how much truth is in this if we install LEDs in the oem brake/turn location & add the rear fog lamps with LEDs that we don't need resistors?

Re: WK2 rear fog lamp Install w/Pictures

over the weekend installed my homemade ebay rear foglight kit with LEDs along with swapping LEDs into my tail light housings, using Autozone off the shelf Sylvania 3157 LEDs for the tails and LED 7443s for the rear fogs. Without the resistors installed I got hyperflash. I used the trailer t-harness connector at the tails and opted to put my resistors down by the rear fogs instead of up by the tail light like most ppl do...primarily because of the heat issue that everyone says the resistors create, I did not want to risk melting a tail light.
