I use seafoam when needed, have brand new NGK iridium plugs and MSD superconductor wires, and have a screamin demon coil pack. I think my cats may finally be going out, as well as that crack in my header widening. But, seeing how the fuel filter has 70k, it cant hurt to change it. Also, im selling my headlights, decided i want more of an OEM look

I got my headlights off of CL. $140 for the headlights AND clear fogs. Pretty good deal if you ask me. They sell these heads on eBay as well. Just search "99 04 mustang clear headlights"

The raxiom tails is pretty much just your OEM ones with a light coat of VHT. I wouldn't waste money on buying a new set of tails if you could just give the old ones a little face lift and VHT them.

I really want to be honest and comment about "ricey" stuff but I don't want enemies either. Lol

This is how mine look like right now. As in pic taken a minute ago. Lol clear fogs.


How dark are your fogs? Since your fogs are smoked, it's better if you go with smoked heads as well... That way your HIDs would have matching color output.

Your tails would look good smoked but not all black. You want people to see your brake lights come on when you step on the brake pedal at 5:30pm sunset. Lol I've tried black tails before but I didn't like it. I went with vinyl tints... Removed the, after a month or two.

I got my smoked fogs off of AM so they are pretty dark, I was thinking about getting the smoked OEM off there also and then I guess instead of buying raxioms I'll spray them with some vht and clear coat and match them to the headlights or close too.
And what HID kit would u recommend?

I think the more OEM looking your stuff on your car is... The better. Looks more "legit" so to speak... At least to me it is. Just sharing my opinion.

I'm not sure if it does... I never oredered from them online... I picked up the kit from their store. My kit didn't have instructions but it's really simple bro.

Here's what's gonna be in the kit. The big silver box thingy is the ballast. This is the regular size. They also have the "slim" kind which is a bit more expensive. You could also choose between 35Watts or 55Watts... of course 55W is a bit brighter so if you're going with smoked heads and fogs, I suggest getting 55Ws .

The other thing is the HID bulb. You an choose from 3k to 12k(normally) color temp. 3k is like the JDM yellow and it gets whiter to bluer as you go up.

Here's my old kit

The 2 silver prong looking things you see sticking out then connects to your fog wire harness' positive and negative. Hope this helped. Sort of.

I'm thinking the pure white color.
But I think I'll do that, and I'll need 4?
2 for fog
2 for head

You'll need 2 kits. 1 kit for the heads, 1 kit for fogs. Since you have smoked fogs, it's hard to get the "pure white" output that you're aiming for... Normally I think 6k is pure white... You should get probably get 8ks since you'll be running smoked ones.
