How much brighter do those towers actually make the DRLs?side markers are 194 (same as corner headlight, map light, and others), fog is 9145 and/or H10, and DRL is 3157 (same as reverse light).
now i said the DRL is the same as the reverse light, but where i used the 25led Matrix bulb for the reverse, i used an SMD LED tower for my DRL.. similar to this
in order for it to not hyperblink (led makes the car think a bulb is burnt out due to low current draw) you have to simple splice in a resistor for each bulb. just dont use T-taps like it shows in the picture
one more question on that...will i need load resistors for the side marker lights as well? Don't they blink with the blinker?nope, only if you intend on using LEDs in your DRL/ front turn signal. and even then you dont have to, you will just have 'hyper blink' where it blinks really fast to indicate a light is burnt out (it wont actually be burnt out though). i bought a resistor kit on ebay for about $7 so it not expensive and it is easy enough to do.
