Wiring New Alternator (Quick question)

HI All, switching to a one wire alternator 100amp.

1) Is it possible to run the wire from the alternator to the positive post on the started rather than directly to the battery. Seems that that would give a charging path (I have the Battery in the trunk and woudl like to avoid the hassle of running a wire all the way back if possible).

2) Is there anthing else I need to do to the electrical system with a 100 amp alternator. or is it really as easy as hooking up one wire (6 Guage)?
