    A) this prob shouldn't be in the 4cyl thread.
    B) none. unless you're running a projector retro, which in case depends on your projector.

    don't HID your stock headlight housings. terrible glare. too much light for your housings to handle. you'll piss other drivers off and it looks obnoxious.

    Well the truck came with hid lights in the stock housing and they look good but they are starting to burn out and I can't find the size anywhere on the hid kit.

    no one here is going to be inclined to assist because we don't support the use of improper headlight usage. however, theretrofutsource.com has a wealth of info and products that i would recommend
