If you want, you can also loosen the cables just alittle aswell...
I've already disconnected the resistor and the DRLs are now non-functional.

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Disconnect the DRL resistor in the engine compartment.

Piece of cake, DRLs are now disabled. Should I want to reactivate them (I doubt it) then all I have to do is reconnect the plug.
It would be neat if you or a pal had a ScanGauge. You might be able to see a before/after LOD value change when you are idling. Just a thought.

Your math is correct. 4476 watts is 6 hp. 90 watts is about 1/12 hp, or 2% of 6 hp, not 20% of 6.
I've corrected my post #7.
