So with so many "Barra conversion's" goin around lately and to fine them in crapadoors is unreal :-) I've put a Intec in my EL and I know the Twin cam I6 will fit but one thing held me back from fitting it " Cruse Control" El cable operated barra fly by wire. So has anyone come up with a way to over come this??

Think the work around was fit the electronic throttle and hardware or get the electronic throttle disabled in the PCM (while getting a PATS disabled) and run the cable throttle.
I could be wrong here tho

i made a box up for the cruise in a ED and while it worked, when brakes applied you would have to turn engine off and on to reset

Well, when you run the Barra in a ED or any other car for that matter and retain the fly by wire accelerator you can make the box up to run cruise........
