I'll sell you the actuator and the cable if you want it. I just took it off when I did my swap. I also have the control unit. If you have the wiring diagram for the 99-00 you can see how the wiring should be run.

You will also need a clutch switch, and different brake switch. You will need the buttons and lever from the steering wheel, and probably the clock spring too, unless yours is the same. (If it has 5 wires it is the same.)

did your 98rs come without cruise too or was that not an option?

the the butterfly actuator at the throttle body (the thing that the accelerator wire connects to and opens the butterfly valve) has a second acturaor ready for the cruise control wire. is that normal? but otherwise there are no signs that it ever had CC.

installing cruise control is very easy, actually.... i did it to mine when i first got it. Cruise was not a factory equipped option, it was a dealer installed option, so everything is plug and play. You need the control module (behind the driver's side kick panel), the actuator and cable (under hood) the brake pedal switch, the clutch pedal switch (MT only... obviously) the main power button for the dash, and the steering wheel stalk.... All plugs you need are there, just have to do a little looking.... Just make sure you disconnect the battery before you pull the airbag. I'm not sure what models will fit, but my donor car was a 2000 L wagon 5spd..... i know the control module and underhood actuator is not compatible from a legacy, but the pedal switches and power button may be, and the steering wheel stalk is the same.
