    I would imagine that you could have it done. You would have to have the clutch switch kept on somehow (you know you have to press in the clutch before you start the car, there is a switch that is triggered once it is fully depressed--take a look under your dash and press in the pedal, you should see how the pedal moves and what it contacts) and make sure that you always had your car in neutral (I can't imagine that it would be very funny to put your car thru the garage cause you wanted to remote start). Other than that It should be possible. But I could be wrong.

    thats a really good point, i am sure that will have to do something about the clutsh swiitsh but also when looking around all of the company's including the dealership said that you can not put it on a manual car !!!

    I have a remote start feature on my car as part of the viper alarm. I'm not sure which wire it is, but I can check this afternoon if the weather is decent (I'll need to take apart the dash).

    Basically, what you have to do is complete the circuit. When you press the clutch, you turn on a light switch. Complete that loop and voila! Also, there should be a little toggle switch so that you can turn on and off your remote start feature so whenever you leave you car in gear, turn off the switch. If you have a turbo timer, that will help you remember as well.

    Hopefully I can post some pics or something later.

    Im sure you wont find many places that will install it. As most shops dint wanna be held accountable for any injury or death b/c you left it in gear.

    AVI in MA is a pretty crazy shop. They also have the perfect formula for subaru remote start. They found a sensor to determine if the car is in gear or not. Beyond that feature they also wired it so it wouldn't start if the hood was open and it dies if you press the brake, or drop the ebrake.

    All with my Viper alarm system.

    Not hooking the hood pin up was grounds for termination when I worked for soundtrack, as far as I know there are wires that indicate if gears 1-3 are engaged on the newer Suby's

    i'll jump in here on this yes you can put a remote system on any car. most places won't because they don't want to take the blame when you put your car though a wall. i used to work for best buy installing audio, alarms, and what not. when it comes to installing on a manual you have to bypass the clutch. if you guys want i can post up direct wire here for you guys even help you guys install them over them internet. for 5 years i did install and i can tell you WRX and the STI are the easiest car i have ever done. i have the compustar on mine. and if anyone is looking for one i get them cheap.

    viper is owned by DEI so it has a lifetime protection as long as its installed by an qualifed person. but i have had the 4.5 martix, the new viper, and compustar. and i love the features of the compustar.

    the 2WSS-AS (alarm with remote start) is nice but has the smallest of all screens but has the longest range. the downfalls to it you get one remote, no windsheild paging light, no 2nd car mode. and of course the small screen. as for the 2W900FM-AS (alarm with remote start) is the best of all worlds. large screen, 2nd car mode, windsheild paging, good range the same as the viper, and two remotes (one is two-way and the other is one-way). If you decide to go with a compustar i get them cheap.
