Default gauge size of grounding wires

i recently replaced my ground wire from the battery to the bolt on
top of the starter with 2ga wire from streetwires. im just wondering if that is too big ( i know its overkill) or if you could get any negative effects with using a too large gauge of wire for grounding. Thanks

I cant imagine that a larger than stock wire can cause any problems.
As long as the terminals are crimped on strong, you shouldnt have any problems.

i figured it would help more than cause any problems, just wanted another opinion on the matter. And i used a good hammer type wire crimper on those hefty ring terminals. turned out great.
