Question

I remember a while back someone was talking about a real good replacement light for single light systems but I cant find it in the archives. I'm pulling the halogens out of the front of my car and I want to replace them with a real good bright light setup.
Thanks,
Mike

Mike not sure this is it, but several of us are ordering this wiring setup for 'brighter' standard lights. Give it some thought. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Sylvania H6024XV - XtraVision Halogen Upgrade - Three times brighter & twice the life of standard

Sylvania H6024ST - Silverstar High Performance Halogen Upgrade - Whitest, Brightest, 100% Street Legal

Both are great swap in upgrades, I run the H6024XV and love them, very bright. But I also use two MAD Electric Headlamp Relay kits for Low/High beams so my headlamps get there power directly off my driver side MAD Power Post instead of feeding back thru the firewall to the old fuse panel. This helps keep the load off the main fuse panel so my interior/dash lights don't dim slightly when turning on the headlamps.

Sylvania H6024CB - Cool Blue lights on my 68. I really like them. No idea why they are called cool blue, the light has no blue tint to it at all. According to the box they pull 65/55 watts.
They definitely took the scaries out of driving after dark. [img]graemlins/hurray.gif[/img]

Here are two Mad Electric RELAY kits and a Mad Electric Power Post mounted on my 69 Camaro.
I did this before I installed the higher wattage Sylvania headlights just because its the smart thing to do. Keeps the stress off the stock 12 gauge wire that runs to the stock fuse box, creates a short path for the headlamps to pull power directly off the powerpost (which gets its feed via a nice 8 gauge Phoenix Gold power cable with 60 amp fuse to the battery). Prevents any dash/courtesy light dimming when headlamps are turned on. If you don't mind tweaking the electrical system this really helps out!!

I also have my headlights on relays. It was one of the best upgrades I have done to my car in the 13 years I have owned it. All and any headlights will be brighter with this upgrade. I didn't buy a kit, I just purchased the parts at a local auto supply and for $15, could't be happier.
I have also heard of people melting the stock headlight wiring harness by switiching to a headlamp bulb that drew more power then the harness could handle. Its a very good idea to put better larger ground wires on the headlamp sockets as well to handle the extra current draw. Just my .02 worth!

Thanks I have the relays and power post. Ive done away with the external regultor and got a heavier charging system wiring harness. I'm going with the Silvestar I would like the most amount of light legally possible.
