Default Stock Ecu, COPs, VB921s?

does anyone know of a reason why a simple circuit including vb921s couldn't be used to run a set of intrepid COPs with the stock ECU and in the near future a MS?

EDIT* I should have posted this in he MS forum where people know what a vb921 is....

My ideology here is that I'd like a stronger spark and something more convenient to work with than the stock coil packs which are expensive, difficult to remove (big hands don't reach the lower bolt easily), and rather weak. Since the COPs don't have an integrated igniter I figured I could use VB921 output drivers (same as used in the MS if you use onboard igniter option) in an aluminum structure as a heat sink and just plug that in between the stock wiring and the COPs. This way When I swap to MS I have better spark and the ability to switch back to the stock ECU when necessary.

Do you guys think this would work? Do the COPs require less dwell time than the stock coils (because if the dwell is too high they'll toast)? Anyone?
