So looking further into LED's I am pretty sure I will be going to get some ecoxotic paranormal led's and do a retrofit. Like I said by the end of the year I should at least be starting this. More info coming soon

You don't mean stunner strips right? You mean the actual light strips? My lfs has 3 50/50 and 2 whites. I would say its comparable to a 14k light.
