Title says most all of it.
Son has '90 fwd 5 speed manual wagon.
Can a control unit be pulled off junker? Big job?
How about new retro fit equipment.

easy job! Absolutely make sure you get the right cruise computer for the right transmission in the car (auto trans CC computer will not work on a manual trans car)

You need:
-the cable and articulator that goes under the hood
-the correct CC computer
-the switch you put into the dash
-the switch you put in the steering wheel (you do not need the whole wheel)
-brake light switch
-clutch switch

Notice I didn't say anything about wireing....'cause it is already there!!!!!!

All parts are easy to find and the computer location is to the right of the glove box (you have to remove the GB) and ti is a little bit of a pain in the a$$ to get at but not too bad. All parts are interchangable with automatics/manuals EXCEPT the actual computer. You need to make sure all the parts come from the same generation of legacy...you are interested in 90-94 only.

Believe it or not this is super easy to do!!!!! if you know what you are doing it is an hour tops seriously since it is all "plug and play"

also make sure you get some extra bolts and nuts while doing this...it sucks when you lose one and it helps sometimes to show where things should go.
