  • Simultaneous high/low beams

    Not to cross-post, but, well, I'm gonna cross post:

    My gf and I figured this out last week, and now I can actually see where I'm going at night.

    Looks pretty damn cool, too. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/wink.gif[/img]

            Cars with NO DRLs
            Early S-series

            Cars with TURN SIGNAL DRLs
            ION, early S-series (Canadian models)

            Cars with LOW BEAM DRLs
            VUE, Sky, late L-series

            Cars with DISABLED DRLs

            This mod WILL NOT work on:

            Cars with HIGH BEAM DRLs
            Late S-series, early L-series
            Which years are "Early" or "Late"?

              95 + earlier sedans
              96 +earlier coupes

              Where did you get that list?

              You can mod all S-cars w/o popus to do that.

                he simply meant that if you don't dissable your DRL you will have your highs and lows on ALL the time during hours of daylight operations(oops military wording slipped again)

                  i have pop-ups and overdrive my highbeams at about 60, lows at about 35. My foglights project better than my headlights.

                    SHIT< I am doing the install/mod now, and came into an issue, it says blue ground pink ground orange power, well I have a blue to each a pink to high and orange to low, so which is it? should I consider my blue constant?

                    NM, I finished. there is a blue on the lows on the passenger side. Thank yoiu chiltons, lol

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

                            Hmm, didn't realize they changed colors on later years, but I'm glad you figured it out, Anunis. :lol: L-series, honestly I'm not sure on the exact years - they started with high beam DRLs, then switched to low beam DRLs with the "facelift" a few years back.

                            Oh, score - I didn't realize that this mod would fool the fogs into staying on with the high beams, but nice! I'm glad it does. The more light, the merrier!

                            For pop-ups on early SC/SC2s, I actually wouldn't recommend this mod. It'll burn out your headlights quick from the heat of having both filaments on at the same time. Instead I'd recommend this:

                            Shown on my MR2, 4" x 6" equivalent will work on an early SC/SC2. Euro beam pattern actually puts the light where you need it, and it takes a standard H4 bulb of higher wattage than the crappy sealed beams. Really the beam pattern makes the biggest difference, but brighter bulbs help too. I wish there was a Euro headlight assembly available for my SL2, but there isn't since it was never sold in Europe.

                              Is that just a plain old 4x6 one that you can pick up at checker or whatever?
