Hyper Voltage System GT and flickering issue

We know all of us that a Ground Wiring Kit just helps on the flickering issue, but my question to whom has already installed the Hyper Voltage System GT is "if it permanently solves the flickering issue?".

I honestly don't think the hyper voltage kit is actually worth it. Maybe it'll resolve the issue of flickering but honestly its like 200 dollars. You could buy a custom tuner for 350 and have the idle raised to 1000 and that'll take care of the flicker and it'll give you more power.

If you drive an SVTf without an aftermarket tune, chances are quite high that if you barely tap the throttle while sitting parked, your headlights and gauge lights will flicker a bit...

Try it out at night, and you will probably notice the ever-so-slight flickering...honestly, it was never that big of an issue with me. I got used to it the week after buying my SVTf.

Turn your heater on full blast, and crank up the stereo while sitting at idle.
That'll get em to start flickering too.

I must agree with a few of the others though, it's never been much of a problem whatsoever on my car.
I have to look pretty hard to see the flicker.

Make your own ground wires or get the cheapy ones off of Ebay (work just as well, and you can get a color to match your car).
