I was just wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to install a remote starter on a car with a manual transmission?

I assume I'd have to always leave it in neutral, so the car didn't jump when started, but typically the clutch needs to be depressed to start the car.

Yes, it is possible. I remember hearing about someone that had it, they had to 'arm' it before they left their car or it wouldn't work. I think it did that as sort of a reminder to not leave it in gear.

Yes you can do that. It's a risk, since this method will always start the car regardless of the gear (no two ways around it as far as I know). You have to bypass the clutch position sensor so that the computer thinks the clutch is always depressed. It's been done before, but I've also had a friend launch his Prelude through his garage door
