Perhaps, but surge implies short duty cycle. Also Resistance is directly proportional to length and inversely proportional to cross section. A short length should allow for smaller gauges. Six feet (a conservative length from the battery
to the inverter) of 6 AWG wire has a resistance of about 0.0024 ohms. At 167 A. a voltage drop of 0.4 V. would occur for a very short time (milliseconds I would guess). Unless I have made an error, I don't see why you would need anything larger. What am I missing? Raz
