Question MS1v3 why leave q6,q8 out?

As quoted from Post 18 of Kags buildup:

Ecugrad: "Ok, now I am home and have my MS infront of me. I dont know why in the hell I didnt install Q16? I will."

Kags: "I think you need Q16 for ms2, I dont think it hurts having it, but dont think its absolutly needed for ms1 w/ msns."

Ecugrad: "Why do we leave Q6 and Q8 out?"

Kags: "They apperantly lower the voltage too much to fire the coil if you leave them in..."

.............

Um so, are we sure about this? I have seen absolutely nothing about this anywhere else (granted i havnt looked around the Msefi forums much)?

It's possible to make it work while leaving Q6 and 8 in. Our version of the installation directions leave them in, and we've been using it on our Miata test mule with no trouble. Many output circuits can be built several different ways.

Yeah pick one version of the mod, not both. I was confused about this as well.
