Ehh...if you were a good enough lockpicker to turn the key cylinder without a key you could do that...according to a tutorial from one of my marine buddies who used to steal cars for fun that's more work than is necessary on most older cars: the key cylinder is easy enough to just remove entirely.

Assuming your typical amateur thief (the only type who's going to be stopped by an immobilizer) does that, the IPC or BCM isn't going to ever receive an R-code and the car won't start.

most GM with passlock 2 first generation (1998 to 2002) for trucks and (2000 to 2004) for cars, can be bypassed with  2 diodes very easily.

Not sure what you're referring to jmroussel - where would you connect the diodes to in order to bypass Passlock 2?

any one famiiliar with the relay style of bypassing transponder? if so my question is do you think its easier to steal the car with the relay setup ? rather than the module?

immigrants are like sperm millions get in but only one works.

It depends on how well the key is hidden - it's obviously a lot easier to conceal a key inside a black box than one in the open, with wires plainly wrapped around it.
If the key could be well concealed and relatively hard to get at, and the wires to it look relatively close to the OEM wiring, it wouldn't be a big deal.
IMHO the best solution is to avoid the issue entirely by using a bypass that doesn't require a key.
