Well its time to rewire the car in prep for the 200 amp alt and everything else I'm doin.... but I have one question... should I go the extra $3 a foot and do a 0/1 gauge or just rewire with 2 gauge? Any input would be great.

if you do that...i think you should take a look at that stock fuse that is in the disto box. i think its only rated at 175 amps. what are you going to rewire? i rewired the starter with 4 gauge, and everything else from the alt with 4 gauge. did 4 gauge grounds also. 0 gauge would be waaaayy to big to fit in some spots, like running to the starter. its too big and bulky for for going from alt to battery, and alt to dist box. i used stinger HPM wire, and it is awesome stuff to use if you do go the 0 gauge route. pretty cheap too.

so 2 gauge should be good for all the electrical loading I'm planning on......
6 amped speakers
2 amped 10" subs
headlights
foglights
electrical fan
everything else in the car?
