I just picked up some Pilot fogs with H3 55W bulbs. I bought some 100W bulbs to put in them. The relay that came with the wiring harness is 12v 30amp. Will this relay be able to handle the 100W bulbs? If not, I'll go get a heavy duty wiring harness or somethin.

I'm electrically challenged, so be nice! :boogie:


Thanks!


BTW, I realize some people may think I'll blind oncoming traffic with these bulbs but I plann on aiming them correctly so they don't blind people.

good 'ole Ohms law. If you are interested, look it up. volts * amps = watts

so

100watts / 12 volts = ~8.3 amps - plenty.
