You can only run a max. of 4 bulbs and 16 feet of bulbs. There's only wiring for 4 bulbs on the 660.

I was reading on the website and saw this -

One ballast can operate any combination, up to 4 lamps, with a total not exceeding 440 Watts.

5 bulbs @ 39w = 195w

that was my next problem how to wire it.

any combination - up to 4 lamps AND not exceeding 440 watts

Their statement does seem a little ambiguous. But it doesn't matter what wattage the lamps are (as long as they don't exceed 440w total) you can only run a max of 4 lamps.
