I do not believe any shop will install on standards due to liability.

However it would be possible if you used a relay to bypass the clutch safetly switch.

so all that would basicaly be needed is to bypass the clutch safety switch. and assuming this would most likely be done in a driveway instead of a shop this is then possible?

Get this done professionally!!! No room for error on a manual setup. And get used to using the parking brake, as the car will have to be in neutral to use the remote starter....

Nah, you can leave it in gear, hence the clutch safety switch.
