A: This box would work for a GFI, however it is a nail-on box for "new work". You nail it to the stud before the drywall goes up, then cut a hole in drywall where the box is to install your GFI. If you're adding a GFI to an existing wall you'll want an "old work"/"retrofit" box. You cut a hole in the wall where you want it, the box sits pretty flush with the wall and is secured by screwing the "tabs" to the wall. I attached a screenshot of one option that Home Depot carries. For further assistance, there are YouTube videos available on "How to install an old work box". Hope that helps! (PS: I'm not an expert, just an electrician's wife sharing things that I've learned along the way.)
A: Any box will work for a GFI outlet. If you have more than 2 black wires in the box, you might consider a box with a slightly larger volume to make the wiring job easier. Note this box is for new construction, meaning it is nailed directly to a 2x4 stud. If you already have drywall on the all, then opt for an "old work" box instead of a "new work" box.
A: This box would work for a GFCI receptcle. Only thing you want to avoid is a shallow box that doesn't have the depth needed for a GFCI.
A: No. You can use plastic or metal. Get. “Deep” box so you have extra room
A: Thank you for your question. No 8 awg wires fit in this box. The largest wire size is #10.
A: That is a large diameter wire. this box has 4 wire entry points. of each wire fills a entry point then the answer would be 4.
A: It is a 2 hour fire rating on these boxes.
