Yup, and as a worse case option you could always sell the car with a higher asking price since you had just replaced the coils, as that would be a sticking point for an educated buyer.

I believe you are correct on that. I actually want/need to go get one of those for my FD... swap the innards from the 2k one into the housing of the FD starter and have a happily upgraded starter
