Question Grounding Points

I want to make a grounding kit and was wondering where the stock grounding point are on a 6th Gen?

I know there is one on the passenger side next to the stock intake box and one on top of the tranny, where else should I ground?

Where is a spot to ground the block and intake manifold?

Right now I have one wire running from the neg battery terminal to the firewall and from the tranny to the chasis.

Word. Let's get some pics up of the locations and other peoples set ups.
I'm sick of my lights dimming and my head unit pulsating.

If you want you can get like black wires or you can get black wire loom to cover it up, looks nice without red or blue all over your engine bay like spaghetti lol.
