Anybody done a fuel cutoff switch on '97 Civic (Gen. 6)

I want to put a fuel cutoff switch in my Gen 6 Civic HX. It's a '97.

Has anybody done a fuel cutoff on that generation Civic?
Where did you cut in to disable it?

I know how to use a good quality relay to open/close the circuit - what I don't know is where to get at the 12V (constant) power to the injectors.

The injector grounds are what is rapidly cycled on/off by the computer on this car.

Currently getting +/- 50 mpg in fall weather. EPA is 31/39 so not too shabby. WAI, fuel cutoff switch, full belly pan, smooth wheel covers.

Now driving '97 Civic HX; tires ~ 50 psi. '89 Volvo 240 = semi-retired.

I put a fuel cut of switch in my HX. Instead of cutting out the injectors I cut out the fuel pump. It works perfect. This also acts as a anti theft mechanism

I put the switch in one of the four inserts on the center counsel
