White turn signals: legal?

Question is posed exactly as the title. Is adding white turn signals (front) instead of the amber ones illegal?

Now of course this is a state-based thing. Here is one forum post somewhere else about NJ light laws. I dont know how current this is, etc though.
http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/archive.../t-252197.html

Based on that, I interpret that as not technically illegal, as they are still "substantially white or amber". Thoughts?

NJ thread was talking about headlights, so it doesn't help much.

You should be fine if you use yellow bulbs with white lenses for a different look, Factory done on various cars.

So long as the bulbs are orange/yellow, you are good to go.

The code in that law mentions one line about turn signals, only piece of literature I could find.

I suppose I may just end up with a set of switchbacks, as that's probably the safe bet.
