I have an 87 Turbo Supra, and my ignitor went bad, and I am still using the factory distributor. Could I just replace it with an MSD 6A ignition system? Does it have an ignitor in it?

No the car will not run without the factory ignitor in place and working properly. The ECU requires an ignition signal from the ignitor to fire the injectors and control the fuel maps and all. The tach signal from the MSD will not do it, also the ignition timing will not work either as this is controlled by the ECU through the Ignitor. Try www.supraforums.com if you can't locate a used ignitor locally.
