If your headlights seem dangerously dim, you are not alone. All 1986-91 Vanagons sold in North America came from the factory with barely adequate 55/60W outboard bulbs (the larger low beam lenses). This kit includes new high efficiency 55W bulbs for the inner lights. These bulbs put out 50% more light than the standard 55W bulbs without increasing the current draw! Additionally, they use a smaller, tighter filament that better utilizes the reflector for a more useful beam pattern. Overall, the high beam circuit increases from 230W to 310W, creating a marked increase in output while still maintaining a good safety margin for the aging wiring (especially when prolonged high beams are required). Coupled with the additional increase in useful output that you get from the high efficiency bulbs, and your headlights have never performed better!
