Default would this work, and would it hurt your car?

seeing every now and then a car is stolen here, and it seems an sti was stolen (which i hope the owner gets his car back in one piece) recently from an apartment complex. seeing you need the fuel pump to pump gas, what if you wired in a switch that would be mounted somewhere inside the cabin. what you would need to do is turn power on to the fuel pump in order to drive the car more then a few yards. now if the car runs out of gas, is it hard on a turbo car? i think something like this might give the owner a chance to save his car from bieng stolen... do any of you think something like this would work?

The Cobb Access Port has an anti theft mode on it that cuts the fuel.

Yes, you can install a relay and switch to turn off the fuel pump. You wouldn't want to mount it near the drivers seat however, thieves know to look near drivers seats for killswitches.

I had a similar setup on my 82 Rx7. Mainly to prevent fuel leaks on the GSL-SE 13B Motor, but it worked for anti theft at least once.

Problem w/ that is if the theif is somewhat smart, all they have to do is unplug the battery to reset the ECU. Then your ECU will lose that realtime flash unless you decide to reflash your ECU w/ that anti-theft mode. But then there is that time issue and the flashlife of your ECU.

I have thought about using a remote switch, that is switched on/off by a key fob. You take the ability to switch the pump on with you.

Back in high school I had a pushbutton switch mounted in my glovebox of my rabbit then wired to the fuel pump wires on the back side of the fuse box. Make sure you use a relay as the fuel pump has some amps associated with it. Good luck figuring out how to immobilize that! It's easy to do....just don't forget you cut the pump when you get back in your car.

I had a fuel cut on my FD both for theft and flooding issues.

that might be hard to do since the key fob will be hanging from the steering column.

I've got one of those big red-keyed switches to lock out the starter in my car. Damned if I ever use it though.

I don't think they'll even get it started. Doesn't the fp pressurize the system when you turn the ignition? But if a thief did get it started, they won't build enough positive pressure in the the few feet they'll go to hurt your engine. It'll be just like running out of gas off boost.
