Anyone know of the best wiring and connectors to get when upgrading my headlights and foglights to a high wattage? I'm wanting some 5000-6000K color lighting and need to upgrade the stock wiring/connectors to handle that much extra juice so it won't melt my wires.

personally, I'd vote no on doing this.
If anything, use Nokya wiring harness, search ebay.
Pair those up with nokya bulbs... they have bulbs with the Color temp you seek.

going higher wattage isn't the best solution to getting more light output. It results in shorter bulb life and other unforeseen faults. Some install HID conversion kits, which works if you spec out the right parts, and kits made with OEM quality... But after that's all done with, pairing them with the correct type of projectors, and labor done modifying the current headlamps, or ebay projector type lamps, it's much easier to just get the Mach HIDs and call it a day.

BTW, i have 4500K hyperwhite (bluish color) H4 bulbs from ebay ($15 shipped) and 2500K nokya hyper yellow foglamps.

Hmm interesting. It's less than $20 for my 9007 wiring harness on ebay. That's not bad...I'm a little skeptical on ordering bulbs on ebay--I'd hate for them to get damaged. Anyone know of any local places to north Texas that sell some decent 4500k, 5000k,or 6000k bulbs? I'm looking for some decent brightness with ZERO yellow color...the closer to blue/super white the better. I also plan on getting some bright ass super white foglights too. I think I could get some sliverstar fogs (H11) for my Focus I assume. Thoughts?

You do realize that coated bulbs that will give you that blue/white look also lower actual brightness right? I just went with an hid kit on my Focus. It makes the beam not as nice, but it is bright.

No I did not actually...and I'm looking more for super white than blue. If I find a good blue I'd consider it--but I'd rather have as bright as I can get with ZERO yellow light.

I'd say get either PIAA's or else Silverstars. Those are about as white as they get, while still being halogen's......Just remembered you wanted high wattage bulbs, so your best bet is maybe those Nokya's or something similer. I don't know what wattage they come in though.
