number six wire is good for sixty amps max Added by maintain... First, I am assuming that you are not an electrician. Second, I would suggest that you check with your local building official, it sounds like you may need a permit. Third, #6 THHN conductors will work under optimal conditions. However, there may need to be some deration factors applied. THHN may not work if the conductors are exposed to light, are installed in wet locations or other situations. It is best to check with a qualified electrician or local building official before you invest time and money on a project that will not work the way you want. Best of luck! Terry
