Big 3 Grounding Kit - Will it blow out the battery?
I'm very much interested in getting a grounding kit for my Gen 5, but I've been a little skepticle. I've been reading about the big 3 as far as grounding, and I've noticed that you're supposed to connect the positive post of the alternator to the positive post of the battery. I would imagine that this is a highly unstable combination and would blow out the battery. Now, I'm not very interested in getting battery acid all over me from an exploded battery... so... can anyone explain how and why this is safe? And whether or not there's a chance that I'll blow out my battery?
Also, I've been told that there's a certain order in which you have to remove and re-attach the negative and positive battery connectors in order to avoid the battery blowing up in your face. Is this true?

Glaring blue HID bulbs are NOT classy, and don't make your car look nice, no matter what that kid in the Civic told you.
