You'd be fine, it's an identical model including the majority of component mounting points. Just clarify before you buy or make an installation.

Cruise Control

Dear Noel

I have a 2.0 TSX 5speed auto in Spore, am interested in fitting a original cruise control unit. Do you have any ideas?

Regards

So your steering wheel has no cruise control functions, right? If so, you'd need quite a few parts and the cost is gonna be approximately $3K or more, half goes to the new steering wheel BTW.

However, you can easily find and fit aftermarket cruise control systems for around a few hundred dollars instead.

If you're talking about the OEM parts required, here are just some without going into detail.

- Steering wheel with cruise control functionality.
- Cruise control wiring harness.
- Drive-By-Wire cruise compatible throttle control unit.
- Related harness to throttle control unit.

Or one of a universal aftermarket cruise control units for drive-by-wire cars can be found at this company.

Thanks Rob,

I am glad to be part of this forum as I find it really interesting with some really cool people !! :cool:
Moreover I've been a honda/acura fan from some time now. My first honda was a 97 civic EK4 with the 1.6 DOHC vtec engine and spoon exhaust which I now sold in order to order my new accord.
Also since no body sells quality aftermarket toys at my end, I have to buy everything from overseas so your comments on different matters really helps..

Cheers !!

Yes Noel, the B engines are ferocious, mine did 15sec quarter mile.
Only mods were a spoon N1 exhaust attached to the standard manifold (catalic eliminated) and Kumho ecsta semi slcks rubber.
You should see the JDM integras we have here, they do low 12 seconds with a turbo install !!
