Yeah, I seen the same post on another site..same guy too. He also said you can go vice-versa MH to HPS but need more parts and is a little more complicated.
Just make sure you know what your doing prior to making a modification. Also if your ballast is still under warranty as soon as you open it the warranty is void. So I would not recommend doing it to a brand new ballast.
Just don't fry your self man.

the ballast i use r econo lites build urself type,so its rather cheap To be honest the ballast kit is cheaper than the conversion lamp So its a small gamble so long as I dont burn the house down or shock myself

I did exactly as instructed and it worked well for me. p.s. if you have a store in your area called "Mike's Merchandise" they generally have those switches for less than a dollar. You can pick up the connectors there too. Beware...mikes is a high volume salvage type store but I mention it because....as just about anyone can tell you, all these little trips to home depot of $10 here, $20 there ADD UP......i know its only saving a couple of bucks but this store has all kinds of crap and is good to use as a goto because its sooooo cheap. But then again, it may be a store unique to my area...dunno
