If you're building a custom distribution box, you should match the factory fuse sizes for everything. You shouldn't ever use a fuse between the starter and battery. The starter draws 120+ amps and would blow fuses instantly.

^what they said

Use 0 gauge and a 100-150 amp circuit breaker if you think it's necessary

There should absolutely be some kind of fuse/breaker shortly after the positive feed on the battery. You don't want a hot wire running the entire length of the car without a way to cut power. If not, just asking for a fire or to injure someone in case of an accident.

I don't remember the exact fuse I used, sold that car 11 years ago, but definitely use thicker 0 or 2 gauge wire.

+1 on welding wire, that's what I used and protected it with split loom, could even use expandable braided sleeve.

+2 on 1/0 Welding Wire. Then I ran my ground from the battery in the back of the trunk through the vent on Passenger side and bolted it to the frame of the car. By doing this my started does not drag at all. Do it right the first time.

check out http://www.sonicelectronix.com for a good distribution block and just run a 150amp circuit breaker between your battery and the distribution block, thats what i did works flawlessly
