Re: Installing an Air Horn

mount the release valve near the horn, not the tank (solenoid). If you mount near the tank, you'll experience a lag in response on the horn since the air has to travel that distance first.

Re: Now that I've installed the HID Projectors I have a BIG PROBLEM

Not in the slightest. I unplugged the high beams, plugged the xenon solenoids into the high beam wires and now the xenons run bi-xenon mode. The ONLY way I see possible to fix the high beam issue is...

Re: Retrofit - H1 Mini-Morimoto Bi-Xenon HID headlights

THANKS!


Considering a change to some cheap DDM 55w 5000k fogs. I've got xenondepot 5000k 35watt HIDs on xentec ballasts now, but they appear a little more blue than the H1 5000k HID headlights ...

Re: Now that I've installed the HID Projectors I have a BIG PROBLEM

No one? Basically my only options now are to wire the bi-xenon to the high beams and install ****ing LEDs in the high beams or something. I don't see this being fixable.
