Headlight Wiring Question

I have a 2003 SVT EAP that I believe came with the HID's from the factory. A previous owner obviously got into a small front end collision, as the car now has a standard Focus bumper cover rather than the SVT one, but the car also has the halogen lights now. The halogen lights suck, so I am looking into changing them over to the original HID's. All of my headlight wiring is spliced and connected to the current plugs via butt connecters, making me once again believe that the car had HID's originally. I am wondering what the best route would be for wiring up HID's, as I am not sure if I want to go the VW plug way or try and find original Ford plugs. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have attached a picture of the car, if any other photos would be helpful I can take more.

ford has a HID Mach Audio wiring harness it seems, my SVT came with something i've never seen it abandons the original headlight plugs and utilizes a new ancillary relay box thats next to the battery where it feeds the signal to turn on from the factory box and uses direct to battery relays see if they are factory or not see if there is a small 4 relay 3 fuse ancillary fuse box around the battery. or open the factory box and see if it still has the headlight relays in it as ford removed the ones on my car when they converted it

Thanks everyone, I’ll look into buying one of those harnesses probably. Which ballasts should I look into buying?

Your SVT is messed up then. I've sold over 15 of these so far.

No. I was planning on buying OEM HID housings, igniters, ballists, and a wiring harness.
Mach’s are the original HID lights the SVT came with, correct? I’ve read through some other threads and that is what I’ve gathered.

You are correct yes. If it makes it any easier for you, I have a couple sets of headlights I can sell. Machs that is. All complete. Some with all tabs, some with one tab, depending on what you want. Ignitors and ballast included so they work when you get them. I can give a discount on the plug and play harness too if you are interested in that.

Shoot me a PM or reply on here.
