Default Upgrading to LED's

So its tax season again, which means I get to splurge on some mods for my pt.

One of my new headlights blew so I am going to replace those, while im replacing those I decided on putting red leds in my brake lights as the white regular bulbs in there now make my lights look pink!

My main question about putting in the red led turn signals is that I am curious as to if I need a 25 watt 6 ohm resistor or a 50 watt one?

Also will the new led brake lights be dimmer until my brake pedal is pressed like factory lights, I dont want it to seem like im riding with my brakes on all day.

I also went ahead and ordered some chrome bulbs for my front turn signals and I am going to dissassemble my headlights and mod them a little

Nothin unique really. Just putting the bright white lights back in as well as painting the headlught housing black and drilling holes for red leds.

Im mainly curious as to what kind of resistor I need to keep my turn signals from blinking rapidly, i see ebay mainly offers a 25w 6ohm resistor and a 50w 6ohm resisitor...

Also does anyone know how many lights make up the 3rd brake light?

The third brake light is three (3) bulbs. I just put a flasher on my 3rd brake after Crewzin blinks three times and then goes solid, like it.
