...and the Integra coils fit? Did they have the same number of wires?

Did you try starting it in neutral? And is the fuel pump priming?

(PS- coils almost never fail in sets. I've never seen it happen myself)

Turn the key to the "on" position and listen for the "bzzzzt" noise coming from the back of the car.

Okay, so your fuel pump is priming. Next, see if you're getting spark.

Pull one of the plugs, plug it back into the coil, and ground the body or tip of the plug to the engine block, then crank the engine to see if you get the plug to spark. If the plug's wet from fuel, let it dry first before doing so.

One does not necessarily mean the other. But if you have spark and there's fuel on the plug, it may ignite....which is why you want the plug to dry out as a safety precaution.

Check your coolant level. If you have low coolant, it will cause the coolant temp sensor not to read and cause a choppy idle just like in the video.
