    Now i believe i have everything spliced in and hooked up correctly, but its not pronounced as most of the videos i seen. Im not sure if its because im standing to close in my garage or what? What you thiink??

    With Stock Flasher outside- http://youtu.be/MBhrpKa_FiU ( this video is sideways but i edited to show correct which might take a few minutes to update)

    With slower Modified flasher- http://youtu.be/e6SjD--exEs

    :( Do LEDS make the sequential look better? Right now i have the normal halogen bulbs in.

    I got $70 in this sequential crap and it doesnt look good as most i see. I mean in the video it looks sequentials KIND OF but from behind i car its hard to tell to be honest. From behind it just looks like a normal on and off flash. Is that normal if you stand right behind the bumper with sequentials?

    The second video seems right to me... What videos are you comparing it to?
    I have a flasher relay in my car and my sequentials aren't anywhere near that slow. I wish they where lol

    They look perfect man! When the sequentials are fast and quick, its kinda blah to me. When they're slower, you can get the full effect that it is actually moving in sequence.

    The leds will change the impedance of the circuit and cause them to flash differently. As for if they look better, do you expect anyone else to notice they are leds and comment? No one will really ever know except you, I would save the cash and go with the standard bulbs. Everyone gets all excited about leds as if they are some kind of pixie dust or add hp to your car. They are just lights people...

    Did you order the american muscle one? I went to the cheaper $30 flasher instead of the $50 one on AM.

    Just found this video. It just seems the LED make the lights look more pronounced than the stock type- Go to 1:30 and watch as he changes the turn signal. Left is LED and right is stock bulbs- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cowlIxtkduE

    Another mustang and looks better IMO-

    LED- Looks bad ass ---> http://youtu.be/_OCYgg8lHj4?t=4m2s DAT PRICE TAG!! $224 is not nice.

    And below is a stock bulb that looks alittle better

    Just has me thinking LED's might make them look more like the CJ pony lights

    Where'd you get your flasher?
    I got mine off superbrightLEDs. Didn't really notice any difference between stock and that one..

    Looker at the ones on superbright. I dont think those slow down the flash one bit.
    You need something like this
    http://autotrix.net/Product-Modified-Mustang-Turn-Signal-Flasher_21.aspx

    or

    http://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-signal-relay-9604.html

    Or

    $2 and a solder gun you can slow down how slow you want.
    http://mustangforums.com/forum/4-6l...-to-slow-down-sequential-tail-light-rate.html

    To slow them down correctly.

    I was able to get a video of the dash with the flasher installed. There is an annoying pause when you first flick the turn flicker than it starts flashing.

    Even the first one seems a little off.
    I ordered the plug in kit from AM, didn't use a flasher because I am seeing how I like being extra special (pun intended)
    But I got it on sale with my discount as well. So meh.
    But I may eventually anyway, my hazards are screwy, and my relay is the culprit. But haven't gotten on to it, as I don't use them.

    But here is my plug in setup.

    Don't hate on my crap flip phone haha.
    But it's a little fast, but still has the sequential element. I probably will get the relay though.

    These are mine, regular bulbs, with Axiom-thingy that slows the sequentials down.
