thats, what i did with my first start-stop-mod. it was not so good for me. the car tends to higher idle sometimes. if i killed it, the fuel was injected, as long as the engine was reving. in these moments quiet a bit longer, than useualy. the restart was so bad, that i didn´t use the killswitch above 1000 rpm.
on the other hand, was a restart after kill unter 1000 rpm literally immediadly.

doing a fuel cut, gives some more benefits. you can warm up with less fuel or extend the engine brake. here´s a vid about it.



what i recommend is, put the kill switch to the same side, as the gearknob is! that was the biggest improvment to the first car.
