i always heard to ground the wire on the battery to the rear frame portion. then attach the original battery ground to the front frame. however when you ran your power wire did you by any chance loosen the bolt on the side of the fuse box? when doing a motor swap in my buddies car he left that bolt lose and it would sputter and die sometimes and the radio would randomly cut out, and that was the cause.

4gauge sounds too small to me. did you go check the wire at the fuse box and make sure that nut is on tight?
