I don't think EDIS8 will work at all for your 4 cylinder. It will fire a coil every 90 crank degrees instead of the 180 degrees that you need for your engine. The stock setup fires both intake and exhaust spark plugs at the same time. I would use a Microsquirt and mirror the two outputs to four coil drivers. I used Subaru igniters and coils that are readily available at the junkyard.
