That is the beauty of this kit

Been registered at this site for quite a while. I haven't posted because I really didn't see that I had much to add to the wealth of knowledge here.
However, I have to say that his upgrade kit, which I recently purchased, is extremely well put together and very effective at improving the light output on these vehicles. As soon as you take it out of the box, you know its quality.
Also very easy to install. It really does take minutes. No cutting, no splicing, its plug and play.

Sure, you can make your own. For 99 percent of us though, it won't be as well made as his product.

So... resurrecting a dead thread (though a wealth of information).

I want to get this wiring upgrade as-well but I did have an odd question or rather confusion.

Im going to replace my headlights (housings) and also want to do this upgrade to enhance the voltage to 14v.

Q: I have seen 100/80w upgrades too. Or rather read about them. For reference the OEM bulbs run I think at 50/35 watts.

Does this harness support 100w conversions? Does the connector support the extra heat?

I would assume so but I have no idea, please enlighten me!

Thanks!

The maximum wattage depends on the wiring size and connector. You can purchase the high temp silicon connectors. I made my own harness with 14 gauge wiring and the high temp silicon connectors and bought the EBAY 100/80w bulbs. I never ended up using the 100/80w bulbs, I didn't need them. The new harness helped the output a lot. The 100/80w are illegal anyway. If you wanted more output, I would recommend 100/55w for normal driving, at least these will appear to be more street legal with daily driving on low beam.

You do run the risk of melting your lenses or housings with the higher wattage bulbs, the stock plastic housings were never designed to put 100 watts in there.

I have a 14 gauge harness with high temp sockets. Threw in 100/80 bulbs in and readjusted the lenses a few degrees. Can actually see the road. Difference is clear as night & day. Even passed inspection with its output.

There shouldn't be any measurable temperature rise in the connectors. If there is, they're not conducting properly. I've been using 80/100 watt bulbs for 3 years now, and no problem with housing distorting/melting from the heat.
