Charging system... All about the Amps

So after reading this month's article on correcting known charging system issues, I have discovered that I have a few in my 71 Camaro!
Of course, I added a ton of nice electrical components over the last year, like:
Dual Electric Fans
FiTech Go EFI
FiTech Fuel Commander Sump Pump
& a Dakota Digital Dash Kit

Nothing too uncommon, but I found a pretty undersized wire from the alternator. The article suggests increasing the gauge of the charging wire to 6 if possible, my question:

Can I connect that wire directly to the battery?
