3157 Bulbs

I just changed my projector headlights from ebay turn signal bulb (3157 type) to a superbrightleds.com (3157). The turn signal now blinks a lot faster than the stock bulbs almost like a strobe. I was wondering are these bulbs going to harm my lights or electrical since they are blinking a lot faster.
Here are the projectors I have.

I bought me a pair from ebay once, they blink fast and after a few seconds it blown my 5 amp fuse. I replace the 5 amp with a 7.5 amp, it still blew the fuse. I then tried a 10 amp and it still blew the fuse. I just decided to ditch the LED bulbs and stay with OEM. Hopefully you have no electrical issues. I don't remember the brand I bought from Ebay.

You probably need to add a resistor in there before the LED
