I don't think so, but just don't leave it in gear, and make sure there is no interference with the built-in immobilizer, especially if you install a turbo timer.
I know my friend's girl did that once and lets just say they arent together anymore. Dude your a wealth of information. I feel like I am learning all over again. When I got my tiburon I went thru a period when I didnt know anything. By the end I knew the car inside and out. I want say thanks for looking out for a newbie :thumb:

Also with the remote start systems, you don't have to use the clutch to start the car, I have heard this is better for the main bearings and some other vital parts of the motor. It is supposed to be less wear and tear during startup.

I don't use the clutch to start my car either. All you have to do is disconnect the switch, which is a white connector just above the clutch pedal.

I would be interested in hearing the rational for less wear when not using the clutch. it would seem to me to be the opposite although the difference couldn't amount to much. in the one case the motor is turning over part of the transmission and in the other it isn't.

now a pre oiler might save some wear and tear

I'm not sure there was a big debate on dsmtuners about it and something was brought up about saving the bearings. Like i said I had heard that so, I was just throwing in another opinion about it.

Pushing in the clutch puts and axil load on the crank shaft during start up before pressurized oil is supplied to the bearings. This can lead to wear on the thrust bearing.
