Instead of cutting the OEM 9003 wiring, I rather get a plug in adapter. Can i use this:

No that's not the style plug. When you remove your headlights you'll understand the wiring I'm taking about

BTW i did the retrofit but I made some mistakes from first time experiences. Your gonna laugh at the following mistakes:
Didnt properly put the projector in so the light line was in a 60 degree angle. LOL
Lost a bulb clip so I had to get another bulb clip ($5.00 set)
Now the headlights beams are too low and the housing wont adjust due to faulty headlight housings. I ordered a new pair of housing but I will check to see if they adjust like normail prior to baking, painting then installing. The retrofit morimoto kits are easy, the thoughest part is making sure no steps are missed. I will post when Im done.

awesome, i'm glad the few bumps didn't scare you away lol. looking forward to pics, especially the cutoff.
what exactly do you mean they don't adjust right? the projector should go straight in, and be pretty close to where it needs to be. you know the aiming procedures for projectors right?

Yeah the actual headlight housing is broken. It requires the 7mm allen hex wrench as u know. The projectors fit in the light hole and is secured by a fitted washer. Tonite im gonna check before baking and painting. Tomorrow I'm gonna do the install.

My driveway is on a incline. It have the nice but off that the company pride itself on but being that the morimoto h1 bulbs are small, therefore the output isnt as good as luxury cars with oem projectors. Its not much better than newer reflective halogen. I had to fab up some plastic pieces between the projector and the top part of the housing to get a higher aim. It was kind of a PITA. Overall, it looks ok but for the work and effort, I wouldnt do this again.

I feel something isn't right here then. The h1 bulb by TRS (morimoto) is a nice bulb with alot of light to be had. The "expensive cars" all run similar bulbs (d2s) which are just HID bulbs, but very similar. The best option for more light would be 55w balalst and bulb, which isn't a bad idea. It seems as if the bulbs aren't seated right and they aren't aimed correctly, because you should have way more light than that
