Feedback wanted on Delayed/Directional Turn Signals & Brake Lights

Have been reading multiple posts and talking to a few folks who have installed Directional / Delayed Turn and Brake light kits. I also saw a post where a clever guy with help from his Dad built his own circuit.

For ease of installation and what looks like a clean water tight installation, I'm leaning toward the Phastek Performance or Afterthough kit. The installation Video looks straight forward enough. I have friend who installed a kit no problem.

My Question(s):
Has anyone had any problem with the Phastek or Afterthought kit?
Any installation issues to be aware of?
Has anyone had the kit installed for any length of time and how's it working?

Many Thanks - RickJHouston

I've had it on both our Camaros for 6 months, easy install and no problems ...they look best if you convert your bulbs to LED.

I was going to build my own set up for that, but ended up getting the Phastek one as a christmas gift. Installed it in about 10mins, hardest part was getting those plastic tab pieces out to take the drain covers off. I haven't had a single issue with it since december, and I drive 500miles a week, rain or shine.

Thanks to you both (Pannhead 51 & CookieCK) for your feedback. I'm going to get a kit ordered and go for it.

Pannhead - Would you please tell me more about what you did on the LED tail light bulbs? Any issues with the stock electronics on an SS (SS 2)?

Best Regards - RickJHouston

No issues, but you do need to install load resistors for each bulb.
