Battery to engine ground

I was just curious where exactly the grounds from the negative post on the battery go I know one goes to the body under the air box but what about the other one ? I'm assuming the engine block but it's kind of to follow .

I can share a great picture and description for that cable on a 2004 Duratec engine.... but do not have the same for your model car. Sorry.

1 - try again to follow the cables.

2 - someone else might come along and post a helpful reply.

3 - search for "big 3" which has many helpful threads about that/those type cables n wires.

-Cheers!
