Putting 130 h3 bulbs in hella 500

My brother backed into my truck last night which trashed my hellas so ill be getting some new ones in the coming weeks.

i really want KCs but dont have the money to get the slimlites which are 100w and 130w. So I was curious if it would be safe to put either 100w H3s or 130w H3s into the hellas. id obviously upgrade the wiring as well as the relay and fuse but my main concern is the fact that hellas are plastic in the back. im not really sure how much more heat theyll put out so i figured id ask before i went down to summit and picked up some new bulbs.

I'm 90% sure im going to do the same. they are REALLY cheap on eBay. like $16 for the four 130w for my lights. mine are only $11ea from Northern tool, they aren't the best lights in the world. but for my budget, they look and work well enough. I think a +120w upgrade to the whole system would be worth while.
