That's not just OK, it's about the only way you can do it.

You'll also need to run a 10 gauge wire from the 8 mm lug on the starter to the alternator - that can either go along the cross member under the engine (where the old battery "+" cable used to go) or around the engine compartment. Then another heavy gauge wire (probably a factory wire) will connect the starter or alternator to the fuse box, ignition switch, headlight switch, etc.
