Most don't tax the alt to it's limit, especially in stock vehicles. The 175 fuse that ford uses is mainly for fault protection, I believe, not constant full load carrying ability. Short runs also raise a cables current carrying ability, most modified cars have relocated (trunk mount) batteries. There are alot of factors involved. Fire and its potential scares me, so I always lean toward the safer side or overkill when it comes to protecting against it. Do what you like.
