It's probably not very

It's probably not very advisable to completely shut down an engine when a lean condition occurs as you run the risk of not being able to control your vehicle or being run into by other vehicles if on a track, etc.  A safer alternative would probably be to trigger a limiter or boost cut function or even a warning light.  How the failsafe output function is utilized is up to the end user to decide and will depend on the application they're working with.  Some cars have an input that will force trigger limp mode.  Your car may or many not have this ability but it's up to you to determine this.

The gray wire should tap onto the wire the has a variable 0-12v or 12-0v voltage signal when adjusting the dimmer on your dash.  You'll need to get a voltmeter to see which wire this is.

According to the pin out you linked to, pin 10 is the tach signal wire.
