The year in this context is important; it is the first model year with the electronic speedometer. It however has a mechanical throttle, not throttle by wire.
Converse to many other cars, the throttle pedal lacks a return spring; only the throttle body does, so the cruise control wire would be attached to the pedals. As such, given the speedometer's location, the entire unit can be installed in the dashboard without drilling holes in the firewall as far as I can tell.
Problem is, that no matter what custom shop I find, they immediately shy away from it the moment they hear it has a mechanical linkage. I have work, so I can't do this during the day when there's light out. That said, I do have a second car, so if it took more than a single day to install the cruise control that would be acceptable.
I would like to find a mechanic that would be willing to install cruise control. Can I please get some kind of lead on this?
have the same problem?
