My 1979 and 1980 mk2 escorts had voltage stabilisers.....and they were earthed, although I had starting problems sometimes and fitted a spare earth wire to the chassis for about £1.

Are they made by Spoon/Fork/Moogen per chance? :D

Waste of money, if the wiring in your car is as Honda intended, or to the same standard then there should be absolutely no need for these.

Ive had them on 2 of my cars and i have to say i was very impressed by them especially on my 200sx.
The earthing kit doesnt really do much but the stabilizer is good.
Basically the way its works i its stores pwoer in the box.
When you release the throttle and plant it again sometimes it takes a while to respond because you get a voltage drop and the stabilizer elimiinates it.
It made a really big difference on my 200sx and gave me 3 bhp on my previous civic

Edit:

obviously theres a lot better stuff out there but i wouldnt say they were a complete waste of time

3bhp? I'd like to see a rolling road printout and proof of that TBH.

tbh if you are having problems with voltage drop and all the electrics are oem then doing TB3 is probably the best thing to do. Thats upgrading engine earth, alt to battery and battery earth
