The stock wire in my 2000 camaro went directly from the alternator to the battery, so of course that's how i ran the upgraded wire.

I always leave all the factory wires, then just add a wire from the alt to the battery, and a new ground from alt to battery.  In my truck i have on the side posts all the factory  positive and negitive wires, then on the top (+) post i have my alt wire run with 0 awg, and my power wire to the amps . And i have a 0 awg groung to body, and 0 awg ground to alt both to the top post as whell.   Ground resistance is believe it or not 0 ohm in my engine compartment Power from Alternator - Page 2 -- posted image.

you did not mention fuses.  the OEM wiring has a fusible link.  If you upgrade the wiring, you must fuse it accordingly.  Be sure to locate your fuses propely (as close to the power source as possible)

I thought it was impossible to get 0 ohms.  Only real close to it. 
Hurry get me a steel hanger, elec tape, zip ties, a monkey and a snorgle. trust me i've ran wires with less

its reading .002, which is the same reading i get when i touch the 2 test leads together on my dmm, i couldn't believe it either, but meh, im not complaining.  IM shure the resistance is much higher in the back, i haven't tested there yet since i have no equipment in rite now.

Heres how I did mine- 0ga from alt to a 0ga T-block where I split  to amp fuse and to battery with 0ga . Then I ran a 4ga to my factory power block. 0ga for grounds and to the back.  I get no interference/noise with this setup but I also use high quality RCA's and ran them down one side of car and power wires down the other.

boom, boom, boom boom....

Thanks for the pic, it's belivable now.  The only reason why i have my setup so ghetto rig is because, im 17 with a car note, insurance bill, phone bill, computer bill, and gas bill.  It gets hard with a expensive hobby like this. So i try to make do with what i got.  Thanks for all your help guys.
