Or inside the internal threads on the negative cable connection to transmission.

What is the resistance from battery negative terminal to transmission, adjacent to battery negative cable bolt...not to the bolt, but next to the bolt...the nearest bare metal surface?

Should not be much more than 0.1 ohm.

And also good advice from mwXL 2006 regarding cable size. 4 gauge is best for even a stock starter and minimum for 1400 watts (116 amps at 12.0 volts, 133 amps at 10.5 volts).
