Yes I know what coils do lol. I also know factory ignition isnt the "best" but certainly not bad enough to spend the $$$ on a stand alone ignition system. If I did upgrade my ignition, I would just a coil bypass and run an external coil anyway.
Other then Crome, which works fine if you know how to get around its bugs, I dont know what other free ones their are. Hondata, Ectune, and Neptune are all great programs that have all of those features you just mentioned through the factory computer, and have a much more friendly user interface.
Im only "arguing" because you've got the parts to support 1000whp in the ignition and EMS, but your on a stock bottom end.
Hondata s100 dont have near half as much as the new AEM V2 ems! maybe the s300 might have a few of the same features. Those are all still chipped soft ware in the stock ecu where this is a fully programable stanalone ems.
Just because my motor is stock now dont mean a motor that can handle high hp wont ever find its way in there someday! and its always good to leave room for growth, thats why im using the AEM twin fire module, if and when i boost over 15psi on a motor the AEM twin fire will be sufficient. And the fact that the ignition system can handle 1000hp on this setup is always a good thing.
"New Type r head from dealer
New ITR block from dealer
New ITR trans from dealer"
"My last gsr block cost me around $2,000 for a complete rebuild pistons bearings oil water pump gaskets ect. I got my new block for $2,500 complete."
Bought from dealership? The hell? I find this VERY hard to believe. An ITR crank alone (from acuraoemparts, cheaper than dealership) is a grand. I was talking to a dealership out of curiosity awhile ago about buying a new engine and they said it would run up and over 10 grand. Not hating or anything I'm just flustered at the price of this, I feel like if new engines were that cheap Machine shops wouldn't even exist. My rebuild using existing parts and replacing some others is running around $2000 (and trying to stay conservative). To have a new engine for $2500 is mind boggling.
Do a little research you can find em not that hard, back in 2010 lasvegasacura had a few type r heads they discounted on ebay i found, they were $1,575.00 USD total was $1,606.03 shipped.
00 to 01 Acura Integra Type R Cylinder Head $1575.00
I found a few online for a little more but $2,000 is still a great deal. If you order it now from the dealer it will be $2,500+!.
