I'll draw something up and post it.
For the twin plug you can't drive both sparkplugs in the same cylinder with the same coil effectively so unless you go with 12 coils, you can't do sequential. I don't know if the MS-II can run 6 coils without major firmware changes. MS-III can but is not quite available yet and I don't think it will fire 2 coils simultaneously so the coil signal will have to be split to control 2 3-channel ignitors in parallel for wasted spark or 12 CNP/COP running from 6 output channels for true sequential.. My plan is to upgrade to MS-III and run sequential injection when available. At that point I may switch over to direct coil control although I don't know if the output signal is strong enough to be split to parallel ignitor/coils.
