Don't do it! I did run 70 watt halogen low beam for a while, until I finally decided the only real way to gain was to put in HID low. I also ran an 85 watt high beam with no undesireable results, but there were a few damaged lens/reflectors when people tried to use 100 watt bulbs. The heat drives plasticizers out of the plastic, "fogging" the lens and reflector, and almost impossible to clean it. The added amperage has also damaged a couple of connectors because of overheating it they do not make a good connection.
Save your money for HID low beam, the only really good answer.
