    I am running a sequential wiring harness on my 02 GT. I am not running LED lights, everything is incandescent.

    That said, I am looking for a flasher relay to slow things down. I do not want to pay $50 for a flasher relay. In my mind there has to be a flasher relay on a parts store shelf that works. A part number would be great.

    I'm not sure I trust myself to try soldering the cap in. I haven't messed with any relays, so inhave no clue what I'm doing.

    The Novita EP27 should work Aaron. It's like $15 at Advanced Auto.

    It's really easy to do. Here's a picture of my stock flasher that I modded with a 4.7 uF capacitor that I bought online for $2. 20180323_165113.jpeg

    I don't like to mess with electronics that I'm not familiar with. With my luck that one relay would burn the car down.

    Bump in case someone has a sequential flasher they would like to get rid of.

    @HudsonFalcon , the EP27 works great for LEDs, but it doesn't slow down the length of time the relay makes contact for sequential lights. The guy at the store counter let me try one. He was curious too.

    There has to a generic relay cheaper than the $50 some sites charge.

    Do you know if this (4.7 uF capacitor) slows it down more than the one you can buy? I find it still flashes too fast.

    I have the 4.7 uF capacitor and I compared it to videos online with the Raxiom flasher relay and the 4.7 uF capacitor is slightly faster, but not by much at all.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread on this, I'm going to try the 4.7 uF capacitor in the original flasher, a very easy mod and do a 1 minute count on both the Raxiom I have and the modded flasher.
