5vzfe megasquirt question

Hi im in the process of doing a 3.4 turbo swap into my 93 4runner using a megasquirt ms3x version 3.0 for engine management.
the question I have is can I control the stock coils directly with the megasquirt or do I need the igniter as well?

Re: 5vzfe megasquirt question

The Megasquirt installations discussed here on CT have usually been 2RZ's, and I'm not sure whether 2RZ and 5VZ ignition issues (with the Megasquirt) are the same.

The one 5VZ-specific issue for which I found anything related to whether or not a Megasquirt setup could handle using either 3 or 6 coils (both of which were stock at one or another time on Tacomas from 1995.5 - 2004). I could find where the issue was noted, but I couldn't find a definite answer, much less a field report verifying either or both situations.
