2012 Focus TB Ground

As most of you know about the throttle body ground mod that is done the 10-11 foci with electronic throttle control. We I got extremely tired of the new foci's hesitation upon opening the throttle. So I ran a 4 gauge amp wire from one of the throttle body bolts to the new jump start post ford installed on the driverside of the bay near the firewall. I test drove it when it was cold and still noticed a small bit of hesitation but was very noticeably less. My wife drove it the following day and she is pleased with difference, said it doesn't feel like it falls on its face when you try to go.

New to the focus world, do you have a link to the 10-11 focus thread about this? And maybe a photo or two of yours?

This topic is a can of worms.

Edit - I've done it, but I don't confess it. Too much controversy.
