I am finally getting ready to wire my car with my MoTec M130, MoTec E888, ECUMaster Isolator & AIM PDM's. My question is what size wire do I need to use to properly accommodate the CAN Bus.

While I'm asking about the CAN Bus and its wiring, I may as well ask how many TPI I should go with, 1 TPI or 2 TPI?

Thank you for the help!
