Default Yet another, another, fog light question.

So, i have a 97 Outback Limited.
The stock fogs suck, thats about the bottom of it.
Well i have 2 off brand fog/driving lights mounted on a light bar i made. Im looking to upgrade those to a nice set of hellas (500FF or FF1000s). Well since i would have that extra pair of lights, why not put them in the stock fog location? Well the main goal of my car is not to do anything permanent to the car for a few reasons. Everything i have done so far are easily reversible.
Now the question, what would be the easiest way to install those lights in the stock fog location, utilizing the stock fog switch? Im thinking either to splice into the wires where the stock wiring is so that everything from the switch to the bulb is maintained stock. Would the stock Subaru fog light wiring be enough for this? Or would there be a significant drop in voltage ie. output? Im familiar with wiring and electrical, im not, however, familiar with the stock wiring that subaru used on the fogs.

Also, does anyone have a diagram of the kartboy brackets? im assuming they are applicable to my car and i would like to know the dimensions of where the holes are so i can make some myself. (im not trying to duplicate and/or steal kartboy's design i just need a few numbers)

Thanks for the help.

For reference, here's a shot of my car.
