[DML] Re: Pre-pressurizing oil before cold start:

You can keep the car from starting by lifting the inertia switch 
under the dash (opens fuel pump ground) or removing the fuel pump 
fuse. Grounding out the ignition is not a good idea on most modern 
cars. You could also disconnect the smaller wires on the coil, but 
shutting off the fuel is preferable (then you won't flood it either).
