you cannot install the projectors without cutting the back. its simply bigger. if you dont want to cut it just throw an hid kit in stock housing and call it a day. also for moisture, after you are dont with what ever you were doing with the headlight, put some fresh silicone between the lens and the housing. bake it in the oven [like all diy say] and it will be air/moisture tight.

yeah man...even if you don't cut the housing and the projector fits, the projector will mostly be sticking out in the back too much and you won't be able to mount it. like scrid3r said either cut the housing or install an HID kit.

you will have to cut the reflector headlight, but you don't have to cut the back of your actual headlights if you use a small projector like the TSX one.
