Replying to Topic 'Just ordered my Catz Zeta system'

Ive looked into that product several times but have not been able to find a decent explanation of what it does. I'm guessing is a line voltage amplifier? If so, it should greatly reduce the life of your bulb.... I'd rather spend the money of Catz HID (yes, it's more expensive in the short term, but I think the performance/price ratio is higher IMO and you dont have to worry about bulbs going out.

True :) I wans a report on my desk first thing in the morning Monday! ;) j/k of course.

But honestly, I'd love to get some functional info on it once you receive and install it :)

Definitely...I'll record and post pics of the install and the results. The install is going to be a bit difficult though...
If the M6 used standard 3/4" ATO fuses for the L & R low beams and L & R high beams, it's just a matter of plugging a new fuse into the old headlight fuse, and plugging that old fuse into an inline fuse holder, etc., etc.... It's essentially a plug and play kit with the exception that you have to ground each ballast.
BUT...
I checked and the M6 (US-Spec at least) uses the smaller ATO fuse...so now the install is going to require splicing wires, blah, blah, blah :(

Oh well...Catz has a schematic about how to do it so I'll just have to utilize good 'ole time and patience and see what happens.

Just make sure you solder and heat-shrink. You don't want to just splice under-hood wiring, particularly wiring that is close to the hood seam. Water and all...

Try to find some heat-shrink tubing that has a built-in sealant that dries to a hard glaze on the inner surface. www.partsexpress.com sells some I think.


Try not to flake out on this if you want a reliable lighting system.

Don't worry about that ;) When it comes do doing any modifications to my car...I take my time and do it right the first time. Everything is going to be soldered, heat shrunk, zip tied, wire loomed, etc. I'm going to make it look like it came from the factory :D
