Default 55w HID?

I have a 04.5 ram 2500 with the dreaded canbus system. I have changed my headlights to a dual headlight setup. I am currently running a 35w hid kit in the projectors with the capacitor trick to prevent flicker and the bulb out. It worked great for about 2 weeks and now the right is flicker for about 3 minutes before it will ignite and stay on. If I upgrade to a 55w kit will I still have the same errors with the canbus system? What would be a good 55w setup? I called vvme and they were no help in reference to their 55w set up. Any ideas or solutions would be helpful. Thank you.

They make Ballasts with everything installed to help with canbus problems. I got my kit from theretrofitsource.com and their 50W ballast has that installed. I haven't had a single problem.
