Ford Mustang HID Conversion Kits! $150, includes everything you need!
 

Diode Dynamics is pleased to offer Premium HyLux HID Conversion Kit. This kit has been carefully designed from the ground up to be the highest-quality HID kit available on the market, without exception.

Ballast: The ballasts are the most important component of an HID kit, as they provide the power. After years of providing midrange and high-quality ballasts for vehicles of all makes and models, Diode Dynamics learned what was important in making a good ballast, and applied it when designing these.

Controller Chip. Most digital (DSP) ballasts on the market still use generic chips, which are cheap, and work pretty well. However, when you need maximum quality, you need a new computer chip designed for one purpose. This is known as an Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). These ballasts use brand new DSP ASIC chips for maximum efficiency and brightness, fast warmup time, and extremely stable operation.

CAN-BUS. Some vehicles have systems which sense the power consumption. Since HIDs use less power than factory halogen bulbs, this can cause issues. You can resolve this by adding capacitors, known as warning cancellers, or some ballasts come with them built-in. However, sometimes that's still not enough to trick the vehicle! To fix it, this ballast has not one, but two CAN-BUS modules, which provide capacitance and resistance to the circuit to defeat even the most troublesome modern CANBUS systems. Even if your vehicle does not use a CAN-BUS system, these modules will provide extra power smoothing for reliable operation. Simply put, this ballast will work on any vehicle, the first time you plug it in. With this kit, you don't need to worry about capacitors, warning cancellers, or resistors.

Igniter and Startup. You may have heard of ignition issues with other ballasts, caused by an igniter that is too small to withstand cold temperatures. No reason to worry with these ballasts- the oversized 24kV external igniter means that you will never have an ignition issue, even in the coldest temperatures. Additionally, the ASIC chip in these ballasts means that you only need 4 amps at nominal voltage to start up. These ballasts consume less power than any other on the market, meaning 100% reliable and fast startups, every time.

Shielding. Ever noticed a little black plastic thing clipped onto your laptop charger cord? That's a ferrite bead, which is used to suppress high-frequency signals, which can create radio interference. All ballasts generate these signals, and most just have protection in the ballast. We've also included ferrite beads on the wire, to suppress them.

LED Indicator. Convenience is key, especially during installation. To make things easy, we've added an indicator LED on the input wire, so you know that the ballast is getting power.

Case. These ballasts are the smallest you will find, about the size of a pack of playing cards. The case is fully potted, or filled with epoxy, which makes them fully waterproof and shockproof. Most ballasts on the market are filled to some degree, but these are completely filled to the top, sparing no expense to ensure longevity.


Bulbs:
The bulbs included with Diode Dynamics kits are CNLight bulbs. CNLight is the top manufacturer of aftermarket bulbs in the world, providing the best quality available. You might see other high-quality kits on the market which also use CNLight bulbs. They provide superior life, brightness, and color attenuation when compared to generic HID bulbs, like those found in most cheaper kits on the market. The one-piece base design prevents any issues with separation over time, making the entire bulb extremely reliable.

The CNLight bulb temperatures are rated accurately in Kelvin temperature at 35W, and have an industry-standard 3000 hours of estimated bulb life, which should outlast your vehicle. Please be aware that most HID bulbs are rated inaccurately from other manufacturers. 8000K is not dark blue, and 6000K is not pure white! We provide accurately-measured colors. 3000K is our lowest temperature, and has a pure yellow output, which is great for use in fog lights. 4300K is a pure white output, as seen on many factory HIDs. It will not have any blue tint to its color, and might appear slightly warm. 6000K is our most popular color, which produces an ice white color. It has a very slight hint of blue, and matches best with most LEDs. 8000K is our highest temperature, which produces an ice blue color. This is not a strong blue color though- it is still primarily white, meaning there will be no decrease in light output.


Relay:
Your Premium CAN-BUS HID Kit includes a brand new Heavy-Duty HID Relay, to power your HIDs directly from the battery, instead of the factory wiring. This relay has been designed from scratch, and utilizes a fully-sealed, waterproof relay, with flyback diode, and even has a built-in capacitor for input power smoothing. All wires are sleeved with braided techflex for an attractive appearance and extra protection. The input wires are each a meter long, and the output wires are one meter and two meters, which means the wiring will be long enough for even the biggest vehicles. The single-ground design makes installation easy. This relay was designed with reliability, convenience, and long-life in mind.


Warranty: Our warranty is through Diode Dynamics, LLC, so you can be assured that you will get fast and friendly service should you have any problems. There is a 3-year limited warranty on all HID Kit components, including HID Bulbs, Ballasts and Relay.

Shipment: We carry our own inventory, so no waiting for them to be shipped from overseas, or waiting on big, unreliable suppliers to ship them. They ship right from our own inventory, in St. Louis, Missouri, usually the same day you order.
Kit comes with:

  • One pair HID bulbs in your choice of bulb size and color
  • Two 35w super-slim ballasts
  • Mounting hardware for ballasts
  • Limited Lifetime warranty on electronics (ballasts and wiring)
  • 3-year limited warranty on all components

Customer Reviews:


"I always liked how the HID lights on the 2013 mustangs matched. I have the HID headlights but regular fog lights. This was such an easy upgrade. the install was a lot easier than I thought. the only tool you need is a flat head screwdriver. If you have the fog lights in the grill (GT model) then get the H10 bulbs. if the fog lights are like a California Special go with the H11's I ordered the wrong ones by mistake the first time around. The final product looks great. my fog lights are now brighter and all the lights match. I would highly recommend this kit. you will not be disappointed especially if you have the HID headlights on your 2011/2012 mustang GT. I got the 4300K temp bulbs and they are perfect."

"Installation went per plan both from thinking this thru and also re reading the directions. Installation was simple after removal of the existing lamps. I did attache my ballast/negators to interal rubber frame area with screws to secure them. I also tied up excess wires in the harness. Nice to have functional Fog lights instead of incandescent halogen that are over powered by the Factory HID headlights.

Thank you" (Posted on January 2, 2014)

"Purchased the "1994-2004 Ford Mustang Hi/Lo Beam HID Conversion Kit" with the RELAY + 9007 BiXenon. Everything was plug and play. Luckily I had a friend who had done this a few weeks ago and helped me.

Placed on the passenger side is the harness end with the Ballast, Relay, High beam and Ground connector, while driver's side is where the Ground connector plus the single Power cable (RED) that connects to the positive cable on the battery. The rest of the connectors are fool proof and plug n play.

Install took about 30 minutes due to routing of the harness so that it was clean looking and hidden as much as possible.

Definitely will recommend to friends and family."

"By Far these are the best of the best. I have been through many HID Kits for the mustangs that i have owned and these are the best aftermarket HID kit that I have seen!!!!!!!!
Thanks,"

"Just installed my bi xenon 6000k kit and what great quality. Right out of the box you know you don't have some cheap knockoff. Everything plugged together perfectly, harness was JUST the right length. The hi/low option works great and really lights up the way. Completely satisfied from ordering, shipping time, and finished product" (Posted on December 17, 2013)

Do you guys have any H11 5k HID bulbs that bend at 90 degrees instead of the straight design?

Diode Dynamics 02-12-2013 11:11 AM

Unfortunately the H11 HID bulb is not manufactured in that design nor do we carry 5000k bulbs (6000k is the closest we have), sorry!

What headlights are in the picture above? They look like raxioms or factory hid's.

Diode Dynamics 02-22-2013 12:24 PM

The picture in the first post? Those are just factory headlights and our fog LEDs.

LTorve 03-19-2013 09:43 PM

Do you have any pictures of what these look like on a mustang? Sorry for the N00b question

HID's with smoked lens covers
 
This is probably a noob question but I have the smoked lens covers on my mustang and was curious if switching to these would improve night time visibility?

kbonds1 05-09-2013 09:30 PM

I've been interested in something like this. However I can't stand all the civics and other pos cars running around with HIDS that blind every other car. Stock housings were never meant to project HID's properly. Have you found a solution that makes the conversion safe for on coming drivers? I'm def interested if that's the case.

Yes HIDs are considerably brighter then your stock halogen bulbs. These will be a major improvement.

You will experience more glare when using an aftermarket HID system in a reflector-type housing, due to the way the reflector works. However, newer reflectors are MUCH better reducing glare for others on the road, and most of our customers find that it's not as bad as many make it out to be. Civic reflectors are terrible. TERRIBLE. But just look at the reflector design of newer vehicles. Much more work goes into the design and the projection of light is completely different.

example: (excuse the messed up color)

http://rawrgv.com/images/2013/03/24/...2bc21a2c_1.jpg

It's obviously not a projector with a nice cutoff line, but it's also not spraying light everywhere like many will tell you. Like I said, newer computer-designed reflectors are incredibly better than older ones.

1) HID bulbs are produced with consideration to two setup configurations... the 'R' designation for reflector lens' use and 'S' for projector-style lenses/housings. Are we, as consumers, able to specify 'type' (reflector lens vs projector style) when ordering? I'm thinking of converting from OEM (2006 GT - reflector-type) to the full-on Raxiom projector style lens/ bulb housings for maximum focus of beams.
2) Bi-Xenons: I find it highly desirable that the 'low' beams stay on with the Hi beams to really 'flood' the road ahead. Will I be able to configure for just this modern feature (low beams always on)

As a long-distance driver, it is my opinion that with today's 'flat', highly- focused beams, there is no longer any good reason to extinguish the low beams ...ever (fog or no fog) unless of course you're sitting in an SUV (higher up) and you want the lamps to project down low and nearer to the road surface. I'll suggest that the days of the old 'scatter-beam' headlights are numbered!

You are correct, but all aftermarket bulbs are rebased "S" type bulbs. There are no rebased "R" type bulbs produced as it does not really make a difference when installing in a non-HID reflector.
The Bixenons work by angling the existing HID light. Essentially, the bulb is simply aimed to focus higher on the road rather than lower. You would not get double the light or anything like that as the same HID bulb is used for high beam and low beam, similar to OEM Bi-Xenon setups with a flap to adjust the beam direction.
Thanks,
Paul
