^ this is the bulb connector that came out of my fofo. the black wire next to it is 16 gauge. the recommended wire gauge for 80 - 100w is 12 - 14 gauge. stock looks to be 20 or 22 gauge if you ask me + the wire is of poor quality.

I wasn't saying anything bad.

I am 20 and have lit more things in a car on fire then i should have from 16-17 lol.

I would say a much larger wire will be needed. I know in my 02 it's like 22 or something dumb. Way too small i would find some really nice 14 guage we used it on a cobalt we did.

I have always seen the harness go first wires get hot boom melts instantly pretty much.
