You should read up on how OEM go about shutting down cylinders for economy, it's a bit more involved than just stoping fuel!
You don't need to stop the spark, firing into a dry cylinder won't cause any harm or loss.
You need to find a way to decompress that cyl else you will lose all your savings in pumping loses
Thank you for your response.
I have researched how chevy did their v8 down to 4 cylinders during certain driving condition. That is what made me start thinking about doing this project.
Your right, the spark would not be as important. My current car, during deceleration and DFCO occurs. Spark continues and only fuel is cut off. There is no issue with spark occuring during that time.
I have already thought about the cylinder and valve train issues. I have a plan for that, not 100% sure if it will work, but
if i can't get the fuel issue worked out, the engine issue won't matter. This is herdle that I currently at.
I could always use carbs on it, but then I would loose control over the fuel system.
