I've seen in several pictures where someone has attached a cable to their alternator directly from the battery. In stock form my alt. cable comes from the main fuse, then to the battery. Which is best?

good to know. I might have to modify a new fuse thingy, mine's all cracked to hell, and kinda bends in half.

I had some leftover 4 awg wire from doing battery cables, and I used that. The cable is so thick that it had trouble fitting, and when I bolted the fuse block down it cracked at the middle. All the fuses are held in place, so it works for now.
