you might consider trying the relay mod first if you want brighter lights.

the voltage drop from the wiring and switch can make the lights WAAAY dimmer. just bypassing the connector C103 under the dash and soldering the wire made noticeably brighter.

om my mustang i went from 11.5v at the bulb to 13.8. if you look at the difference in lumens on the chart below, you'll understand what a difference this makes. (and it's cheap)

10.5V : 510 lumens
11.0V : 597 lumens
11.5V : 695 lumens
12.0V : 803 lumens
12.5V : 923 lumens
12.8V : 1000 lumens ←Rated output voltage
13.0V : 1054 lumens
13.5V : 1198 lumens
14.0V : 1356 lumens ←Rated life voltage
14.5V : 1528 lumens

i know it isn't what you asked.. sorry if it's off topic

I recently put new housings with new LED 6000m bulbs in them in my PT Convertible and am totally delighted with the result. I've already pretty much converted all my house lights over to LED bulbs and now doing my cars over with them, headlights, taillights, dash, etc. Pic shows new LED headlights, still have to put in the fog light LEDs I have still in the box.

These are the bubls I'd be ordering from amazon
