Diode Dynamics Lighting Tech 101: Research Automotive Lighting Technology
 


At Diode Dynamics, we want our fellow Mitsubishi Evo X enthusiasts to be educated on automotive lighting products, so that they know they are purchasing the best products on the market. We have devoted this portion of our website to doing just that. Here you'll find information on different automotive lighting technologies, how they work and common misconceptions you'll see while shopping for your vehicle. We hope you enjoy learning all about lighting!



Any questions? Email us at [email protected] or call: (314) 205-3033

What would be the best way to get angel eyes on an evo?

You will have to put the housings in an oven, heat them up, separate the lens, mount the rings using a small amount of clear adhesive, and re-seal them using automotive rubber butyl

We will have a DIY in the future, along with an EvoX specific halo kit :thumbup:

Do you have LED low beam lights for the 2013 EVO X GSR with SSS package. The ebay ones I had stopped working after a week

LEDs have come a long way in the past few years, but there currently aren't any designs out there that will be as reliable as a quality HID conversion kit, while still providing enough usable light output.

Most of the options out there have a cooling fan, which typically fails within the first few weeks. Also, the vendors selling these LED low-beam replacements market them with absurd lumen output ratings. I've seen a vendor claim 9,000 lumens from an LED low-beam replacement (OEM HIDs produce around 3,200 lumens).

We are working on a few designs for LED low-beams, but stick with a quality HID conversion kit

Sorry I meant daytime running lamps in LED :nerd:

We've had a local customer install our LEDs in his DRL location, but it may require slight modifications IIRC

I will have more information on them soon once we get another Evo X in our new studio for comparison shots

What slight modifications are we talking about, I need to replace my DRL harnesses anyway. Could you let me know here or PM me. I am interested in running your guys DRL's.

Apparently the connector just needed to be re-pinned. We will have a write up once we get another Evo X in
