    A lot of people are going to disagree, but Ohio Generator told me use as big as I want but only use 4 awg for the alt to batt pos because anything bigger would not fit properly on the alt post and would just overheat. They said leave the existing wire intact and do NOT fuse it. I've been debating this in other threads but since I had the electrical 100% professionally done and the fact that they have been building alternators for 30 years for this purpose... I listened to them.

    You can jumper it. But you'll be running off the battery, so the distance you travel may be limited.

    Not usually but if it does, it'll be something catastrophic.

    Add on to your existing wiring and replace it with 0 gauge. Just run some wire loom over it. The engine bay gets pretty toasty. And make sure it clears everything hot, e.g. exhaust manifold, valve covers etc.

    Since your car's fairly new, just add the 0 gauge power cable to your alternator. Leave your stock wiring in place and add onto it. Unless you're going to keep the car for awhile. Then by all means, replace everything.
    But either way, electricity will find the path with least resistance. So even if you add a bigger power cable and the stock wiring's still in place. The current will flow through 0 gauge cable. Just by being easier to go through. Also if you disconnect everything some systems might malfunction.
