Default Do I need an Ignitor for full Standalone MS?

Hi Guys

I am still in the process of putting in my MS, as I only get to work on it when I am down at the inlaws house (couple of hours by plane)

Anyways, in this thread here I put up a pic of my full standalone diagram. "Full", as in I have completely re-wired an old 1979 323 with a MX5 engine.
Where I am currently getting confused is this. Everyone refers to burning ignitors, from what I know this here is an ignitor. So do people mean ignitors or coils, or both?

In the above thread I have wired this ignitor into the MS circuit. Do I need this? or will MS be replacing this part of the engine?

Cheers

MS has nothing to do with the ignitor for your coils. If you are using stock 1.6 coils, you still need that.

well...you could run a pair of Bosch BIP373 coil drivers and rewire the coilpack...

if you're going to use the miata coilpack, they need an ignitor to work.

When you build the ms make sure you use joe's improved spark output drivers and you won't have any problem with burning them up.
