yes I dont feel like re making my post so I am going to copy what I posted on a different forum.

Yes I happend to have both on hand and told my friend to come over and take some pictures for me.

First lets start with stats.
5mm
Red 20Ma / 8000mcd / 2.6max voltage / 30deg. Viewing angle / 628wavelength (nm)

running at 2.1 volts (used supplied resistor to reduce from 12 volts)

Superflux HPWT MD00 F4000
red 70ma / 3lumen / 70deg viewing angle / 3volt max /

running at 2.4 volts (5 LED series from 12 volts)

held same distance from wall

yes it will be on a voltage regulator, and yes its freaking bright, and no, you can't have it. :tonqe: This is my 2nd one, because the first one I do not like the pattern of the LED'*.

first superflux TL. (superflux on right, stock on left) (note: the plastic trip piece is not on either of them, so some of the stock brightness is the actual bulb, which you dont see when on the car) (note2: that is not my basement, and not my big mess)

yes much... probably 2-3mm away from it...I am sort of worried about heat issues if I get stuck in traffic in the summer but I think I am going to cut some vents. and if I have my music on the subs will provide some airflow
