MH base changeroo!

I currently have a 150w MH ballast from a backyard light that I don't use anymore. The problem is that they don't make a 150w 14000k bulb with a mogul base but they do make the with dual end. My question is, can you change the mogul into a Dual End with little modification?

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish. 150w MH only comes in double ended. 175w MH only comes in single ended(mogul). You can't run a 175w bulb with a 150w ballast and you can't run a 150w bulb on a 175w ballast.
