GM used 2g welding cable for the ground cable in the 2008-2014 Cadillac CTS. It's printed right on it "2 gauge Prestoflex Welding cable 600v"

4 gauge charge wire will likely be overkill.

We offer a 140-190 amp charge wire setup that utilizes a 6 gauge charge wire and included the Midi fuse and everything you need: https://www.painlessperformance.com/wc/30700

We also offer a few 1 gauge high quality battery cable kits: https://www.painlessperformance.com/wc/p.php?s=caac
