Holley has a line, I think someone on the forum mentioned them a while back and I saved the link

I ordered a set for a buddy, I have heard good things
I have those same outer bulbs as my high beams. Work great, but RIP FM radio reception.
I never really listen to the radio plus I used a cheater since mine has an antenna delete so figure reception is sucky to begin with

Yeah, best guess is they are using a poorly designed switch mode power supply circuit that turns the headlight wiring into an antenna for the noise coming out of the power supply. Doesn't effect me as I primarily use XM in the Pontiac, but I cant recommend them to anyone simply because if that glaring of a design defect is okay to the manufacturer, what other issues were also considered okay.

Exactly. And I have a nice Delco radio with good reception and I wouldn't want to trash that. I do enjoy my FM radio.

There are many LED headlights on the market that are very well built and at the right price. It's worth noting that you have to install these bulbs properly. Pointing them at the airplane is definitely not a good idea.

Second the motion to shop RockAuto. They are slowly cleaning out the old parts houses and you can get deals if you check in regularly. Old stock headlight bulbs don't age like fan belts and tires.

The smaller, four headlight system uses H4656 outers and H4651 inners (high beam only).

The larger, two-headlight system uses H6054 lamps.
