do you plan to go no further than 40A on 240VAC?? If not, your choice of
8AWG should be fine for 100" between current and load. Altho....
considering the fact that most people who do coils ALWAYS seem to want
to upgrade the load ( bigger coil, more power)...think about future
applications.... I would go with the 6 or even a 4 THHN stranded COPPER
( yes its pricey now) but replacing the 8AWG later with a 4AWG is even
more costly.... how do I know?? cause I did it.... went from an 8 to a
4 to cover the current requirements the piggie needed....
