    I use OFC for anything with bends. Welding cable for long runs.

    Either will be fine... Welding cable will hold up in the engine bay better probably though...

    welding cable is well suited for physical "severe service"

    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    I use weld and knu. TriStar welding cable is flexable and priced a little under knu koll flex. And you can pick any color you want and they will print anything on the wire you want.
