FT4WD? Should I go to the engine block or the chassis? Also, would it be better to get another ground wire entirely for the negative cable, or is there a secure way of attaching extra grounds with the factory cable?

I'm currently sifting through my harness removing stuff I no longer want. I'm impressed by how many times they ground the harness to the chassis. Grounds connect with other grounds and they all head for the chassis!

I think you'd be ok grounding to the chassis like the factory does. I also think you'd be ok connecting to any factory ground wire as they all ground to the chassis.

For what it's worth.
