    The MH1 is impressive for a 35w projector but you really cant beat the foreground lighting and brights of the FXR and EvoX-R, not to mention the extra light the 50w setup puts out.

    I just installed a power inverter in my truck so as soon as I get a chance I will do some outdoor testing for you guys.

    so with the EvoX-R, would you need the power inverter?

    The power inverter is so I can set individual projectors up on my tailgate and power them with a regulated power supply. Its a lot easier then trying to bring 6 sets of headlights out with me.

    I'm anxious to try 50watt in my fxr's. only reason I hadn't yet is bc I wanted to stay with OEM ballasts.
    Dawson, do you know how to mod the denso ballasts for 50watts?

    They just did a update to the Morimoto internals. They have as fast of a fire up time as the Denso now and are waterproof, just do it bro, you will be impressed!

    So I have been trying to research all of the HID craziness, and I am pretty sure I want to do something with my factory HID's but just not sure what.

    I want the reliability of the factory stuff, assuming they have good reliability.

    We're you ever able to get some outdoors shots together? I obviously just need to call and talk with you to figure out what the hell I want to do!

    Hey Dawson, are you going to do a wall and outdoor shot of the MH1 6.0's? These things are pretty awesome even if its only 35 watts.

    Dawson, are you able to throw up pics of the halogens output (2010-12) for comparison?
