hi i've searched but have not been able to find to much info on using a Haltech PS1000 in my 92 eg y8 turbo build. has anybody used Haltech i know its not as popular in the honda community as it is with Toyota & Nissan. I have the complete universal harness with fuse box wiring the car is not an issue for me im more stuck on a possible coil on plug setup.

Very experienced with Haltech, and yes it will work with his car. Coil on plug with that ecu is simple. I recommend using "smart" coils so you can eliminate the need for a seperate igniter.

You should first check that Haltech will support the PS1000 installed in your car. They don't list it as such.
they don't direct support it as in plug and play but they have a universal harness that you can basically wire for anything it's just up to you to set the ecu up after that

Smart coils have igniters built in to them. They require three or four wires. "Dumb" coils, on the other hand require external igniters and will have 2 wires.

D17 coils are smart.

OP, I've used a few Haltechs and they are good. The trigger setup can be a bit painful sometimes. Once you have those settings right, the rest of the stuff is quite nice.

Find the pinout for the coil
Set up a power circuit for all coils parallel using fuse and relay
Ground the coils to the head
Wire the triggers to the haltech's ignition output pins
Change the ignition type in the software to falling, constant charge, and start with 2ms dwell assuming you'll be using D17 coils.

My advice is get the car running first before doing the COP conversion. Number one mistake I see people make with project cars is changing too many things at once without a solid plan on bringing it together.

Used this on a Hyundai Genesis 2014. Made good power like 450whp! Stock engine other than a turbo and exhaust. Cop worked fine, listen to the Albertan. He knows.

Great info I understand your advice with getting it running first but my issue is I have the universal haltech harness with the relay box so I would have to wire it for distributor then rewire it again for cop
