alot of 5spd starters reqiure you to pull the e-break, push the unlock button, take the key out (car still runs), then push the lock button to shut off the car and then its all set. this way your car cant be in gear cause your not in your car and its still running. also if you going to get a starter/alarm system, spend the extra money and get a unit with a 2-way remote, trust me, theres nothing worse then going to get in you car and realizing that it didnt start. my girlfriend just got one and im going to get mine ripped out and get the same one put in my car when i get the cash. also something to know for perfomance guys, some starters have a few seconds of delay time to prime the fuel system before it cranks, my cliffard setup doesnt. this is now a big problem cause my link+ ecu takes about 2 seconds before it powers up the fuel pump so my car takes 2 trys to start in the summer (i can only emagine how bad its going to be now that its winter). oh and as for installing a starter yourself, i did mine in my van and it was a bitch to do, mostly cause the wires were all different colors then they were supposed to be and its just a really uncomfortable position to work in but it is doable with minor wiring knowleage. just expect to swear the whole way through it and bitch that you should have just paid someone a couple hundred bucks to do it instead (this is what i did)
