No, the X ECU's are configured for the Bosch coils.

you can actually,

you will need to remove the igniter from the stock coil and wire it straight to the microtech,

you need to remove all the igniter off the s4 coil, it becomes a nice small coil when you do this, if you dont remove the igniter you will blow something up,

if in doubt buy the bosch coils

Keep in mind that the LTX is set up to fire four coils, not three like stock. You'll need to use four stock trailing coils, after modification. It's possible, but not for the faint-hearted.
