Help! Viper Remote start kit

I'll pay anyone who knows how to hook up a Viper Remote Start kit for my GT 5 speed. Everthing is already in and hooked up as far as the security and stuff. I just need to know if any of you guys can do it cause none of the vehicle install places around here will help.

How are you going to make it safe for a manual since the Viper product is not designed to work on manual?
Peripheral NSS?
IR?
Other?
Just curious. Should've bought a Clifford G4 or G5 instead.

all you have to do is bypass the clutch off the alarm... you just cant put it in gear and try to start the car.

now thatd be a funny thing to watch

Had to say this, it is not the alarm's fault - no matter what brand. I don't know of anyone that'll install a remote start system on a car w/ manual transmissions. I often though I could handle it, but the older I get the more I realize that it is a recipe for disaster.

The best Idea for safety reasons is to use the e-brake for the "ready to start" trigger...That way when you park the car, if the e-brake isn't engaged the remote start won't work, and if you remember to set the brake you can remember to leave the car in neutral...Also, if the car tries to lurch forward in most cases the e-brake can hold it still (this can ruin the starter though)...That's how I've done them in the past...

I install them on cars with manual transmissions all the time. However, the product I use (Clifford Intellistart4) is designed to work on cars with manual transmissions and is safe.

We will not install them like the example above. People do forget and cars, buildings, airplanes, etc are damaged because of the above type of installation. The E-brake must be engaged but if the exit procedure is not followed, the car will not attempt to start.

This does not work well, this logic caused the damage to the Vette I mentioned above.

It does not seem to mention that it is compatible with manual transmissions it only mentions automatic transmissions.

See the owner's manual below. The first picture shows the front side of the Intellistart4 owner's manual. Read the third line up from the bottom of the second picture. The third picture shows the backside of the Intellistart4 owner's manual.
