So should I get the bulbs off TRS? Or go somewhere else?
I don't know what I want.. I know I want 6k and preferably 55W (or 70W if possible?)
Definitely get the bulbs off of TRS. 55w is too high for MH1s. People have burned the bowls and bubbled the chrome with 55w kits. MH1s with 35w ballasts will still be easily twice to three times the light output of halogens.

Oh and cool story. When my lights flicker, they flicker through the entire spectrum. It is entirely badass when you see it on glass buildings or the backs of white cars.
AA Stg2+ 325xiA? Are you stupid? Maybe a little.
I can program cars fo' freeee near Salt Lake City. PM for details.
