I have heard that this conversion makes a noticable increase in light

output on the 4kq.  I am relaying my lights on my girlfriends 87' 4kq

and wonder if I should do this at the same time.

It's pretty easy, see the details on the 20-valve pages at:

    Why does this work, is the 9007 a better bulb, or is it just a fluke

that it works better in this application?  ie, would it work better in a

Subaru or a 5ktq, or a 5k, etc.

    What can I expect, is it brighter or just a better pattern with the

newly oriented filaments?
No BTDT; think it's a better pattern, and may be higher wattage... don't
expect a big improvement (10%?)

    Sorry if this has all been covered recently.  I just havent seen it

recently and winter is coming.  Wish I had money to buy her Euro Lights

but for now Conversion and Fog lights will have to do.     ANy

experience with Hella 550's.   How about the cheap Blazer lights like

you see at Shucks.  THey have a funny looking  Cornering/Fog light that

looks more like an Aux  low beam that I may try.  Cheap build Quality

but only $25 too.

Driving lights would be much much better than the 9007 conversion; typically,
Hella and others design their reflectors quite well; cheapos may or may not.
Biggest problem is that it's non-stealth, and, IMO, should be shut off when
facing oncoming traffic.  I find that 4 point sources of light is twice as
blinding as 2...
