Hi guys, I'm new here, and I think the light output on these stock GP headlights is pretty poor overall, both on low and hi beams. I have 2 GP GTs, a 98 and an 01. Both are bone stock with the exception of a Pioneer iPod stereo and rebuilt trans in the 98.
I did a search on "headlights" and wound up reading a couple of threads on mods for HID and/or projector headlights. I also looked a little on eBay, but hard to tell what's quality stuff and what's a cheap ricer headlight that only looks blue when you turn it on at night....I'm not looking for the "ultimate" headlights, nor am I interested in spending a lot of time/money to get there.
So, my question is, what's the bang for the buck to increase light output on these cars? I have no problem adding a relay circuit from the battery if more power is needed, or replacing the entire headlight assembly if that's a better route, but I can't spend $400/car on parts. Does just going to a brighter bulb cause issues with the stock housing?
I changed the OEM bulbs in my 01 Suburban to Sylvania SiverStars and the change is barely noticable IMO. I get better nighttime vision from the PIAA 920 fog's in the airdam.
Or, should I leave the headlights alone and focus on the fog lights?
