last couple of old hondas i've had used to have those systems installed,
but they had been bypassed simply and successfully - presumably because
they either stopped working or the owners had lost keys, etc. either
way, they appear to be pretty much ineffective since the wiring that it
takes to get them installed can be uninstalled just as easily. i know
it didn't take very long to cut the remnants out of my last one.
as for theft, yes, it's for parts. the f22 engine is a fave for a
cheapo honda hotrod.
