HPS - high pressure sodium -- HID - high intensity discharge lights will put out 3 times as many lunens as a halogen of the same watage but blue and purple lights are no good. Your eyes spent millions of years evolvolving to see in sun light. Our suns light color is 3000k to 5000k. If you use bulbs with a color over 5000k your making light your eyes can't see.

I would get a pair of 55 w. HPS. @ 3500k - 4500k, 5000k max if you think it looks cool?, hook them up so 1 is low beem and both come on for high beem.
A 55w HPS has 5 times the lumins as a the stock bulb.

I use the piaa h6m extreme white bulbs in the stock housing and they are way better than the stockers. But the trailtech hid's are the way to go if you have the money.
