      Cruise Control is managed by the ECU.

      Sounds Like Limp Mode to me. Pull Codes from your car. You may be running into over-boost or under-boost resulting from the mod. TL:DR - Remove the "BoV".

      Checked all my fuses. No Problems.

      Checked the Plugs on the ECU, no problems.

      Checked intake filter - not (too) filthy.

      I use either a clean soft paint Brush or a Tooth Brush to get in all the nooks and crannies for this car. Not had a problem getting any gunk out with these tools. :wave:

      This thread made my heart sad for about 2 min. I wish the paint was not as soft as warm butter. Also, birds in PR like to find freshly washed cars and crap upon them. Murphy is a bitch.
