I would recommend runing an LED as to not risk it. You can pick up a Cyclops pretty affordably and they work well.

I know all about LED's and HID's, and don't want them. I was only asking about a that Halogen.

I apologize for not adressing just Halogens. I would recommend upgrading the wiring to a larger gauge and running a relay thats triggered by the old systems wiring. A kit like this one is what you would want. The housing itself should hold up fine to the higher wattage.
