Sup guys. I just recently performed the big 3. I went

alternator positive to battery positive

engine block ground to battery negative 

car frame ground to battery negative

I’ve zip tied all my wires only to believe I was suppose to go from engine block ground to frame ground. So did I screw up and will it effect anything if I did?

Adding the engine to chassis is good in that it will add to the paths back to the battery/alternator, i usually do a big 4 in this way.

I will go alt+ to B+, alt case to neg battery terminal, chassis to battery negative, and finally alt case to chassis on the same ground point.

EDIT: As cars age the ground straps can corrode and break off, so it is a good idea to do that extra run.

That’s all that’s done to my Avalanche. You’re good.
