The reason why most people don't recommend putting a remote start on a manual is that usually people take short cuts and bypass the clutch switch instead of ensuring that the car is in neutral with the handbrake applied, which would allow the car to start in gear and for higher powered cars like a v8 mustang it would have enough torque to crawl forward into things at idle without stalling.

Now if its wired so that it won't start with the car in gear remotely then that might be ok, but enough people did it the wrong way to draw fire to it here afaik.
