Not sure what you mean by "a complete projector kit." All I've been able to find is the bulbs with ballast. Not sure if thats what you mean?

So do use the HIR bulbs i have to modify the keys on said bulbs to work. Wont that void the warrenty?
Don't confuse brightness for focus.I just have my old ballast kits from my HIDs i was gonna reuse. Even with the HID's losing focus still gotta be brighter then what I have now.
Not sure if this is your personal experience, but in mine, this is nooot necessarily true...Putting HID headlights in a stock headlight assembly will give you brighter light, but it's not going to be focused down the road. Instead, it will all be up front, almost like having exceptionally bright foglights, you have lots of light, but it all goes about 5 feet in front of the car, not 25 feet away where you need it. The other drawback is that the light is all over the place, not aimed properly, so you will blind other drivers, specifically oncoming traffic with very very bight light.
The purpose of the projectors in HID headlights is to project the light into a focused beam down the road, with a clear "cutoff" of the light beam where oncoming traffic won't be blinded by them. For HID headlights to work properly, you need clear, non fluted lenses on your headlight housings, and proper projectors to focus the beam.
Any other combination will only give you very poor overall lighting.
Give this a good readPersonally, I put Sylvania Silver Star Ultra bulbs in my stock '94 Cougar housings and couldn't be happier. Granted, they're about $75 a pair, but I can see much better at night, especially after buffing out my stock "brown" lenses.
