I know what goes where because it's marked but there's some extra stuff. A plastic box?

Installed! Worst Marine was very helpful in selecting the right wire and getting it crimped for me. I crimped one end, went home and fitted it then I went back and cut and crimped the other end because they had the right tools for a cable this thick and I don't. According to the laws of physics as displayed in their handy little chart I was supposed to use 4AWG wire for a 100A alternator of the length is 5 feet. Then I installed these woven heat sleeves where the wire lays on top of the engine and at the tail end where it connects to the starter (right next to my gigantic turbo). I still have to tidy up the harness in the morning but It's essentially done and I'm very happy with it.
