Default Hyper Flash....

So i did an FX35 projector retro into my stock housings, and everything works good, except i got the awesome hyperflash with the LED turn signals i bought. What would i do with one of these http://www.superbrightleds.com/flashers.htm does it replace the stock replay (where is it located in the car?) or does it just go inline with the turn signals in which case i will need two??

those flashers reeplace the stock one that is located IIRC in the fuse box in the engine bay. you might be better off just getting some load equalizers and placing them in line.

you need to add resistance. since the LED draw less amperage than halogens, you need to make up for it but putting a resistor somewhere in the mix.

yeah. not sure the exact size you will need but more than likely, you should be able to pick one up at radio shack.

if you could find the resistance of the LED's and halogens I could help you out finding what size resistor you need.

Yeah i looked on the website, and there were no resistance values like there usually is for a single bulb. And as far as the halgon goes i have no idea

most of the large autopart stores will sell the load equalizers. they usually run about 15-20 bucks for the pair.

So i just install those inline? or how exactly does that work?

yep, inline. they help the current draw. they heat up a little so i would suggest putting them somewhere with a little ventilation.

You're better off getting the electronic flasher unit. The equalizers are just low-value, high-wattage resistors that simulate the load of standard bulbs so the old electromechanical flasher works properly and doesn't flash rapidly because it thinks a bulb is burned out.
Using the resistors totally negates the lower current draw advantage of the LED's, and they also generate a lot of heat so you have to be very careful with placement. The flasher is a much more efficient solution.
