You will definately see a voltage increase after the relay mod.


I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger and bigger....then it hit me!

I had performed the relay upgrade a couple months ago, and the difference is literally night and day. my Stock Halogen H6054's actually burn better than some of these headlight upgrades.

At first I was a bit hesitant to do this mod, but by putting 2 hot fused wires to the relays, what is the chance of 2 fuses blowing at the same time? I would think the chance is very small, so I am going for it. Installed Pro Comp lean lites a few months back and really didn't notice a difference.
Bet I will in a few days.

Has anyone just relayed the stock wires? Any improvment in lighting?

Maybe I am missing what you are asking but this mod uses the stock low and high beam wires to trigger the relay to get the power from the battery to the headlights.
Am I missing something here??

Like not replacing any wires, just adding in the relays before the headlights to take the strain off the switch

I don't think that it would do anything to help, the loss in voltage comes from the wiring harness from the switch to the headlights. That is what puts the strain on the switch.

The downfall after the switch is the undersized wiring, from my understanding. I don't think it would help.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.
