    So is there a way to install an ignition kill switch?

    I just want to put a basic switch (like something from the hardware store) on the ignition wire so that the car won't start without me flipping it (hidden under the dash or somewhere out of sight). I have the alarm upgrade but I want something a little more concrete than that.

    Anyone know which wire to put this on?

    Ditto the starter wire. If you want to be really sneaky... get a series of switches and relays, that require multiple switches to turn on before the car can start. Why do one, when for just a little more you can have almost failsafe, and trick custom for just a little more. You should add a starter button to spice it up at the end as well. We've done setups with multiple ghost switches, and keyless starters on many vehicles at CC. It's pretty easy on WRX's and Sti's. The cool thing is that in order for the starter button to work, you have to press a proper sequence of ghost switches before a final relay allows the starter to work.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    A starter button would be tight, but as far as ghost switches...I'd rather just keep it to one or two well hidden switches for simplicity. How hard is it to put them on the starter wire? I'll PM you if I need more in depth info.
