Don't just buy the H.I.D bulbs, they won't be nearly as bright as with the kit.. You need a balace to make sure you have all of the powering for the bulbs.

This pic shows the difference of HID to a regular bulb. The ones I listed are reg bulbs but I think the reason the say HID is bc the light output looks like HID but it isnt? Anyone care to correct me?

http://www.hidinformation.com/hid-vs...halogen-bulbs/
So it sounds like either go to HID set up or but some reg bulbs that doesnt have the glass painted blue...

I mean they are def brighter the only reason why i would suggest HIDs is the price is the same as your can by silverstars for and there is a very big difference so def think about it. Like i said if I can hunt down where i put them ill throw them in there and u can try em out im not gonna need em for anything

let me know how the headers work out thats a beautiful price! I've been holding back from getting some because Ive been told the headers aren't much of a difference performance wise but never heard them in person.

Yea I would think there would be some sort of HP and TQ gains. Plus it should just bolt right in with the exhaust
