Does the cruise control still work after the 6spd swap ?

Yes, cruise works fine.

Thanks again for the help and tips with the wiring Kyle! :)
My swap has been up and running for two months now ... no issues

I programmed the ECM with manual transmission configuration and created a custom tune file for the engine modifications. Shoot me a PM If you are performing a conversion and need assistance.

No one's posted a pic of the holes they cut in the firewall for the pedal. Anyone got some before and afters?

Great work! I was watching your videos and noticed you were running at Lebanon Vally. Are you local to the capital district? I’m 15 min from the track.

The owner of the Caprice that was at the track lives in NY. I think he is an hour from the track. Im up in NH by the Mass border.

THanks Kyle, got to peek at mine in the Wrecked SS I have, just seems like a passthrough hole really. I though it would be much more involved. But would love to see how you did it.
