Cruise control swap with EJ22 conversion

Do you know what year your EJ22 is from?
My suggestion on adding cruise would be to try and find a cruise control setup on a mid 90's Impreza. They made an "add-on" kit which meant its interaction with the ECU was relatively limited or none at all. You would need to add things or tie into the existing brake switches, etc. Here is the install kit for the mid-90's Imprezas. This may help in determining what all you need and how to make the wiring work.
I actually grabbed a cruise throttle cable from an Impreza a couple years back when I was in the Denver area and was finally able to install the cruise in my Outback sport.

Does your vanagon have a VSS hooked up? I know many vanagon owners do not use a speed sensor with the EJ swap.
That is the one signal that is shared by Cruise and Engine computers so you will need it.
The other wire you need from the ECU is Tach signal (Black/blue wire)
Everything else for the Cruise computer is seperate
Brake light signal
2nd brake switch (normally closed......opens when you hit brakes.....loops through clutch or "N" switch)
Clutch switch (loops with brake circuit)
Main "on" switch
"set" and "resume" switches.

I've used this kit twice now with great results: http://www.ebay.com....8dd26d6f&_uhb=1
The first application was with my EJ22 converted L series. I've used the supplied magnets on the tail (prop) shaft for the Vehicle Speed Sensor pick up, works well.
The other application was on my mother inlaw's Brumby. I'll be looking at adding it to my Brumby once it's on the road.

I'll also add that the above kit is for an "auto" - but a second brake switch on the clutch pedal is an easy conversion to make it a "manual" kit rather than buying their kit.

I also recommend an aftermarket, universal kit. It's going to be much easier to interface with your setup...
