Default Re: HID Projector install [pics!]

Running 55w on the mini H1 is where people had issues. Theres plenty of people running the 5five = 50w Morimoto ballast with no problems. Also the aftermarket bulbs run a little hotter then oem. I switched to the 5k cbi bulbs and they put out alot more light then the Morimoto 3Five D2S bulbs at the same wattage.

Nice! I'm glad others here are realizing a quality bulb when they see one!

I know they are pricey and therefore not for everyone, but I love my Osram CBI's as well! I know 1st hand why they are considered one of the best HID lamps available.

My set up is d2s 55 ballasts and the new moto control harness.

Is it me or does this aluminum box not look like it's weather proof at all..? I was looking at the box and it's just screwed together with screws, i didn't see any type of sealant or anything like that.

Did your harness have two seperate ground points. One for each ballast? I just looked at mine and each ballast has a - battery ring terminal but it looks like I have to ground it to the chasis of the truck since the passenger side will not reach the battery terminal...lol

Yep I ended up with the orange control box and had to swap the white and blue wires in the connector.

As for the ground I just cut and spliced the wire and ran it right to the battery.
