The built-in OEM unit seems to work pretty well...

Try openning the trunk when the doors are locked.

My dealer wouldn't put one in of any brand. Said the electronics in the goat are too sensitive and wouldn't want it messing up anything.

Drive it like ya Stole It

Thursday I'm having a remote-start-equipped Viper installed along with the window module. I've had the same setup in several other cars and don't see any problem with it in the GTO, and neither does my installer.

How can you install a remote start if you have a 6-spd?

2 of the other vehicles were manuals as well. You simply bypass the clutch safety switch. And be sure to leave it in neutral when parked.

you can also wire in a kill switch to the parking brake. That way if the parking brake isn't set, the remote start will not work. I wired up my 5spd 92 eagle talon this way.
