May work for you...

But I definitely have some sputtering issues sometimes after killing the fuel pump.

Makes sense, kill the pressure in the fuel line and there'll still be some residual pressure in the lines that will have to be released by the injectors. Resulting in injectors firing after the switch is thrown. More so if the gas pedal isn't depressed (engine idling) when the switch is thrown.
