I have never seen the one pictured.
I have tried to use the Master vibrator that comes in a wooden box and you mount to the dashboard.
On the one I tried, you disable all four coil points and let the Master Vibrator do all the work. The main problem I found is that if the Master quits, the car stops. After a few of those unplanned stops, I went back to the standard four coil system. At least on that system, when one coil stops, you can still drive on 3 cylinders.
