Did the kit come with projectors as well or no? i looked at the listing and didnt see anything about it.
I dont really wanna be the d-bag blinding everyone going down the road lol.
Nope. Just ballasts, wiring and bulbs to fit into original projectors.

Most 6s come with HID capable headlights if I remember correctly
I know mine did

Not really. They come with Halogen-optimized projectors. If you put HID bulbs into a projector designed for halogen bulbs, you get some light going in directions it shouldn't go. To properly upgrade to HID you need to swap in projectors made for HID (retrofit), or factory Mazda 6 HID headlights (like mine has, as well as all speed6's (though I'm not sure if all wiring is compatible))

Either way, be advised that doing so is technically illegal.. though it's difficult to tell without scanning the VIN to determine if the car had HID from factory since all 6's have projectors.

The HID/speed6 versions are the same projector with a different bulb hub. They really aren't optimized for HID either. The mazda3 has some awesome projectors though.
I have to disagree. I have factory HID projectors in my headlights and also have a set of scrap halogen projector headlights from a 2007. In comparison, the halogen projector bowls are a bit wider, and the lens holder is riveted to the bowl, whereas mine are able to be fully dismantled.

What year are your scraps from? My stock projectors I could fully disassemble and they were halogens. Helped with painting a friend with a speeds bezels and his were exactly the same as mine other than the mounting holes were in a different spot.

@flipster23 The city of trees... sac town

Real me too, there aren't to many modded 6's around here, it's more of Mz3 and MS3's rolling around.

Patrick AKA CrimsonMT (IIRC) lives up in Roseville and he has a modded 6, then me, and then another guy with a white one that's slammed but I haven't seen him around lately, then I have a friend with a modded mz6 hatch.

If you want to go to meets and what not check out MOCC.

Hey Isnt you said you had straight pipes right?
Could you take a picture of how it looks?
What diameter pipe did you use? And how does it sound while actually having the foot on the gas?
I'm considering this!
Also how connect the pipes? Welded them?

For what ever reason it kinda sounds like a honda at high rpms in this vid... But it doesn't in person haha. Iphone camera doesn't capture much sound.


And

IIRC, 1" pipes or 1.5" not sure, but for sure a 2" tip, so also maybe 1.75" pipes idk haha an i welded them on after the axel.

Would you be able to make me a step by step?
Just so I know what I need and where to get it from also?
I'm sure I can't just use some EMT pipe right?
If you want you could PM me some more details!
Would be much appreciated!
