Default H11b hid modification help

I have an 2007 Sedona ex
I'm planning on putting on hid kits in the projectors and fog lamps.
The only problem is that the bulb connector is for h11b and the kit is h11..
Does anyone have the modification steps to fit

Tu cheers

check this - may help

I would recommend splice on the wires instead taping the connectors.
The ultimate and best solution would be a harness extension - simply get the connectors as you have for the headlight, add extra wires, and splice these.

Hi all
Looks like a few views On this post and 1 suggestion..

Anyhow I managed to instal 2 sets of 8000k hid units on the 07 sedona and damn there bright, but not to oncoming traffic as the arc is perfect..

There was no modding and took under an hour, 1 set on projectors and 1 on fogs..

I used h11 for both, I'm am very impressed and happy.


Cheers

if you do not mind asking why the heck did you put 8000K? this is soooo blue, not even close to normal light?

keep in mind that HID conversion kit is illegal... and by using anything what is not close to OEM HID (4300 K) will attract Police.

and regardless legality of the set - from my experience, and from some professional research I can assure you that the more blue the light is, the faster your eyes get tired. Another problem is color itself - by shining blue light on the road and signs - you do not read them correctly. It means yellow sign will appear green, while white - bluish.

And if all of this does not convince you - 8000K produces much less light that 4300K, and to be exact - it gives you around 50% more vs. OEM halogen, or the same as some high quality halogen light bulb.

anyway, I hope you will enjoy it for a while, and then you will try 4300K.

Well I don't think you know what your talking about.

800k has very little blue, you may be thinking of 10-12k that people are using there very blue..

As for your 4300k there not as white as 8000k...

My 2 cents....cheers

Yes, you are right 800K is not blue at all - it is red.

But I do not know what you call "white and blue". Feel free to take a look on this graph. I encourage you to get the right background first before making such statement...
