there is a huge difference between swapping out your incandescent bulb to a led bulb compared to having an actual led from the company,
in my car i swaped the tail light bulbs with leds and within 2 days i swaped them back to incandescent. simply because the led bulbs were not bright. i then bought an actual led tail light housing for the car and compared it to the stock incandescent tail and boy oh boy, were the new led tails bright!
long story short, replacing an incandescent bulb with a led bulb will lower the output. but getting an actual led brake/turn signal is much better
