Honestly, I would not put 9005 HID bulbs into my 9006 projector housings. The 9006 bulbs were designed for a specific housing. Everything from the depth of th bulb, to the way it sits in the projector housing will effect the light output.

This is the basic pricnicipal of why people do HID retrofits in their cars. You can not just put a bulb into a projector because it fits and think it is optimal. If you don't want to do a retrofit then atleast get the 9006 bulbs that are made for the projectors. Just my $.02

Actually because the Supra uses projector housings, it doesn't matter that you are using 9005. I used to run 9005 Silverstars before I had HIDs.

Unlike normal cars the bulbs on the Supra aren't exactly exposed to incoming traffic. It's filtered out by the projector lense anyways...
