Because all engines which use this system have a simultaneous injection pattern (except the 4A-GE), a G signal is not necessary. The four-toothed pickup is designed to produce a pulse once every 180' of crankshaft rotation, signal timing determined by the position of the distributor in the engine. Distributor position determines Ne signal timing and, therefore, initial timing reference. The 4A-GE engine with VAST, because it uses grouped injection, utilizes a G sensor signal indicating camshaft position so the ECU can properly time each injector group.
