Default Fitting aftermarket HIDs in JDM HID lights

Has anyone fitted aftermarket HIDs into the JDM HID projector lights (bugeyes)? I only ask because the lights I bought didnt come with bulbs or ballasts but are the black chrome JDM lights. I assume this would probably work as long as I dremel the low beam cover to fit the wires in and seal the hole that the wires normally come out of from the ignitor. Any help would be appreciated!

found the answer to my question from Mulder...
OEM HIDs use industry-standard D2S bulbs. The ones in your retrofit kit are rebased and non-standard, and have been reconfigured to mount in the non-HID JDM H1 housings. You can't mount them in the D2S receptacles in the JDM HIDs. You can't mount H1's either, or any other halogen bulbs. Only D2S bulbs will fit properly.
