well yes you can install a push button start and bypass the "needing a key" part by running power wire to push button instead of the ignition "key"

i think it would take alotta work to install the button as it needs to temporaily take as much power as possible to create a spark (am i wrong here?)

i could be wrong but would it not be the same as it would be to bypass the ignition cylinder? its just a button crossing the same wires as the ignition cylinder would, right?
