Hi output alternator install

I purchased a one wire World Power Systems 160A alternator and would like to install it on my '91 Camaro. It has the 3 wire connecter, two prong receptical covered on the top of the unit. It is my understanding this 2 prong connector only provides the idiot light indication and not the voltage reading on the gauge. Is this accurate? I also understand I need to upgrade the feed wire from the alternator to the battery to an 8 gage or maybe a 6 gage with the 160A output.
Any info would be appreciated.

actually the bigger wire to that connector goes to battery as well as the charging post wire on the back of the alt

use same guage as the existing wires

14 or 12 guage

the smallest wire is to the guage or light
