Where did you find space to install the ballasts on the driver's side? I can't figure out an adequate spot.

I'm using Philips ballasts btw...

Crappy thing about this is.. This is the spot where I think my FMIC instructions tell me to mount the coolant resevoir bottle.. So I may have to figure something else out.

The passanger side was the hardest.. I cant wait until my intake gets here so it will fit better....

That is a bad location, the run channel for water has a high chance of dripping onto your ballasts, causing a short.

Hey Hua..

Yea, I anticipated that and flow tested the location with my garden hose.. So far no water has touched the ballasts.. I will be moving them to a more permament location soon but the excitment was killing me.. hehe. Also, I live in Sacramento where it rains like 3 days a year.. today being one of those days.. I want to know more about the under the headlight assembly install.. are they just stuck to the bottom?

If you take out the head light altogether you will see that you can mount them underneath because there is enough clearance

Just make sure they are SECURE!!! I used numerous zip ties to support mine to the frame under the headlights.. One of my ballasts failed when the double sided tape came loose and destroyed the ballast so I zip tied them up!!!
