Re: Matt's HID Installation Thread

Still raining here...going to get after it tomorrow. One question...can I hook all four of the relays in the same location on my + terminal? I have my 2 gauge amp wire coming off the same location, so will that be too much on the same bolt? Might be a stupid question, I just want the best location utilized...

Thanks Brad! Yeah the slim ballasts were really nice to work with.

Yeah, you should be fine Brad. For ~15 bucks you can get the pos and neg battery terminals I have. Check for pics in my stereo install thread (II). They use set screws and cavities rather than a bolt and washer. Muuuuch easier to work with. And cleaner looking too.

Re: Matt's HID Installation Thread



I like those! So you just remove the O-terminals from your wires and put the stripped wires directly in there...sweet! I may not go that route so I do not see why it would be an issue, but I had to ask the guru!!

Another question...I know that some people are not using relays for the fogs. I am thinking that since I have the relays for them, I will use them. Will the lights run more efficently one way or another? Seems the relay would provide a more direct source of power...but if it is unnecessary than so be it.

Yup! Just like the terminals on your amp. Cavity and set screw.

They're like 7 bucks each from partsexpress.com.

This would be a better question for Steve at XD.

Tony hooked me up! I believe I paid $120 for both 5000k kits, slim ballast, and a relay, shipped!

I think his prices have gone up a little though, so I wouldn't expect the same deal. I know at the time he was looking to move some excess inventory too.
