You shouldn't need any resistors to make LED turn signals work, just replace the thermal flasher relay with an electronic one. They're cheap and readily available. On my 2005 Civic, the fuse panel with the relay was the one beneath the steering column and to the right; might be in a similar place on the Insight.

I did this on the Viper, which made me decide not to do it on another car (and I never will again--the Prius is the first car I've owned that has complete LED dash lighting, and I think everything does these days). Be aware that some warning light circuits read the bulb resistance and will probably throw a code if they think the bulbs are out.
