    8AWG for two amps would struggle... severly id use 4AWG personally or 2 runs of 8 AWG if you really want to, that block would be fine for splitting the supply

    also id earth the amps seperately, and try and keep the earth as short as possible and make sure it has good contact i.e. make sure the surface is nice and clean for a good contact, no paint etc
