Reducing electrical resistance doesn't actually make power, it saves it. You
probably wouldn't see much of a gain on a new car, but older cars with poor
grounding are robbing you of power. This is also true when you make
extensive modifications, such as adding a stereo system. I've read a bit
about it, but I'll have to run a search to find you a more definitive study.
