My alternator wires got fried by the exhaust pipe.. My '94 has a 2006 engine.. and apparently the wires were routed incorrectly.. Obviously ,I need to replace them.. What gauge are they?... 16, 18 ?.. help..

I'm pretty sure they are 18 gauge, but jumping up a size or two should be beneficial to the performance of the stator as there will be less resistance with the larger wire and therefore slightly less heat buildup.

...go 16....I did....my stocks melted....heavier will only help it....I think the stocks are 18 or even 20....wayyyyy too thin....

I rerouted all of my wires after I degoated.....stupid routing they had for stock....
