SVT HID Headlights from EAP

I was very fortunate enough to finally get a pair of HIDs for my SVT finally! When they come in I will paint the inside to mach the SVT style housing.....until then....

Ebay Item Number: 230007021888

I've been doing research on the install on non-HID equipped foci's and discovered that I will need a wiring harness. As well as some other small items.

With that said. Will I need the VW Adapter too? Or is that if I decide to splice into the wires. I am a bit confused as I could of sworn that I do not need it, if I get the Geniune Ford Harness. If I get the Ford Harness, then I will not have to splice into it right?

For those that have installed it on their SVT's what were the parts you needed?

I have a list here that was shown on the FJ website...

24 x Wires for VW Adapter
2 x VW Adapter (To HID)
2 x Wire Harness (From non-HID harness)
2 x 15A fuse


Thanks for your help!
P.S. I do have the Install PDF from FJ.

I don't think Ford offers just the harness on it's own

I believe that you have to build the harness to go in-between your factory harness to the headlight using the parts you have listed

i have HID's

i'm almost 100% positive you can get the harness (if you even need it) from ford racing. some of the later model headlights don't need the harness!.

go ahead and buy them, THEN get what you need, don't spend money you don't have to.

Well Scrammer, I just think that is to much chrome in the housing, but I guess that's where it gets its brightness from. We'll see...I'm still reading the "How To's" to make sure I am ready.

Jaimz22: I'll go ahead and get the harness to be safe and work from there.

thanks for the help guys!
