6054 Headlight Conversion Kit Question

I'm looking at converting my H6054 sealed beam headlamps with a conversion kit manufactured by Pilot. The new kit uses 9003/H4 bulbs. I'm wondering if anyone else has done this conversion and how it's working for them? What are everyone's thoughts or opinions regarding this conversion? Is it worth the $40/assembly plus the cost of bulbs? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

The conversion kit is available through Checker/Schuck's/Kragen and is part # WIHL5A.

They also have a kit for the H4056 Headlamp (part # WIHL6A) just as an FYI.

H4 setups are normally not street legal. Make sure the lenses have the DOT stamp on them first.

My only thought is to make sure the harness is up to teh task.

Consider using a separate relay to operate the low and the high beams.

Run over-sized wire for the main power just to make sure you get all the light the system will allow.

There is a right way and the wrong way to wire them up so do it right the first time.

silverstars, 40 bucks for both and are 10X better than stock and you dont need to upgrade anything unless you want to.
