H11: MORIMOTO 2STROKE? - LED headlight bulbs

Anybody using H11: MORIMOTO 2STROKE LED headlight bulbs?

Can you post output pictures? Pretty please...

Are you running any harnesses? Anti-flicker or otherwise.

Thanks.

I actually had seen that video.

I was told that the placement of the LEDs in relation to the projector matters and that they may be great in one car and not in another.

Also curious about any additional hardware needed to run them.

That's true with any bulb, right?

I used spacers in my headlight to get my HIDs to sit further back, and the light output increased significantly. Makes sense if you're using an LED bulb (or anything different than stock halogens).

I have run so many sets of LED headlights and fogs. I run HID's for my high beams (which I rarely use, I drive in the metro 100% of the time practically never use my highs. That being said Ive had good luck with amazon LEDs in both my GTO and my SRT8 fog lights.

Currently running these-

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...0?ie=UTF8&th=1

And they extremely bright and especially in my Monaro fogs they are very noticeable. I did have one burn out after about a year but at that price its cheaper than halogen bulbs.

I also run the same led's in my monaro fogs... there 95% as bright as my low beams

I've had them in for two nights. I do not recommend them.

They are not plug and play. Dremel was required to open up the caps and holes have to be punched in the included dust boot.

Light output in my headlights is not as good as in the video above.

I would not buy again.

I always wondered if something like this was possible but never put much energy into it. Have pics or can you describe what you used?

IBM05GTO (or whatever his name is) kinda describes what you need to do. It's basically just removing the mounting point inside the headlight. Where those 3 screws are, you add a couple of small lock washers. This moves the HID light back, which projects more light... since it's not sticking too far forward in the projector.

I used to have a picture of the improved light output, but I have no idea where it is. I think I only put 2 washers. Kind of a pain since you have to remove the headlights. Or at least I did... since I believe I resealed the outside of them anyway.

Do these Amazon bulbs fit under the dust cap, and plug right in to the factory harness? For $30, seems worth a shot.

So I gave these a shot, and they're getting returned today. They did fit under the dust cap, but it was scary driving the car at night with these Amazon bulbs (not) lighting up the road.
