do a projector retrofit, get either the ACURA TL projectors for a complicated retrofit but worth the output or the morimoto FX-R for an ok output but easier install. i did the TL with OSRAM CBI Bulbs 50W ballasts and clear lenses, couldn't be more pleased with the results, and i did the Xenon plug n play kit and this was way better.









Plug n play

You did a great job and I admire your effort.

I do a lot of MODS myself on my truck, but this one is not for a person with limited to average ability/skills. I would like to do this but I know my limits and this is on a skill level of 10 out of 10. JMHO.

I agree with kevinhann, and Asur I went the retro solutions route also and do not regret it I've had no issues in 1 year that I've had them. I have Projectors Hid's 6,000K, 55w yes they were taken apart and reassembled all the wiring was there and it was easy.

I also did my own retrofit, but I used the Morimoto D2S Five5, I picked up a set of Headlights off ebay for my first attempt, next summer I will be modifing my OEM Set with FX-R's, and some other stuff, this is what they look like presently and I am quite happy with the D2S.

I did the morimoto fx-r first with morimoto 5five bulbs but wasn't satisfied so i went with the TL clear lens and osram cbi's and it was a huge difference, not only do the tl with clear lens smack the crap out of the morimoto fx-r but the OEM osram bulb is much brighter than the morimoto bulbs. also don't get 100w ballasts and try to use them on the morimoto fx-r i did that and it burned the whole projector and i noticed that i had left a finger print on the decorative shroud on my first retrofit that eventually burned into the chrome of the inner headlight. FYI. in my opinion the extra work for the tl is worth it oh and i used dryer vent tubing from home depot to hide the parts the shroud couldn't.

If this is a 10 out of 10 where would you place an engine swap?

I want to thank everyone for there input! I sounds like I need to wait until warmer weather and more research before I attempt anything like this. By the way, engine swap is a 3 out of 10 in my book. Plug and play.

By engine swap I mean using an engine that is not native to the car/truck it's being placed into.
