Danny, The AIC is a different type and is not compatible.It is a motor type vs. a solenoid type like you and I have. The LH unit which works with it is programmed to run the motor one way then the other. Yours is programmed to change the duty cycle on the solenoid. DI cassette is about $300.00 US. Take care to keep your plugs gapped and use the correct NGK only plugs to ensure long life, but you know this already. KeithG btw. the silvia is the best coffee purchase I have yet made.
