It was a work out to slide the wires through. The hardest part is getting past the 45 degree angle, so sometimes it best to no...

Re: Best Phase Wire Connectors & MXUS 3kw stock wires

XT90's will only be able to handle up to a certain gauge, but there are 5.5mm bullet connectors and 6mm and 6.5mm bullet connectors, but there is also Powerpole SB connectors that probably wont suit your needs as they are huge...
