    I've installed these before but it's been about 20 years since I've done my last one and that was before all this complication with chip encoded key's etc. I do wiring all day at at my job and I am not afraid that I won't be able to do it but just wondering what I may look into. By the way, I'm looking into the Viper 5101 I believe. Thanks in advance

    Bump, maybe a mod can move this to the audio/security thread since I posted it in the wrong spot as usual:p

    I've done it. It's not that hard if you've done it before. The only addition is the immobilizer which you just wire an immobilizer bypass in. You can use a universal one where you keep the key in a box or you can get one where it'll store the immobilizer code instead of the key.
