Extra wire on a Alternator


I'm starting to wire my 37 Dodge. I have a Kwik wire kit. I will be using a 105 amp alternator and the Kwick wire instructions say I need to run a second wire 4 gauge wire from the alt. to the starter. Is the 4 gauge a little over kill? Could I use a 10 gauge wire? New cars use 10 gauge for their high amp alternators.

Any help would be appreciated
