So the wiring wouldn't need replaced? Just end caps and ballast and it would be good to go?

Yup, well... probably have to cut the ends off the wires where the ballasts connect to and replace the plugs with one that will work with the 250w ballast (easy to do)
the plugs will be different brand to brand
