Morimoto bulbs it is, thanks MouSe.

I did a little more thinking, and a little research, and I found that the retrofitsource has a kit they sell for those that have HID PnP Ballast'* already, granted I'd be keeping the reflectors in there which may still cause a little glare, but I figure having the projectors in there would cut down on a lot of the glare, not that I have a lot of bad glare right now, granted it is there, it just does not seem that bad, I drove a bit last night and passed several cars on dark country roads, none of them ever flashed their lights at me.

My plans are to have the bi xenon'*, and keep my halogen high beams, I am pretty sure with a high beam splitter I should be able to get my xenon HID'* high beams to come on along with my halogen high beams, I plan to replace the current high beam halogens with Sylvania 9005SU SilverStar Ultra High Performance Headlight Bulbs, I know they do not last as long as regular halogens, and I know they get a bit hot, but I should be ok considering I rarely have to have the high beams on for too long.
Here is that PnP Kit they sell.

Plans are now for the following.
Accessory: AMP/D2S Ballast Adapters
Bulbs: Morimoto 3Five 3000K D2S
Projectors: Morimoto Mini Bi-xenon (D2S)
Shrouds: Gatling Gun

A long as it will fit, and as long as my light shrouds are not going to mess up the effectiveness of the lighting, here are pics of my light shrouds, I wish they were clear...
I measured the side the projector would go, and there'* only about about 3" of with, and 2.5" to 3.0" of height.

175.00 is not too bad, and I can DIY the install, this makes it affordable for me.

Thoughts, and or any feedback is appreciated.

You want either 4300K or 5000K bulbs, not 3000K. 3000K are yellow and generally used in foglights.

Doh, it was supposed to say 5000k, I copied that from the wrong tab that I had open.
