I have to say, the PGM-FI system on my '90 Accord is far better than a lot of newer vehicles I've driven. Only the A/C toggle makes any appreciable change in the idle, and then only for a fraction of a second. The fact that I can crank the steering wheel as fast as possible and the idle doesn't even bobble bests even my OBD-II '96 Ford Ranger.

Is there anything in there that indicates a sensor that I can interrupt that will kill the engine instantly without either powering off the computer or triggering the Check Engine light?
