You do not need a can bus harness.

The MH1 projectors uses H1 bulbs.

35 watt. MH1 projectors are to small for 55 watts. 55 watts will ruin the chrome coating on the projector bowls after time. TRS does not recommend 55 watts in the MH1s because of this.

I would just do the stage 3 kit with the projectors. Might as will buy it all and do it right the first time.

Lol actually quite easy man. I decided to try a new product this time and as you can see it is amazzzinggggg. I simply covered my electronics and battery with foil to keep them from getting wet, then I just lightly rinsed the rest of the bay with the hose. If you have grime and buildup use an engine bay cleaner. DO NOT USE SIMPLE GREEN, it is corrosive to the aluminum. Then let it dry for a minimum of 1 hour. Then you use the product which is SONUS Trim and motor kote. As you can see it turns out awesome(=

gtferrari Our cars do not require a special harness. I started out with the standard h13 relay but mine rusted out so i have replaced it with the morimoto black box.

I am running 50 watts and have never been given any trouble from the fuzz. You are taking a small light source and spreading it out over a large distance. You wont be as happy with the lights if you go 35w.

But you need projectors! This system rewires the lights to make the highbeams control a solenoid for the projectors. Sticking a xenon bulb in your stock housing is dangerous to everyone around you plus when it rains, snows, or you are driving in fog there will be so much kickback.

Unfortunately both lights must come out unless you have a cold air intake to install the harness. It can be installed from eother side. It just plugs into where the old bulb used to be. Depending on how long the power lead is you will most likely need to plug it into the driver side. Secure everything down because the ballasts and controller do not like the vibrations -may shorten the lifespan if you do not.

If you plan on retrofiting later i would wait on this unless you have some form of projector like eagle eyes but be mindful that setup uses a h9 bulb i think. If youre using the stock housings it would be better to find a 50/65watt halogen bulb.
