100w LED high beams

Well i am going to try to retro fit some 100W LED's for my high beams. Each light puts out about 7000 lumens. So with 2 thats 14000 lumens, which is equal to about 5 sets of HID's.

The only problem is cooling them. You have to put a medium sized computer heatsink to keep them cool. Not sure what or where or how i will mount a heatsink but hopefully i can get this to work.

1. Make sure your wiring harness can handle that. I dont
believe the system was designed to deliver 100W, but I could
be wrong.

2. Are you *sure* they are outputting 7000 Lumens and
not 7000K in temp color? I've been looking at some of these
and I havent run across a set that claimed 7000 lumens output,
just 7000K color temp.

3. Would you really need cooling on the HighBeams? I rarely have my
highbeams on for more than 5-15 secs at a time and typically less.

Post the results. I'm considering the exact same thing. 100W LED highbeams
with a 7000K color temp to better match the 8000K HIDs I recently installed.

Do they make LEDs that powerful? Where do I get some? Maybe water cooling will do the trick.

Here is a link to a place that has specs on the lights. I am going to do my own wiring harness(just using high beam housing), and you also need a driver because they require about 32 volts, at about 3000mA.

Yes keep us posed,
My question is why not a 55W LED so you don't need to add aftermarket wiring. Not quite as bright but still awesome.
