    I am running some Hella 100/80w H4 offroad bulbs. I decided to upgrade my harness due to the comments of wires melting and so forth. I ordered a plug n play harness (Circuit Performance H4 Heavy Duty Harness from Buyheadlightbulbs.com). When i hooked them up, the lights were actually dimmer than with stock harness. Is there a fix or something for this? Had no problems with stock stuff as of now by the way. Thanks Yall!!
