So stock 2057s were brighter then Super White 1157s.... come to think of it I think you are right... I'll have to review some old night photos to check.

What about the LEDs... any thoughts?
I've got a little LED flashlight that'* bright as HELL... blinds you from across the room.
If they use the same type LEDs in a cluster... that would be REALLY bright.

Not without the old extra resistor to keep the lamp monitor happy.

Oh so 1157s won't work for backup lights... w/o giving the DIC something to complain about?
