    My neighbor has black & red over 30 ft each of this sgx 1/0 wire .....higher temps and over 1000 strands
    looks quality and he will have lots of left over for me and free :) plus he has all the crimping tools needed

    most advise on 2 awg for normal hook up

    Question ....is this 1/0 overkill for battery to starter and bat ground to block ???

    I see NO problem as long as you are not worried about Authenticity . It will help in cold weather . Years ago I used to use the thickest wire gauge I could possible find . Standard Products wire was always available In different lengths and Gauges . Just be care full of your routing

    I don't think there is such a thing as too much overkill . But that's my opinion .

    a little thicker but routing seems to be no problem ..seems flexible enough,
    plus I like the idea of running my own and crimping with proper tools and
    heat shrinking tube looks like fun :)

    I like the idea that you can get both RED and BLACK cables. The old Standard Product Cables were BLUE . I think they were called EKTON Cables ???
