Interrupting the crank sensor is not a good way to go. Some cars, like mine, have both crank and cam sensors that are somewhat redundant, but are also used to make sure the crank and cam are in sync. If you interrupt the crank sensor, the engine will continue running on the cam sensor and will complain about the crank sensor. If you interrupt the cam sensor, the engine will run on wasted spark, revert to batch injection mode and will complain about this, but it will keep running. Plus, you don't want to set a CEL if you don't have to.
