I ran the ground to the stock grounds on the engine near the CAS and FP regulator. You can never have too good of a ground connection.

I grounded them to one of the stock ecu mounting bolts. Also, what gauge wire did you use for your ground? If you connect all of them together in the DB37 (I did) you need to make sure you have a low enough gauge wire to support all those grounds without noise interference.

10-12 ga would be ideal... I wouldn't use anything higher than 14.

I always run the grounds to the battery to avoid spike into the inputs, but as long as there is less than 0.3 ohms in your connection, you are okay.
