You want at least 6 conductors from the indoor unit to the outdoor unit with heat pumps, but that is not a heat pump.

The outdoor unit diagram shows 2 conductors required. I'd pull 3 or 4 conductor 18 gauge wire from the furnace to the outdoor unit with a conventional split system.

Looks like you have a 2 stage gas furnace that does not support a 2 stage thermostat.
The diagram for the furnace shows 5 conductors from the thermostat to the furnace, but I would pull at least 6 conductor 18 gauge wire between the stat and the furnace.

It would be 5 plus one spare. The two that go to the compressor unit (not heat pump) go to the air handler where they are combined with the thermostat lines.
