Switching to LEDS

Im switching all my lights to LEDs, except I need to know which flasher/load resistor will work in my 2002 WRX for my turn signals? I should only need two right?

I have LEDs in my license plate bulbs. That's all that I've done. I got them from superbrightleds.com...but, I'd have to find the package they came in to find the bill to remember what exactly I got.

I've only did it because it gives the high end lexus/infiniti/bimmer look. The only difference is that the bulb makes a brighter white on my license plate. Meh...the bulbs have the led resistor built into the bulb. So, there is no need to change anything but the bulb in my set-up.

Have you put in any accent lighting or just replace all the bulbs? Is that including the dash?

I just replaced the bulbs, the 2 map lights and the dome light. Each light has 6 very bright LED's on it. So there is 18 actual lights emitting from the 3 lights. Very bright enough so no need for any accent lighting. Everything else is stock lighting wise, but was looking at reverse lights since I changed the ones in my Legacy and like them.
