Seems worth the ~$350 to just get a CompuStar system ( http://www.compustar.org/products/1WFM.html ) that is designed for manual transmission vehicles and has very innovative failsafes. That price is including installtion. I got the 2WFM for $500. Love it.
The thing I don't like about these systems that are designed for manuals is that you have to go through a bizarre sequence every time you get out of the car if you want the remote start to work next time. With DEI, it's always there. And with Subaru, since they were kind enough to provide a wire indicating whether the tranny is in gear or not, it is every bit as safe as the Compustar and Aladdin, provided it was hooked up as I mentioned.
And as far as cost, it was less than the Compustar.
