My saturn didn't have a real camshaft sensor, so I tried the crankshaft sensor and it worked without a hitch.

I tried the camshaft sensor on the metro after trying other schemes. It also worked flawlessly. It is also tbi, as well as using a distributor. Dunno if that matters.

This is empirical evidence. I do not know every nuance of every car, and for all I know some cars might complain if you interrupt the injector or ignition circuit for that matter. I know the saturn would throw a code if you left the FI fuse interrupted for too long, and that the metro would run on if you killed just the fuel.

Edit: yup metrompg, the two wires coming out of the distributor, just interrupt one of them with a nc momentary contact switch (micro). It kills ignition and fuel at the same time and does not throw any codes.
