    Question help after headlight mod

    Hi guys,
    I just did the mod that makes your low beams stay on with the high beams. My questions is, I have 100w bulbs in my high beams and low beams, is this too much wattage? Or will the wiring be ok? thanks

    or should i back the low beams down to 55w?

    I would think that is fine. If the wiring has handled it now it still will with them both on as they will still be running on seperate wires. If you pigtailed them into one set of wires you might have an issue.

    Depends on which mod you did. You should have a separate relay for high beams, and one for low beams. Also, make sure your grounds are as big as your supply wires.

    If you're running 100wX4, I think that will be a big load on the system...
