well here is the thing. this is suppose to be a simple plug and play kit. you will gain a massive advantage over stock. BUT!!! if you want the most out of this upgrade and want to pour as much money into this project to get it, then I would just go ahead and buy the hell 500 black series. im just saying.

no honestly, a relay will truly give you a couple or a few more hundred lumens. i just didn't feel like going through all the troubles and time of actually running all the wires and making proper connections for the extra 200-300 lumens. I mean that is alot!! but a 24 watt bulb will produce about 300-600 lumens, the 55w H11 will put out about 1100-1400 lumen. I am satisfied that i get more than twice the output. but if you really really what some bright ass fog lights. do the H11 to H9 conversion and run relays, you will be around the 2000 lumens range!!!!!!!!! but i would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend AGAINST that on STOCK WIRING!!!! because the H9 bulbs are 65 watt bulbs and that is far reaching the limit of wiring and fuses. = fire or a hot mess
