Alarm/ Starter Help

hi, i have a compustar 2 way alarm/starter (model 2W900FMR ) and am wanting to install it in my 1997 prelude. I went to a shop and asked how much and if it can be done (it was in my auto protege but i reconnected the manual bypass loop so it's usable) and they said it can be used but it needs extra stuff to make it work due to a chip in the key. this is exactly what they sent me does this make sense to anyone or do you think i can go around spending the extra 200 bucks or so on this? do our black keys have a chip in them even?

this is what they sent me:
"Car has immobilizer (chip in key), you need to buy some pieces to get the remote starter going: -either a compustar brain that supports BLADE software + BLADE-AL module + ADS key transponder ring
an ADS-AL + ring add-on kit for your existing compustar.

Either way you will need 2 keys to program it. The BLADE stuff is more reliable and easier to put in but is more expensive. Also the can MAY have multiplex security (meaning arm and disarm done by the same wire) in which case I would rather use the BLADE module to detect automatically)."

any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Alarm/ Starter Help

okay well i dont kno what kind of alarm that is but i had a valet alarm and remote start installed. they put my key in the immobilizer box because yes.
he is right they have a chip in the key that tells the ignition that the key is there.
and i had another key made at the dealer ship for around 35bucks and boom everything is good.
