13. The '03 Cummins 24-valve is not fly-by-wire like the Power Stroke, so it required the addition of a mechanical throttle cable. A Ford cable from a gasoline application was used and it's mated to the Cummins throttle lever via a DeStroked throttle cable kit. At the pedal, Zuccarello made a bracket to accept the cable. One of the reasons Zuccarello chose this generation of Cummins engine was that he felt that it would be the most receptive to cruise control. His plan is to use a Ford gas engine cruise control servo and hardwire it into the vehicle so it will operate a cable to run the throttle.
