What is it that causes the cruise control to not work?

Since the ECM is now a custom programmed device utilizing LS V8 engine controls yet still retaining Kappa Can bus body communication there is something in the programming that is changed and our developer is trying to figure it out.

Here is my technical question.
You drop a V8 in a kappa

WTF would you want to cruise?
:D

Seems like a non issue to me

":censor: in'!!!" (my apologies for my Cali', street racer's, circa '69, slang...) It does look a bit snug up against the radiator. Does any one make a turbo kit for that engine? That should really take it from "mean" to "insane!"  I imagine, a few frame mods would then also be needed... droolin' at the possibilities... :drool: lol
