i have been looking at IS engine pics, and i don't see a distributor, like you do in supra 2jzge's. did the 2jzge motor go distributorless when toyota incorporated VVTI into it, or does the IS have a distributor that is hard to see in the pic i have.
i did notice something on the front of one of the cams, that could be a cam position sensor.

BTW - I had a 4 cyl motorcycle with two coils, and no "distributor".

Basically it fired two plugs at once, although one of them was triggering a piston which was not ready for the "power stroke", but it didn't really hurt anything (perhaps a bit of extra wear on the spark plugs).
