    How many feet of power cable did you use for your big 3 upgrade??

    I am planning to do the Big 3 upgrade and i am not quite sure how many feet i need since i havent measured the stock cables but meanwhile i am making this thread to have an idea of how much i will need. I will be doing a BIG 3 upgrade on a 2001 chevy blazer (SUV) 4.3L V6 so i would appriciate it if you let me know how many feet you used and what type of car it was. I will be using the 1/0awg power cable, unsure what brand. It will be nice to know what to stay away from THNX.

    I used some 1/0 gauge xscorpion wire the other day. It was a pita to crimp because it was to small for 1/0 connectors. so don't get that

    7ft, 96 lumina. Get what ever wire that has at least the capability of what your amps and car would draw at the same time to be safe.
