Ok. So this is what I think I'm going to do.
2 Gauge wire with a 250 AMP fuse to a cut off switch. Then from the switch I'll run a 2 gauge wire to the starter and a seperate wire as well from the switch to the alternator with a 100 AMP fuse. (I'm doing this because I've heard it's better to run a seperate wire and since I'm doing this, I figure I might as well do it the best way the first time.)

But what size wire do I use to run to the alternator? It doesn't have to be any where near a 2 gauge for goodness sake, right??

Also whats the highest compression ratio I can have before I cant use my stock starter?

Thanks guys!
