The trouble with the wire between the relays and the SCR are that you don't want them in either tension or compression. In the longer run that will give you trouble. I used #4 on mine which is for the 150 AMP relays. Getting the bends right is the key. It takes some space.

I believe that Rollin changed the outbound wires from the transformer to coming out of the side instead of the top. They would run somewhat cooler that way if you can do it. Do put the fan on the transformer. While it doesn't need it so much, it makes the big cables to the element banks a lot happier to be cooled.
