Kinda liike a pipeline...compressor pushes "X" gallons per minute through say a 24" line. You change the line to a 36", the compressor is still pushing "X" gallons per minute.

As long as you have good grounds and a strong battery, that is all you need..
But, with a larger pipe diameter you reduce flow restriction, the point that you stop is when you have to compare cost vs flow potential. A similar comparison id pushing the same volume through a garden hose compared to a fire hose.

Anyhow, with pushing close to 100A in audio alone, would upgrading the vehicle's power cables be something I should do, or only if I notice some dimming issues.

Are they actually claiming that a Big three upgrade will give you more HP and Torque? Wow... Just wow.
Lol, I was ignoring the gains in HP and MPG, I called BS the minute I saw that. But the guys that have done this upgrade have claimed faster start ups on stroked motors, less dimming of lights, and a more constant bass note. And as a side not, these guys that are reviewing aren't newbies, so i do kinda believe them.
