Exclamation LHD lights: Can someone explain this strangeness?!

Did a search andhaven't found anything.

I have had my LHD sti lights installed for about 3 weeks now and just the other day I noticed something wierd.


Daytime. Driving with DRLs on. I could see my lights reflection in the car ahead of me and when car is under load they got much brighter! At first I thought it was just the change in angle as I approached the reflective surface, but it was distinctly getting full bright whenever I came under load, or when boost was building.

What is going on with that. I never noticed it before, because on a sunny day, you have to be focusing on it or going through a tunnel to see it.

Anyone else experience this?
Is it an issue with the DRL system?

Any help is appreciated. thanks.

the same thing happens with an underdrive pulley. when idling the power drops....so the lights get dimmer, but as you power the engine, the power increases, as does the lights....

Andres,

I was thinking about that, but the power is steady at idle and it's not until engine is under load that they seem to get brighter.

Can't say I've ever noticed it with the stock lights, so I figured it might have something to do with the additon of the LHD's
