You should be able to replace the bulbs with the H1 based HID bulbs, wire up the ballasts and be good to go from there... However light output will be kinda sketch and glare will be an issue...

I'm more biased towards doing a retrofit, but that's a whole other ballgame...

If you're willing to go back to a stock style headlight housing, something like this will give you pretty good light output with minimal glare...
