Default Stifenning Caps

Hi I got a 25000mfd 35Volt DC capacitor originally purchased to use in my 2Kva UPS sitting in in my spares bag. Can I use it as a stiffening capacitor ??. What are the pros and cons of using it as mentioned?

hmm..no need for the above cap as it will not do much . Thick gauge wires will do better work.

25000 is also small. I have seen 1F+ caps used in car audio with little result.
