NSS for TH400, original 4 spd

I have a 1968 coupe original 4 spd that now has a TH400, with no neutral safety switch. I have purchased the NSS for my Hurst Quarterstick shifter. I'm looking for advise on how to wire it. I'm thinking about running the purple 12g wire from the ign switch to the starter through it. However, Hurst recommends a 16g wire to the NSS. Will I send too much current through the switch wiring it this way? Any other suggestions?

Who made the shifter and NSS? Why would you go against their recommendations? 16 gauge is fine. Here's some reading material

The shifter and NSS are both Hurst. My concern is going larger then Hursts recommendation. My car never came with stock wiring for a NSS because it was a manual. Therefore, the existing wiring to tap in to to interrupt the ign switch to starter is 12g (unless someone knows a better way). I just wanted to make sure the switch can handle the load. I appreciate the link.

If the switch wasn't able to handle the load, Hurst wouldn't be selling that switch. They would be selling you a different switch. Use whatever size wire you're comfortable with.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

Thanks for the inputs. I guess I'm over thinking it. Thanks for the validation. Electrical isn't my specialty, better to ask then to wish I had.
