I can really picture the control cable-to-module configuration. Can Rostra 250-1223 control cable have gradual bends in it?

The cable can be looped so long as the inner braided cable still moves freely inside the outer casing. Pretty easy to check. Obviously the straighter the shot the better it can pull, but it is not uncommon to have to put a full 180 or even a 360 loop to wind up the excess cabling. The bigger the loop the better it is.

Thanks. That solves a big problem.

When Rostra says do not install controller in passenger cabin due to "noise", what kind of noise are they talking about? How loud?

Not the noise you'll hear...
They mean electrical noise.

I may be adding further confusion to the situation but my redneck engineer hat popped on and I had a thought. What about some sort of pulley behind the pedal allowing the cruise to sit 90 degrees to the side of the pedal on either side. Attach a cable to do the pulling through the pulley and then attach the rostra cable to the end of that new cable?  cruise control with dbw - Page 2 - Last Post -- posted image. I done confused myself. cruise control with dbw - Page 2 - Last Post -- posted image. Whatever the result is here obviously fail safes need to be considered. As in will any of what you add cause the throttle to either not work, or worse get stuck.

That's not a bad idea. A pulley attached to the firewal; a cable from the pedal (would have to attach below the pivot, due to configuration of dbw) through pulley and then to control cable. It will be several months before I get to it, but will post success - or lack of - here.
