    i have a 92 dx hatch, 15b7, manual, stock ecu, stock all around as far as electrical. i use my car as a daily commuter, and i periodically go out of state for various reasons, so i put alot of miles on my car. i want to put a cruize control unit into it and be lazy and stop leaving my foot on the gas all the time. is it possible, i'm not that knowledgeable about the cruize control system, i have a hanes manual and it doesn't look complicated, i'm thinking it's plug it all up and wire a few wires here and there, and done, but then again i've never tackled such a thing, please reply only if you have decent advice pertaining to this topic, other wise just read please.

    thanks

    If your car doesn't already have it, It might be kinda hard to put in beacause there is the cruise box, that sits on top of the drivers side engine mount, the brain of the unit that is located under the left driver's kick panel and a shitload of wiring to be done.

    the wiring i can do, not a big deal, i just need to know about how much time this is going to cost me, and is it difficult. i figure it's not that big of a task, but will be challenging, thanks all for the comments, please continue.

    Its an option that can be installed at the dealership, So it Can't be that bad. You might call a dealer and ask how much it would cost for a cruise control kit.. See if they have one and how much they would charge you to install it..

    That should give you the inspiration to do it yourself :D

    Cruise control adds like 10 pounds to the car. Now if you take the stock horsepower of a honda (7) and add 10 hp for racing stripes and neons, you are up to 17hp.. subtract 32 HP from the total for all that fat ass weight you just added and you have -15hp.... You'll have to strap on 4 briggs and statton engines just to get down the road...

    and those fuckers weigh like 35 pounds each...
