Anybody have a service manual printout of the connector pinout for both the Halogen (H13/9008) and HID (WPT-925)?

I forgot about the Halos. Those are an excellent alternative for about $300.

I did find that site, but they are missing the connector pictures and pinouts.

Been there done that with the 'OEM' retrofit - remember cruising the boards for TSX projectors.

If you think you'll have any inkling you'll want HIDs OEM, get it at the time of purchase. Unless you're really that crazy about 'em the time and money is much better spent on something like suspension or a supercharger.

Only issue with this is, its not even an option for a non-premium car. So it becomes a $4800 option instead of an $800 option if you really don't care for what the premium package includes.

I'll be doing a projector retrofit..hard to beat with parts down around $300 including bulbs, ballasts, projectors.

That's my problem. To keep the monthly payments down I went with the base v6. And then (when it gets here) I'll start looking at upgrades. HID lights would be great but with my budget I'm thinking the $2000 OEM parts are a little out of my league.

I will have to say that I'm glad I bought the premium with the HID/Security upgrade. Love the lights and the overall housing design.

Adapts the 2013 F150 HID's to any 2009-2013 Halogen F150, also have a test going to ensure this will work before selling them for the Mustang's
