Default LED turn signal problem

I just installed some led bulbs for the front turn signals, and i get a lamp out and they barely flash. I read up on this and found that installing a 6ohm 50watt resistor on each side works but the resistors gets hot (which i dont like). I checked online and found a LED turn signal relay, which replaces the stock relay. Has anyone ever used one of those and does it actually work?

if you are worried about the resistor getting hot there is a heat block you can put the resistor in, $1.00 at any radio shack. The resistor getting hot is not a problem, they do not get so hot as to melt anything? They are used in every LED application, one way or another...

You can use a higher watt resistor with a heat sink that will work also...
