IF the starter current goes thru the shunt then I agree with many who
say the new cable needs to be as large as the original.
If we're talking about house batteries then I think the cable pictured in post 16
is likely OK as is.
A person could go through the approach of tying them both together but not likely. The monitoring is generally the house batteries but it is possible the engine current will go through the shunt if you were to use the starter booster switch due to a low engine battery.
