What lumens are factory halogens rated at? Also what bulb size do I need for HID's from misterjungs?

Thanks to those who reply

Sorry if this has been discussed before.

In case you cant find it from searching, i'll be a nice guy:)

the stock halogens (H1) are rated anywhere from 1300 to 1550 lumens.

If you're considering buying HID from misterjung, you of course would need an H1 also

You can't just purchase HID lamps and install them in place of your halogens. HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps require a ballast to excite the Xenon gas mix and thereby, produce light.

I understand that pvick, I was just wondering what "k" I could go with for color and still be a lot brighter than my halogens.
Thanks coryu for the info I couldn't find the exact lumens for our halogens on any post I just found what "most" halogens are rated at. I did find that I needed H1 bulbs.

Thanks for the help everyone.

If you go with 4300K hid, it will be 3 times brighter the regular halogens. If you go with a 8000K kit the light is only 2 times brighter then stock lamps.

All HID Xenon> all halogen.

K rating is not lumen rating.

I know k detrimnes the wave length of light which determines the color the more color the less lumens so higher "k" = lower lumens lower "k" = higher lumens

As of right now that will be the last thing I do I'd like to have something custom done, maybe some airbrushing, but that wont come untill everything else is done. i'm still looking for a job, It seems as If I'm going to win the bid on the new color changing led undercar lights so that will be a cool mod to have.
